im 36 and for past couple of weeks I've had problems when urinating...slow to start, weak stream and going regularly. IT is also difficult to "push" it out with any force. I have developed pain in the perinium. I went to doctor yesterday and she took a urine sample. she used the strip and it said it doesn't show bacteria "as such". not sure what she meant by that. She has sent it for a culture bit has given me antibiotics for 2 weeks even though she said there was no bacteria...I don't understand that as surely I shouldn't be taking antibiotics if they won't clear it.
she also did a DRE. ut was tender when she touched the prostate but she said it was fine and smooth. me being the worrier that i am is still worried it could be something worse. she told me to take paracetamol and ibuprofen bit these aren't touching it.
Any advice on pain relief?
how do you cope with the constant toilet urge?
when will the antibiotics start to work? (if they even help at all)
