  • Transmit Chlamydia or gonorrhoea through handjob?

    Hi doctor,

    Made a terrible mistake that I have gotten a handjob from a massage parlor during a recent trip.

    I have developed symptoms such as epididymitis with one side of the scrotum swelling. And I have sent in for a std urine test. The doc say its either Chlamydia/gonorrhoea or severe UTI infection.

    Just wonder if a handjob or hand contact with these masseur will be possible to contact such a bacteria?

    Thanks! Btw your blog post are really helpful.

    regards,
    ​​​​​​troubled james

    Although extremely unlikely, my answer to that question will have to be - yes it is possible
    Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are both very contagious
    If the person had contaminated fluids on the hands this could have gotten into your urethra and caused an infection
    I personally have attended to exactly such a case in the past
    But as I said - very rare
    Instead of jumping to conclusions you should await the results of your tests
