Let me start by saying this post is a blessing. For 3 months I've been suffering from random burn after urination, random burn after ejaculation, dribbling of urine when I'm done going to the bathroom, and random discomfort in my testicles. I've been to the urologist twice and they said I'm perfectly fine because my UA's came back normal. Did a physical check on my prostate, and that was fine too. So I too went to Microgendx and sure enough, my semen was positive for staphylococcus epidermidis. I went to my doctors for medication, but they denied me saying it was a false test and likely due to contamination. So I purchased Cepholexin outside of my insurance and I'm on day 4. Question - did anyone experience tenderness in the testicles too? I'm still experiencing random pain/discomfort and I'm wondering if anyone had any similarities? I'm so desperate to feel better, so if anyone can follow up with how they eventually overcame this, I would greatly appreciate it!
Hi, what antibotics did you use? How was the effect? I have Staphylococcus epidermidis in urine and semen in the Microgendx test as well. I was prescribed to take Clindamycin. It was effective. I am in Canada, and happy to discuss more details with you.
Fosfomycin was another I took with good results. I also been suffering for 2 plus years
Took the medicine linezolid fir a month knocked them both out. Was amazing was having amazing sex drive again and shooting orgasms after treatment. Before that wasn’t even interested in sex. It burned like hell
2 years is a long time. Feel for you bro. This article is pretty good https://www.aafp.org/afp/2000/0515/p3015.html (copy and paste in browser). It hits a lot of details. Staph is not the most common pathogen to cause a chronic prostatitis. But it happens. Antibiotics are often targeted to work on some bacteria better than others. Are they suggesting a different antibiotic to rid of staph? Drug resistance is an increasing issue too with staph. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/17445677/ Here's an article I found helpful for other ideas for treatment too. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/prostatitis/expert-answers/prostate-infection/faq-20058501
