Bladder Infection
Hi Doc,

Recently I met a woman in a pub, things got slightly out of hand, we ended up french kissing for quite a while, I then touched her under her skirt, but on top of her panties and stockings, she then put her hand down my trousers and touched me briefly as well as put her finger in my anus, briefly. I had bitten my lip about 3 days before, but the sore was almost healed in my mouth, not open or anything.

I feel extremely guilty about this situation, and have been scared senseless over the past week or so about having caught HIV or an STD. I am attached.

The situation is, and not sure if all of this is in fact psycological due to guilt, I know the mind is an extremely strong thing and can cause symptoms.

I have experienced slight discomfort in my bowel/scrotum area.
It is very slight, it almost feels as though it is between my scrotum and anus, a pressure sort of feeling.
Could this be my prostate, or possibly an STD?
I have not experienced any severe burning when urinating or discharge at all, and my stool is also normal, possibly a bit harder than normal.
Could this just be a reaction to the brief anal stimulation?
Finally, was I at any risk of contracting HIV, can you contract it from french kissing?

Sorry for the extremely long story, but really would like some clarity.

Dee, it looks like everyone out there is having a more exciting time than me – wow, the things that happen in pubs these days! :-)
Anyway, the chance of having caught something is extremely remote and my guess is that it due to feelings of guilt. As long as her nail didn’t cut the skin around your anus you should be all right. Good luck.
