I am a 31 male.

Have been suffering with symptoms for around 4/5 months now.

Having to push/strain to start to urinate

Feeling of needing a poo but not actually needing to go.

Pain/discomfort when ejactulating mainly in the top/head of the penis

Having to shake a lot to get remaining urine out.

Weak flow at the end

Feeling of dull ache in the perineum ( this seems to be more in the evening )

Head of penis feels sensitive/ dry/ sore

Sometimes stinging when urinating.

Feeling of urine in the urethra going along sometime but nothing comes out.

My first symptom was the discomfort when ejaculating when I first though this doesn’t feel normal then the urinary problems started to appear later on and the dull ache etc.

So far I have had a prostate examination which felt painful upon the GP touching which they indicated sounded inflamed from my reaction. Said they couldn’t feel anything abnormal though.

Thought it could be Prostatitis so have me a month of Ciproflaxin.

Took urine sample and from dip test there was bacteria present but they didn’t send it off.

Month later I still had Symptoms and felt worse.

Was recommended to be screened for STIs which came back all clear. This included swap and urine sample.

Back to the GP and asked me to do another sample which showed no sign of infection when sent off to Microbiology.

GP then gave me a months worth of another antibiotic (Trimethoprim) and 2 months worth of Naproxen to help with inflammation but this was just before the sample came back confirming no infection.

Has also referred me for ultrasound of all that particular area and then onto urology once the scan has taken place, which currently waiting for appointment.

Very frustrating and debilitating. Put me off from sex because I generally don’t feel great and the thought of discomfort but also just knowing going to the toilet and having to wait until you go.

Definitely sitting down for long periods of time doesn’t feel like it helps and always seems to be worse as the day goes on.

Has anybody experienced same symptoms or similar situation?

     I’m going to post what happened to me after being in the military and carrying  a fungus in my body and on my feet 

    Don’t know where you traveled

    So here is my story

    Was being treated for fungus when a few day gone by my prostate and bladder symptoms started to disappear. To test for it can take weeks and doctors don’t want to culture it that long for some reason    Good luck
