Have swelling on back of.tubes behind testes, had sti check and everything's come back fine? Sperm is watery than normal

Thanks for this question

This is likely epididymitis

This is an infection of the tubes that carry sperm from the testes to the penis.

These can get infected in otherwise normal people and it isn't necessarily an STI

I would recommend anti inflammatories like ibuprofen and elevating the testes

you probably also need an antibiotic like cipro or doxycycline.
