Pain in testicles

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi, i have pain in testicles after anal sex with my gf since summer of 2017! I got pain on next day, went to urologist. I made microbiology of sperm which showed e. coli. He prescribed me 10 days norfloxicin and 1 pack monural! I made new microbiology after 15days which showed Single colonies of e. coliand he told me thats im cured. After the course the pain decreased significantly, but after 2 months its hurt me again! This time urologist prescribed me 7days IV amikacin and 5days zinat oral! The pain come back again after 2 months and new microbiology showed enterococcus! I dont had sex in this period of tine and dont know how i got them. After 3 months without any treatment i made new microbiology which showed again e. Coli?! My testicles are not swollen i have only moderate pain. They made me ultrasound on my prostate and toched it with fingers. The prostate is not painful, not enlarge. I pee normally. The only problem is the psin in testicles! When i walk the pain decreased! What to do, can someone give me advice?

    Ask for colour doppler scrotal ultrasound to check for varicoceles/hydroceles/ torsion of the spermatic cord. Also ask to be checked for epididimytis as e.coli could migrate into the epididymis. Good luck.

    Ivan, you've already had Norfloxacin so before you consider taking a long course Cipro, which is from the same family, please consider that this class of antibiotics can cause serious side effects. They are called the fluoroquinolones and there is a forum on this site especially for them - look for fluoroquinolone antibiotics and you'll find the discussions.

    Some of the people took only one course of them while others took several. It doesn't seem to make much difference which one you take, there are about 5 common names ending in "-floxacin" but there are very many generic names too so look out for the actual class name.

    If you read the discussions you'll see that the side effects can be very serious and also long lasting (maybe permanent). The FDA and the EMA have issued warnings about them and here in the UK all doctors are being sent letters to warn them of the dangers.
