During July I had used a sex toy I owned but never shared with
anyone but I had not cleaned it in over a week, I washed it in antiseptic (Dettol) before use. One week later I had unprotected oral sex with someone with a chesty phlegmy cough and she coughed into my penis during oral sex. This person also performed outercourse on me so some of the fluids from her vagina were on my penis. We never had intercourse, at all.
Later that night I noticed a sting in my urethra. No discharge. No pain during urination. I went to my GP, she asked for a urine sample, she said she saw a SLIGHT HINT of blood in the sample, not seen by the eye. Said it was a Urinary Tract Infection. After a week's course of Trimethoprim that did nothing, I went back and was given 14 days of Ciproflaxacin. 10 days in and still nothing.
By then whatever it was, it moved to my right testicle and caused stinging there. I was having a wriggling sensation in Urethra also. Undergone Cystoscopy at some point too, no stricture found. All was normal. I went to the GUM clinic where I was already tested for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea and both came back negative.
I was finally seen by a Urologist who confirmed by suspicion that it was Non-specific Urethritis and was given Minocycline for two weeks. It resolved the issue by day 10. However it returned two days later. I was given Zithromax (Azithromicin) for 6 days. Finished that, did nothing. I had Doxycycline for a week and then that cleared the symptoms finally by early October. No more sting/burn in urethra or testicle.
However what remained was sometimes after excessive masturbation, I would get a shooting pain in urethra. I was told it was most likely left over inflammation.
This has lasted me until January of this year. I had unprotected oral sex start of January. First sexual encounter since the whole ordeal. Wriggling sensation in urethra slightly returned after that. But then rest of January resumed fine.
I excessively masturbated few days ago and then the symptoms have returned (Sting in Urethra / Wriggling sensation). But no pain in testicle. Do you think perhaps this is the same infection that never went away reappearing? New infection? Maybe it was Trich? Inflammation?
I still need assistance.
I had scrotal ultrasound, it was normal.
Unfortunately they don't test for anything besides Chlamydia and Gonorrhea here.
However that was what I suspected at the time as well, back when the infection first happened. And Doxycycline did clear the random sting/burn in urethra and testicle
If anything, sometimes it feels like when I urinate, and as you know when you urinate you still get some droplets left behind. Since this issue, I've had more droplets i've had to clear after urinating.
I was on Cipro initially back in September, 10 days. Did nothing. That was when the Scrotal ultrasound was suggested and returned normal.
If it actually is just left over inflammation and non-infectious, how long does it take to calm down?
I appreciate your feedback highly. Well, Doxycycline did end me from my misery initially, no more burning/sting in urethra or testicle.
But i'm going to do the Ureaplasma and Mycoplasma test, just found one online here in the UL.
Even if I never had any sting/pain for nearly three months? Only after excessive vigorous masturbation.
I'm doing a full screen for everything including mycoplasma and ureaplasma anyway. But you'd think if it were another random germ then surely one of all the antibiotics I did would have cleared it.
I will make the payment shortly.
Also, is Flagyl useful in this situation? Seems like I can get it easier around here without prescription.
The week of Doxy totally took the sting and burn and testicle pain away back in October. What only remained was a shooting feeling / slight burn after vigorous masturbation. ie - if I masturbated more than twice a day.
I thought that was left over inflammation.
Thanks Doc. Okay one last question.. What do you think is most likely.
That the germ never went away in the first place and has now resurfaced? (Because I only and only got the sting/shooting sensation after masturbating more than once a day). Never at random times like it was before Doxycycline.
Or is this just left over inflammation (even if its after 3 months of Doxycycline) because I took too long to take the right antibiotic initially?
Oh and the the thing about the using the sex toy that wasnt washed for a while before I used an antiseptic before use, is that irrelevant?
