Low Sex drive, having trouble with getting erections

Hello, I'm very worried about my testicles right now. Well, about a week and a half ago,  I started to get this aching pain in my testicles that wouldnt go away. Now it feels like I cant feel them at all, like I've lost almost all sensation and feeling in them. So yesterday, I went to my urologist, who took a urine sample. He told me they found some blood in my urine which indicates a mild infection. So, he put me on antibiotics and motrin to help with the pain. I seem to have lost the ability to get sexually aroused like i use to, and its much harder for me to get an erection if i look at something that would normally get me going. I am able to get erections, I just have to stroke it for a little while and then it gets hard. But still, it doesnt feel very strong like it use to. I'm worried that this infection has caused permanent damage to my testicles, which is affecting my testerone levels, which is affecting my sex drive, which is affecting my ability to get erections. So, I'm just wondering, if the damage is permanent, is there any treatment I can undergo, like medications or low testosterone supplements I can take to increase my low testosterone and help me get my sex drive back and get erections without having to touch just to get one.

Did you already confirm that you have low testosterone level?

No, I have not. But it seems like i have symptoms of low testosterone, and that means that if its low, then my testicles clearly arent working correctly. I'm gonna try and get a blood test though, to see whats happening.

You need to get that test first so we can now how to proceed.

In my opinion, your testosterone level will come back normal. It usually does...

You may just don't have no desire for sex right now because you experience some discomfort in your testicles. You can't enjoy sex or masturbation while you're worrying.

If there is damage, is there some form of treatment you know of, like supplements or some medication that could help me get sexually aroused again and be able to enjoy sex and masturbation?

It depends what the problem is.  It could be all psychological.

There are no supplements like over the counter products that work. They are all scam and waste of money. In fact, they cause side effects once they fully get into your system.

Viagra, Cialis or Levitra may help but again you need to be sexually in the mood and not experiencing performance anxiety in order for the medicine to work.

In my experience, the best aphrodisiac is refraining from masturbation or not doing it so much.

Lets get pass the testosterone testing first...

Keep me posted!
