Penis tip pain.. please reply

I have been experiencing penis tip pain for over a year now, I never had any visible sores on my penis or testicles. I went to doctor he tested me for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea which came back negative 1 year and 6 months ago when I first started having this issue.
But my Doctor thinks that it is chronic Prostatitis which I am suffering.
I have this going on for 1.5 year now and every week I may have pain for a day or 2 and then it is completely fine. I also have painful erecting sometimes.

Just for my peace of my mind after looking online on the internet. I got tested for HSV on personal request.
My HSV 1 Igg CLIA came negative and also the HSV 2 Igg CLIA was negative, but the HSV1&2 Igm CLIA came back positive.. How come it is possible IGG is negative and IGM is positive as I am not sexually active since 1.5 year

Have you ever been tested for mycoplasma genitalium?

The herpes IgM is a terrible test and shouldn't have been done on you. First, the timing was way off, as it is designed to look for new infections, and you wouldn't have had a new infection if you'd not been sexually active for well over a year. Second, it is just unreliable. It can cross react with other herpes family viruses, like chicken pox. My own IgM was negative when it should have been positive, and positive when it should have been negative. Ignore that you had it. It shouldn't be done on anyone other than newborns.



So what do you have? It honestly could be chronic prostatitis. Classic symptoms of that are penis tip pain and painful erections.




It definitely wouldn't hurt to make sure you've been tested for mycoplasma. You definitely want to rule out all possible causes of infection.
