Post Symptoms for undiagnosed genital infection/condition
Hello all I’m 27 years old from the UK and just looking for some advice or maybe discussion with someone who have the same symptoms as myself.

So it all started 10 months ago where I had unprotected sex with a new partner. A couple of weeks after this I had a stinging sensation at the tip of my penis and down the shaft (urethra) after having a bath. This lasted an hour or so and gradually turned more into an itch. At this point I went to the STD clinic and got tested - to my surprise all came back negative. In the mean time I got testicular pain/swelling so went up GP who prescribed doxycycline which worked for a bit but not long term. After a few days the symptoms left. A few weeks later they came back and this has been the case since.

Symptoms just coming and going which include: penis itching, pain in between penis and anus (when sitting), pain/swelling of testicles and now slight clear discharge.

Over the months I have been back and fire to std clinics 5 times and always been negative. I demanded recently to be tested for Mycoplasma but that too has come back negative. I was even given mycoplasma antibiotics while results returned. All in all I’ve taken cipro, doxy, metronidazole, azthomizoryn and another one. I paid to go to a urologist who said it’ll just pass (unreal!) said I’m too young for prostatitis too.

Is this possible prostatitis?

Before the new sexual partner for 12/18 months after ejaculating I would have the urge to pee which would be a slight burn but the real issue was I continued to feel the urge to pee after finishing. It was almost as if I was still peeing but I wasn’t. Had to just sit on the toilet until it passed - could this be the cause?

I would also masterbate 2 sometimes 3 times a day with out fail. Another contributor maybe? I would also always ‘pull out’ in sex and catch the end of the penis to avoid ‘mess’.

I was extremely stressed at the time thinking it was STD and still stress now - this probably doesn’t help.

My diet is poor, I drink a lot of beer on the weekends, a lot of caffeine in the week and a lot of chocolate. Although I am slight. Excercise is on hold too. Thinking of changing my diet and get exvecising to see what helps.

Seriously any opinions welcome. Please help!

Thank you

Classic CPPS. Don't waste your time chasing an infection that isn't there. Clean up the diet, light exercise, get a pelvic floor assessment and look for mental health specialist who specialize in chronic pain

Thank you for your response.

So the symptoms coincide with cpps.

Do you have any idea what might have caused it? I was thinking the peeing after ejaculating was weird - or could it be a mixture?

Definitely clean up the diet. You are making things worse with the alcohol and caffeine.

Likely a combination of things - stress, less than healthy lifestyle probably being the biggest factors

Alcohol and caffeine can make prostatitis / CPPS worse, but it doesn't mean they automatically do or are, as I don't drink much caffeine or alcohol and I don't eat chocolate or candy sugar often either. It probably wouldn't be harmful to change diet and at least reduce caffeine, alcohol, and chocolate. But that most likely isn't going to be a cure-all or instant reduction of problems. Relaxing as much as possible, light exercise, and avoiding too much exposure to doctors and tests and medicines could also be a help.

Cleaning up your diet wont hurt...but... i went through similar events and same antibiotics, plus a few more. I have worked out 5 times a week for years, eat clean, dont drink alcohol, never smoke anything and i still "caught" it and have had it for 2 years.
I dont know what "it" is as i suffer very little discomfort, more just redness and swelling of penis and urethra after ejaculation. Test 6 times by culture, 3 timez by dna. Was positive for myco first time but neg twice since then....

Also get a doughnut pillow of some kind and stand up at raised keyboard and monitor if neccessary.
Soaking in warm bath also helps some patients.
If the prostate hurts when touched that should verify the disease location.

I would pay for a postal semen culture with medichecks.co.uk

As if it happened after sex, likely an infection.

I would defo clean up diet, no processed food, gluten, caffeine, alcohol or diary.

Then see how you feel and report back on semen culture results.
