Brief Answer:
Start treatment immediately...

Detailed Answer:
Hi there,

I am sorry for the situation you are in. It is a pity that you didn't take medicine for infected testis. All the symptoms you are having are due to infection your doctor already confirmed to you.

You are too young and unmarried. If you do not treat infection properly, and will suffer of chronic genital infection; then, that will affect your fertility. If infection will be present, spermatozoids won't be produced or be functioning properly.

It is time to get your medications and get treated as prescribed by your doctor.

Wish fast recovery!

Brief Answer:
Not enough... Need further examinations...

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

The blood work and urine analysis are not determining any testes infection. Instead, spermatic/urethral fluid examination and culture and sensitivity testing together with genital ultrasound are determinative for testes infection. You can ask your doctor to get these tests done apart physical examination.

If everything is ok, then, the pain you feel on your testes are not related to infection but inflammation only possibly due to drinking alcohol, smoking, any trauma/injury locally, use of medications or exposure to chemicals.

I advise to take anti-inflammatory drugs (such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen) and elimination of triggering factor (as mentioned earlier).

After a further evaluation and lab tests reports, it will be decided for any specific treatment.

All the best!
Dr.Albana
