I am writing in with a lot of hope of getting a useful advice. In September, 2013 I had a sexual contact (anal) with a sex worker post which I got balanitis (Yeast infection, Genital wart, Molluscum papule). The penis felt tired during those days. I got in touch with a dermatologist and he cleared the infections. During same time I tested negative for HIV, Syphilis and HSV.
Things were going well, infections were clearing up when in January, when I woke up in the morning my right testicle was aching - low grade ache. I went to a urologist he prescribed a semen culture and sensitivity test. While I was waiting for the results the ache in the right testicle cleared up and the left testicle started having the similar dull ache. I used to have burning sensation on the scrotum sometimes.
The semen culture came out positive with moderate number of Klebsiella and insignificant number of Enterococcus. I was prescribed antibiotics as per the sensitivity report. The dull ache in the left testicle continued off and on. Sometimes I used to feel alright, sometimes the dull ache would come again. It was not hindering my normal life, other than the fact that I used to feel extremely frustrated when the testicle used to ache.
During the last 6 months I have gone for several tests - 4 ultra sounds/Doppler - all clear, HIV - negative once again, VDRL - negative once again, Chlamydia (done through urine sample) - negative, Examination by a vascular specialist for Varicocele - negative, Urine test - negative (No UTI, no problem in urinating), Semen culture - Negative (done twice after the first test in January).
Since the last 2 months I have been taking - 200 mg Doxycycline + 1000 mg Cipro + 1000 mg Azithromycin + 1g monocef (Ceftriaxome) - everyday to rule out any possibility of an STI.
How the condition has changed in the last 6 months is the frequency of testicular ache in the left testicle has reduced (as it comes and goes) - I feel dull ache in left spermatic cord - some weird sensations in the scrotum on both the sides (can't explain in words). and dull ache in both the knees - No constipation, never had one.
I am still waiting for an accurate diagnosis for the condition (let alone the treatment). I don't even know if this is related to the contact I had in September (after which I did not have any other contact).I am really worried about my fertility as I am still not married.
I would really appreciate if someone can guide me on how to proceed with the condition - which tests can help me in diagnosing the condition.
Please write in, in case you want me to clarify on some point.
Waiting for a reply in anticipation.
