I had protected sex with an unknown woman around 2 weeks ago.after 2 days the head of the pennies started to burn and there was slight pain in my testicles.The burning increased day by day.
I consulted a urologist and he told me to take OFLUX 200mg for 5 days twice a day.
Before taking this tablet i had a blood test,urine count and urine culture done.
The urine culture test were negative.
After 5 days seeing my reports the doctor told me to stop the medicine.

In between i had severe lower back pain which a ortho doctor told me to be slight slip disc for which i am taking medicine and m feeling better.

Now its been 3 days since my 5 day medication of oflux 200 is over.Suddenly today the burning sensation started.Took one oflux tablet after the burning sensation started.

what do u think is the problem over here?.
Should i continue taking oflux and if yes then for how many days more?.
Can the lower back pain be anywhere related to this infection?
Is it a STD?

Brief Answer:
It is not an STI, all investigations are negative

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

After going through your history and symptoms I can understand your concern, it dose not look like any sexually transmitted infection (STI) as there is no discharge from urethral opening and all your investigations like blood examination, urine examination and urine culture are negative.

It looks like some injury to the urethral mucosa which is causing all these symptoms and it should subside with the antibiotic prescribed by your doctor. I would suggest you to continue the same antibiotics for three more days. If the symptoms are not improving I would suggest you to undergo blood culture and drug susceptibility.

The lower back pain is unrelated to your present symptoms, which should be managed as advised by your orthopedic surgeon.

Thank you.

As stated by you m taking the oflox tablet.Also there is continuous urge to urinate.
On what occasion does that happen?.

Brief Answer:
It may be irritation of the urethra and the injury to the urethral meatus.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the follow up query,

There are many conditions for your symptoms like infection any where in the urinary tract like kidneys, ureter, urinary bladder and the urethra but the lab investigations are negative for the infection.

It may be due to over active urinary bladder, irritation of the urethra and the injury to the urethral meatus.

The symptoms should subside in another two or three days with the antibiotic Oflox.

Thank you.

I consulted my doctor today regarding the pain.He told me to take ofllox for another 5 days of which 2 days are already over and things should be sorted out.
There was also a slight inflammation on the tip of pennis from day 1.For which he told its a mild redness and told me to take Lanol ER for 5 days after dinner and that wld sort the problem.

Brief Answer:
I Hope it will settle down in few days

Detailed Answer:
It is my pleasure to answer your follow up query,

As your doctor has advised you to continue the same antibiotic for another five days after complete examination and evaluation, I hope every thing will settle down in fed days.

The Tab Lanol ER helps to reduce the pain and redness at the tip of penis. In addition to this I would suggest you to keep that area clean and dry, which will fasten the process of recovery.

Thank you.
