Every time I get an erection, I start bleeding from my penis. Do I have an STD?

My girlfriend and I were dry humping with our clothes on. She was on top of me and rubbed herself on me. Five or ten minutes later, I noticed I was bleeding from my penis. I was really embarrassed...and now every time I get an erection, I start bleeding from my penis. Do I have an STD?

I itch in the testicle region. And one testicle looks bigger than before...also, my scrotum can get really red. What’s going on?

Over the last year, I’ve been itching in the testicle region...it comes and goes. My scrotum can get really red, and sometimes it feels like shooting pain or insects biting. One of my testicles also looks bigger than before. What’s going on?

Could this rash on my penis be a yeast infection? Can men get yeast infections?

I have cracked skin on the tip of my foreskin. It’s not painful, itchy or sore and it feels just like the other skin around it. The only difference is that its "blemished" color makes it stand out. I have had unprotected sex once (due to a condom break), but I have had this blemish ever since I can remember - even before I became sexually active. Occasionally, when I masturbate too much it will get red and irritated, and the dead skin may scab. I got checked for STDs at a clinic twice, and it wasn't diagnosed as anything...and from what I gather online, what I have is similar to a yeast rash. I thought it was more common for girls to get yeast infections. What’s your advice?

My boyfriend has red lines around his penis...is an STD the cause?

My boyfriend has red lines around his penis, just below the head. Sometimes they are dry and chapped, and sometimes they look very red and shiny. He says sometimes they’re sore, and intercourse is irritating. I think it’s from having sex with different partners. I may be wrong, but when I ask him to get his symptoms checked out, he refuses.
