So I’m going to start from the beginning with my situation. But I ask that judgments are held in responses. I already know that I’ve done things I was absolutely not supposed to and will seek medical advice moving forward. With that being said
I’m a 29-year-old Male, Heterosexual, circumcised (you’ll see why I mention this later)
On the weekend of May 12th I had a one-night stand. Protection was used. Few days later I feel something weird like a tingly feeling so I go see my urologist and he does a physical exam all clear. He orders some tests (almost the complete panel and urine exam) and a sonogram. All of them came back negative gonorrhea and chlamydia were not available so I took azithromycin 500mg for 4 days just to be sure. I did however find out my bladder was retaining urine.
I fly to Miami the first week of June(3rd-8th) and decide to get a complete panel done. While I’m waiting for the results I go out on the boat with some friends. In and out of the ocean for several hours. That night I notice a small irritation near my urethra I immediately freak out and think its herpes. I go to a planned parenthood the next day and the doctor takes a look and says this is absolutely not herpes, maybe just irritated from being in the water all day. I told her about the azithromycin also and that I was waiting for the panel. She immediately mentions that I may be prone to some false negatives and that the CDC treatment for most STD’s is a single super dose of 2g azithromycin. She mentions if I have the medication available to drink it. I get back home and I take the 2 grams. So we fast forward to the last week of June. I’m still retaining liquid in my bladder the urologist can’t figure out for the life of him why. I decide to get a second opinion and once again they have no idea why. I’ve taken a urine flow exam and it looks like a hill side. Up and down instead of one steady stream. And to date I still have this slight irritation next to my urethra. Does not itch or burn when I urinate. Maybe once a day I get the most miniscule itch around it. I’ve made sure to keep the area as dry as possible and e/ven dab my urethra after urinating to be sure no moisture gets trapped. I personally believe I may have candida, but I’m not a doctor. My urologist looked at it and said nothing about it. As far as the urine hesitancy I’m taking something to relax my prostate and another to help widen the passage of the urethra. I’ve felt a little better.
/Also i just recently had a urine culture done. Negative 7/9/2018
So with all this being said. Id like to know if anyone has any idea as to what the hell is wrong with me
