Question: Hi there,
Been treated for Gonorrhea like sympptoms for 23 days now. In order of treatment: Took levaquin (5 days) Doxy (300mg/day for 10 days) flagyl (2mg dose one time) azithromyacin (1mg dose 8 days ago) a shot of ceftraxone (250mg 7 days ago) and now cipro (2x day 5 days ago). Still have burning when I pee, pain in testicles. Docs dont know what it is. Urinalaysis, herpes swab and gonoreah, chlymidia all negative. Please help? The pain in my testicles is the worst symptom. I am also worried I will pass on whatever I have to my partner, so we have not been having sex. This was contracted after having sex with someone outside my relationship, so there is a good deal of anxiety and guilt associated with symptoms.

Brief Answer:
Detailed clinical exam from an expert will help.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
Coming directly to the issue:
Do get a consultation from a urologist and get a detailed history taking and physical examination done. Because many a times non infectious etiology result in similar complain. There might be an association of a viral infection though.
If you can tell me how the diagnosis of Gonorrhoea was made, that might help me understand the problem better. Was it laboratory proven?
A colour doppler of of testes and an ultrasound of abdomen with special focus on kidney and urinary tract may help.
I don't think presence of any more pathogenic bacteria in your urinary tract, after looking in to your antibiotic ingestion history. So practice of a safe sex with your partner may be considered.

However my sincere advice to you will be to always wear barrier protection, whenever practicing sexual activity with commercial sex workers.

Please get back to me, if you want more. I will be happy to help.
All the best.

doctor1 MD

I think I may have contracted Gonorrhea as i am having a slight itching/burning towards the end of my penis. I am in a very remote location and only had 400mg of Cefixime with me which i took this morning on an empty stomach. I have plenty of Cipro though and could take that for multiple weeks if need be. If the single dose of Cefixime does not cure this could i get on the cipro right after to see if this worked to kill the bacteria ?

I have lately started noticing small quantities of a clear, sticky discharge (resembling precum) when I squeeze the head of my penis. This discharge is seen occasionally during the day, but is almost always present before I pass the first urine of the morning, and often after the first urine too). Recently I started having a feverish feeling (no fever) together with a wierd feeling of chills. Saw a doctor and on his advice, underwent a full STD panel, including blood, gram stain and urine culture tests. All tests came back negative, except the gram-stain of the urethral swab which indicated no gram-negative bacilli found, many pus cells seen. Laterly the urine culture indicated negative result for gonorrhea . My doctor still suspected a gonnorheal infection and gave me a shot of anti-biotics injection and a single dose of oral anti-biotics (4 x 250mg). Soon after, the feeling of fever, chills and general unwellness went away. However, two weeks later, the discharge is still present. My questions are as follows: (a) If the gram-stain indicates absence of gram-negative bacilli and the urine culture also indicates normal results, can the pus cells seen in the gram-stain still indicate a gonorrheal infection? (b) How accurate are the blood and urine tests for Chlamydia? Any chance these tests might have missed Chlamydia? (c) If gonorrhea and chlamydia are definitely ruled out, what do the pus calls seen in the gram-stain of the urethral swab then indicate? Is this prostatitis? (d) If this is prostatitis, can I infect my sex partner? Occasionally, I also feel some pain/pressure in the perenium area, especially when I have not had an ejaculation for several days or when I push too hard to pass stool. When this happens, I normally pass a drop or two of a white, cloudy discharge together with urine. The pain in the perenium normally goes away after ejaculation. This happens once or twice a year. Talking of sex, I have not had vaginal or anal sex with anybody except my loyal wife for the last 10 years. However, I did receive an uncovered BJ from a massage therapist about one year back, and have lately frequented massage parlours where the massage therapist would normally massage my anus and perenium area with oil before giving me an uncovered handjob.
