Hello
Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that your boy friend has Epididymo Orchitis and has been taking antibiotics since 3 days.
Normally it take s 3 weeks to recover completely from Orchitis. You can take anti inflammatory medicines along with antibiotics to get quick results.
Do not worry It will not affect his fertility in future.
Avoid unprotected sex and getting UTI to prevent from recurrence.
