UTI leading to some form of Prostatitis?


Back in February, I had unprotected sex with a female. Almost Immediately after (1 day later) I experienced burning in the genital region (a general burn all over). I got tested for STDs, everything came back negative. However, I did a urine sample, and it did come back with positive nitrates being present, so positive for UTI. I waited 7 days after the sexual encounter to take action.

From that point, I was put on 10 days of cipro, no relief just yet but the urine sample was negative after the follow up appointment and treatment.

I went to a urologist and he may have thought i had bacteria enter my prostate, so he put me on 30 days of cipro. he also checked the prostate and said it didn't feel abnormal, proper size.
After those 30 days I went through 14 days of doxycycline.

Today I still don't feel 100% but definitely better. i feel a little discomfort in between my anus and scrotum and shaft of penis. I am eager to find out what is going on with me as I want these symptoms to simple disappear. it has almost been 3 months since the encounter.

Sounds like you've worked with your doctors and had good care.  Hopefully they were right on the money in their diagnosis. You tested clean for STD's so that's great.  And hopefully your long care using antibiotics has relieved you of the bacteria and you will feel more and more normal.  Do you have any follow up visits about this matter coming up with your doctor?
