Testicular Pain (No STD's)

Hello all,

For the past three weeks, I have experienced a dull ache that seems to go back and fourth between both testicles. For some back story, I had unprotected sex with a girl I know for about 15-20 seconds. Three days later, I started to notice the slight pain. I also started to have diarrhea. Naturally I freaked out and suspected some sort of STD. Since then, I went to immediate care twice and have had two negative tests for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. The doctor said he thought it may be prostatitis and prescribed me 10 days of Ciprofloxacin. Unfortunately, I have had AWFUL side effects of the drug (I was floxed) and had to stop immediately after five days. It seemed like it was helping a little bit but that maybe that's because all the other stuff that was happening to my body.

So my question now becomes, what should I do about this ache now that I know I can't take flouroquinolones? My testicles are not swollen, red, or tender to the touch so I don't think it's epididymitis. Will this get better with time and a healthy diet/supplements, or am I stuck with aching balls for the rest of my life? What a nightmare.

Hi, no std shows symptoms in 3 days but takes about 5 to develop urethra symptoms like puss discharge and buring while urinating. It would appear you suffered an injury from the sex itself. Testes are very sensitive an make take time to heal. You can have an MRI if your overly concerned.

Thank you, Life360. What do you think could be the cause of the initial diarrhea? I'm thinking probably stress from the situation. But it has persisted since then because it is a known side effect of the antibiotic.

change of diet could cause diarrhea and maybe youve been eating fast food cause your stressed out from the sex act.
