Thanks for your query.

Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that your boyfriend has severe pain while urinating.

He has done his routine Urine test which does not reveal UTI (fever associated with burning?
2) Does he have to strain (Give Pressure) to pass urine?
3) Do you have unprotected sex?
4) Has he done Urine culture?
5) Has he undergone test like Ultrasound scanning of the abdomen to see status of Bladder for infection? If it is not done so far do get it done now as it will provide much information as regards any pathology in Bladder, Prostate etc.

Kindly revert back with information that you have so as me to help to diagnose his problem.

Thanks for feedback.

If he has a culture report, please post the report here using this site's uploader.

If he cannot afford a visit to ER, I would suggest him to visit a free/low cost clinic and get the other test - those I mentioned in my previous reply. Those test will give us a better picture of what he is suffering with.

In the meanwhile, continue to take the antibiotics along with over the counter analgesics like ibuprofen twice a day. Drink plenty of fluids.

Let me know if you need clarifications.
