I know this was a long time ago but I am now in an almost identical situation and am wondering how it worked out? Was it caused by and sti or something else?
It definitely does NOT mean he was cheating - I was diagnosed w/ Epididymitis myself many years ago (around age 32), and at that time I wasn’t in a relationship & hadn’t been for a cpl yrs, and had not had any recent sexual encounters. The Dr told me it was likely an infection from other existing bacteria in my system that somehow got into the genitourinary tract. I took a course of antibiotics & was told to avoid sexual activity & it did clear up after a few weeks. So don’t assume your husband cheated - he could very well have this without doing anything he shouldn’t !!
Epididymitis can be caused by either STD or UTI. In males 14-35 years of age, epididymitis is more frequently caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Chlamydia trachomatis. Otherwise, epididymitis is more frequently caused by Escherichia coli.
I had Testicular Cancer when i was 23 , I'm 56 now and I get Epididymis every couple of months , it seem when I take an antibiotic for a cold , the next month ,like clockwork Epididymis, and it has nothing to do with Chlamydia , I have been given a shot for that !!!!!
