Hi can anyone help please?

A few weeks ago (Before lockdown) a woman gave me a hand job. She spat on my penis for lube, we didn’t have sex nor did my penis enter her mouth.

I have read contradicting reports online, some say that Chlamydia and Gonnorhea can be spread in this way, other say that neither can be spread through saliva and my penis would need to make direct contact with bacteria in her throat to contract either infection.

Anyway, I’m after advice. IS it possible I could be infected with either?

Dear Billy,

I think it would be very unusual to have caught gonorrhoea and/or chlamydia from someone masturbating you all those weeks ago. The majority of men with gonococcal or chlamydial urethritis (penile infection) would have symptoms of penile discharge and pain passing urine within a week or so following contact. Do you currently have any of these symptoms?

If you want to be sure, go online and Google 'NHS online STD test' and apply for a self-test kit that can be posted to you.

Thanks for your reply Adhari, I don’t have any burning when urinating or discharge, I have however had a bit of aching in my pelvic area and seem to be peeing a little more often than usual.

Best to get tested if these concerns are playing on your mind.

It is highly unlikely that either bacteria would be able to travel into your urethra and cause an infection this way.
