    I had and STI test a while back and my foreskin is quite painful to pull back. When they tested me last time they had to get 3 nurses in to attempt to try and take a swab of my urethra and i nearly passed out with pain.

    Is there an alternative? I need to get tested but cannot face this pain.

    Thanks

    You need to sort out the problem with your foreskin (sounds like phimosis), rather than just ignoring it. Go to your doctor, they will be able to give you advice

    I had to go to hospital around 7 years ago as i had sex with my gf and she was quite dry. anyway the doctor at the hospital had to push my forskin back up (i nearly passed out with the pain!). he said i could have an op to fix it but if it didnt give me any problems then not to bother.
    I dont find it an everyday issue as if i have sex i make sure my gf is well lubricated etc.

    Im just concerned about going for this STI test. The doctor said from my symptoms i may have chlamydia.
