I'm a 27 year old male that I'd like to consider in pretty good health. I have a history of prostatitis back in April of 2016 which I took care of with a month worth of Cipro 500mgx2 a day. Early this June,I started having discomfort and an urge to urinate after sexual intercourse with female unprotected (I'm uncircumcised if worth noting) starting the day after and suddenly went away. I blamed my symptoms on the alcohol on the account that I had been drinking heavy the night before. I note that at that time I can recall having abdominal pain and flu like symptoms. 3 weeks later my symptoms started to come back and I ended up getting myself checked out, everything came back negative for STD's. My only symptoms at this time was frequent urination and penile discomfort (on/off), no discharge. I had to wait to see my urologist so in the mean time I took Cipro I had on hand that my urologist gave to me incase I had any flare ups. That helped immensely but by the 10th day I experienced some horrible side effects and stopped.
Symptoms came back and finally got in to see my urologist after my neg side effect's and thought it could be a mixture of non-specific urethritis and or prostatitis(no tests). He prescribed me Doxy at 100mgx2 a day for 14 days. I followed directions and really didn't feel like it helped or at least as well as the Cipro did. I have an appointment with my urologist Friday. My question is, could this be NSU or a relapse of prostatitis? Before taking antibiotics could I have passed anything on to another? Maybe it's a UTI (unlikely)? Despite have a bad experience with Cipro, should I take another shot at it if it initially helped me before? I'm concerned and any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
