Guest: Hello doctor, I'm asking this question 2 weeks removed from any type of sexual contact. I've always used protection even though I have had multiple sex partners, but the protection has never been an issue. Even after I'm done, I check and make sure the condom didn't break. I've never had a single symptom in my genital area, not one. It just scares me when I read that some STDs don't carry symptoms for a while. There has been no changes in my body the past 2 weeks, everything is normal. Should I be worried?
Guest: I recently noticed an itchy anus. Concerned if this is an std. I am 28 year old male. Never had anal sex. Always use condoms when engaging in heterosexual intercourse. Please advise your opinions very grateful for any responses. Thank you.

Picture for reference. I was squatting while using camera phone hope this works:
