Chronic Epididymitis ?Antibiotic injections
I've had epididymitis since March, 2012 after ejaculating with a full bladder (has this happened to anyone else?).. The pain is incessant and excruciating :( Over this last year my ejaculations have become weaker and weaker, with a decreased sex drive and difficulty expelling semen (it feels as though the semen is flowing back towards the testicles).

Oral antibiotics helped slightly, though I've been on several courses of different varieties and none have fixed the problem. My testicles now hang quite low and almost seem detached. Wearing briefs makes life bearable, NSAIDS seem to help in the short term, but make it worse in the long term.

I'd be very curious to hear what people think about antibiotic injections (into the epididymis). Has anyone had experience with this?

Thanks very much for any thoughts or help you can offer!

Hi there!

Antibiotic injections directly into the epididymis are not recommended as a part of management of epididymitis, where both infectious and inflammatory causes may have a role in etiology. Also other possibilities of the symptoms such as GU related infections, inflammations, neuro-muscular causes, referred pain from other regions, trauma, erosions, ulcers etc may need to be considered. I would suggest an evaluation by a urologist for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
