my testicles are very sensitives and sometimes painfull. If

Resolved Question:

my testicles are very sensitives and sometimes painfull. If the cat walks on me, it makes me jump and i get a pain higher up near my bladder. l cant feel any lumps, but they definately dont feel right. At best its a discomfort i am nearly always aware of and at worst its a pain like afterl you've been kicked in your testicles.
I don't know if is related but my girlfriend has said my semen stings when it comes in contact with her skin. She says that after giving oral sex, her mouth feels numb, like its had a dentists injection.

Hello
You need to see your doctor, and possibly a urologist.
Why have you not done this? It has been 6 months.
The key to correct treatment is follow up.
You might have had no infection.
You might have prostate infection but received the wrong antibiotic?
Which antibiotic did you receive?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

i dont know.

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
OK
Chronic prostatitis can cause this situation, or even non-bactrial prostatitis.
A common antibiotic regiment would be doxycicline, up to 4 weeks.
A prostate exam and massage, followed by a urine sent for analysis and culture should be done.
This is why you should ask your doctor for a referral.
Can you do that?

yes i can see my local gp. Will they need to take a sperm sample as well?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
they will do the prostate exam and then a urine sample.
You don't need sperm to diagnose an infection.
I suspect you had an inadequate antibiotic.
They should also check your testicles on exam.
They should check for hernia as well.
If they can not figure it out, ask for a referral to a urologist.
