Question: Im 16 and don't Know What to do...
|Darkcoco - Thu Apr 21, 2005 6:08 pm||
Help please! Im 16 years old and I am uncircumsized. For the past couple days I have been feeling a burning sensation when I urinate. During the day I will get these hot buring very uncomfortable pains. Also when I squeeze the head of my penis a yellow/white sticky fluid comes out. I think I might have an STD and Im very scared. Someone what should I do or will this hopefully go away?

Although you have not mentioned it, I can only assume that you have had unprotected sex with a casual partner or partners.
The triad of unprotected sexual activity + burning micturition + expressible urethral discharge is indicative of a sexually transmitted disease, most probably gonococcal urethritis or non-specific urethritis.
Get checked and treated as soon as possible at a genitourinary clinic and ensure that all your partners are notified, checked and treated to halt the spread of the disease in the community.
Do not be hopeful that the disease will disappear on its own.
