Hi, Im a 19 year old male. I've been feeling symptoms of something, but I went to my Urologist and all he took was a urine sample and checked my penis and said nothing was wrong. I don't think that's exactly it.
-Soar throat (Fever like Symptoms)
-Occasional pain between and to the right of belly button and penis.
-Random Mild Discomfort in penis.
-No burning during urination, but mild discomfort during ejaculation
-Mild pain in lower back (kidney area)
I don't know exactly if it is an STD, It could be anything, I've heard that it might be a male yeast infection and The testing facilities say its too soon to test for STD's, its only been 2 weeks since any possibility of me catching anything. So I'd very much appreciate if someone can give any kind of diagnosis through knowing symptoms alone, Please. Thankyou.

Your symptoms may be from a variety of problems. It may be due to an infection such as a prostatitis or inflammation of the intestines in the area from a virus. Off hand it doesn't sound like an STD; however, any time STD's are possible I recommend being tested since they can have some serious complications if left untreated.
It should not be too early to test for most of the STD's at this point.
If your symptoms persist I would suggest you see a primary care doctor (rather than the urological specialist) for an evaluation. This way you get a whole body perspective rather than just the urological system.
