Post Enterococcus faecalis from anal sex
Do all of you guys who have found enterococcus faecalis
In your urethra or prostatic fluid have engaged in anal intercourse ?

I mistakenly engaged once or twice and the symptoms showed 6-8 months after

And it seems impossible to eradicate

I had it...never did anal...certainly never will now! Prostatitis went away completely on its own...not at all convinced enterococcus was the cause. I suspect it's pretty normal down there.

You were doing the daily prostate massages though 454? Did the massages ever result in EPS'ing yourself? Just curious, I am considering attempting those to hopefully end what I am dealing with.

Did you take any medicine 454?
I took cipro, avelox, augmentin, Bactrim, doxyclicline


Did you have problems with your sperm? Testicle pain? Penis pain?

At one time I was doing daily massage, maybe for almost a year in total. Never had any eps though, not even when the uro did it. You might as well give it a try, there's not much to lose and it did help my symptoms.

I had dixy, Cipro, levo, moxi, fosfo, augmentin...none of them cured it in their own right. And the enterococcus was detected actually AFTER I had been on doxy, Cipro, levo, and moxi for a combine 5-6mo total. Sorry I don't see how any bacteria survives all that which is why I suspect it's not all that abnormal to find it down there.

I don't have any sperm (vasectomy in 2012) so I have no problems there. Never any obvious problems with my semen though.

I understand
So how do you feel now? Any side effects from the abxs?

Is your prostatitis cured?

I suspect I have more than enterococcus and mycoplasma , since I did unprotected anal
I feel my penis and balls are changing (shrinking)

Less sperm
Redness in ski penis
Pelvic dull pain and what not

For how long did you take fosfomycin?
I'm trying to have that now


I also have thyroid problems so that's why I tried to be as careful as possible with abxs

Have you had a positive culture? I had EF and tried all the usual Cipro, Doxy, Nitro etc only thing that worked was Fosfo for me.
