Brief Answer: No harm in delay in treatment for a month. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Welcome back. Epididymitis of STD origin may likely to flare up with short duration. As yours is not likely of STD origin and likely to be due to other causes, it may remain like this for months together. If the nuisance is bearable for you there is no harm in getting treated after a month. There is no much of home remedies for this condition. Drink plenty of fluids and water. That will clear the UTI. Avoid travel in two wheeler and highly jerky vehicles and travel on bad roads which will aggravate your condition. No abstinence from sex is necessary, but protected intercourse is recommended till you get cured completely. Dr S.Murugan
