    I suspect Gonohrrea but never had any discharge, but at times my urine would be cloudy and would leave a chalky residue on darker coloured wc's, also the doctor told me if my urine comes out forked? with two seprate streams its a sign of the disease because a pimple like growth comes up in the urethra and there is some burning while peeing, didnt get it treated in time so it has affected my body in some way.

    It could also be molluscum contagiosum or syphilis. I've never heard of a bump like that associated with gonorrhea. Did you get test results back from your doctor?


    Take a look here:

    Not a website I normally use, but easily understood.

    No its not any of the two things you mentioned nor do the symptoms sound like Gonohrrea, I didnt go back to the doctor as I went with complaint almost a decade later.

    I also got Herpes Zoster commonly known as Shingles on my torso, that was painful, dont even want to think what genital herpes is like, by the way I got all this after I had bought a book on STD's with pictures that had almost got me to swear off sex.

    And I dont know from where on earth I got crabs or Pubic Lice, unless someone wore my clothes.

    FPKHAN--This is a very difficult topic to discuss in an open forum. As you can see, there are many different responses. This is a most distasteful part for many gay men of living a sexually active life. The risks of sexual activity are important to be aware of. I'm not sure what resources would be available in Pakistan to help you understand what they are and how to protect yourself. Have you run across any websites for gay people in Islamic cultures?

    I found this in a Wikipedia article on health care in Pakistan:

    It is difficult to show a reliable breakup of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in Pakistan. Of the few studies available, syphilis has been shown to form a third of the STIs, followed closely by Gonococcal Urethritis. Other studies, however, mention non-specific urethritis as the leading disease. The variation in figures probably depend upon the availability of resources to the workers and the population under study.
    The exact incidence of STIs is difficult to calculate, especially in Pakistan, because of lack of adequate health infrastructure and reporting system, lack of epidemiological studies, social shyness on part of the community in general and inadequate data on the male or female sex workers' community.
    A 2002 study examined the risk of Pakistani truck drivers acquiring STIs. It found that multiple sexual partnerships were common, despite high levels of awareness of the sexual transmission of HIV. It reported that truck drivers did not realize the risks associated with unprotected sex, and that most did not believe AIDS existed in their country. The report recommended that condom use should be promoted, in particular by interpersonal communication.[7]

    Good luck on educating yourself so you can take better care of yourself and those around you. Rob

    I'm sorry, but I have difficulty following what symptoms you are having and the time line. You definitely need to see a physician.

    GC ( medical shorthand for gonorrhea) and chlamydia may not have a discharge. The discharge of GC, when present, is white and the discharge of chlamydia is clear. If left untreated, a stricture in the urethra can develop. The stricture can result in a split or forked urine stream. GC and chlamydia are not usually associated with sores or bumps.

    There are STDs that can cause sores and skin lesions. These diseases are extremely rare in North America and Western Europe but are problematic in parts of Asia and Africa. If your interested and want to read more, the list is syphilis, chancroid, LGV and granuloma inguinale

    Off topic: some historians believed that the Russian Czar Peter the Great died of renal failure due to urine back up from a GC stricture blocking the urethra.
