hi, ill try to keep this short as possible... i'm a 29 yr old male, 2 months ago i had unprotected sex, little while after i had the discharge and tingling in penis, went to my GUM clinic and diagnosed with NSU, was given Zithromax, 4 tablets took in one dose. day or 2 later, after getting home from work i was peeing every 20mins, literally needed to go minutes after last going. well that was 7 weeks ago, i'm still getting frequent urination, especially at work where im moving around a lot. discharge has gone away, but the head of my penis is still very sensitive.... resulting in very premature ejaculation. The constant feeling of needing to urinate is really getting me down. my biggest fear is never being 100% better again, the constant need to urinate for 7 weeks? and constant "dribbling of urine" (tiny amounts, but penis under the foreskin is always damp) surely it should have got better by now?? my doctor has done loads of urine and blood tests, all came back good, hes referred me to a urologist but that's months away.... i can't take much more of this. any ideas what could be causing this? blood tests taken were PSA, kidney function, full blood count, all normal.

This is typical of prostate inflamation. It can be hard to clear up.
I suggest your doctor do a urinalysis and culture AFTER doing a prostate exam to see if any bugs can be identified.
In fact it can also be inflammation without infection.
In this case specific non antibiotic medications can help.
