I am 45 years old, for the past 5 years I usually get a case of prostatitis once per year. Just finishing up a round of anti-biotics (levaquin) and my urologist tried a new bph medicine with me (rapaflow). Within 3-4 days of the meds, my symptoms all but left but after a week I experienced diarrhea (witch lasted almost 2 weeks) and also noticed little or now semen in ejaculations. Also, after bowel movements, over the last 4 days, I find myself having to sit and wait for small amounts of urine to pass. No matter how long I wait, I usually find I leak a few drips shortly afterward. Any comments / advice would be appreciated

I've been diagnosed with streptococcus virdan. I've taken several medications such as levaquin, cipro, bactrim, doxycline and many more. The levaquin started working but I quit taking it because I felt better and now I've been having this problem for six years due to the fact I stopped taking my medication. About a year ago, a doctor did a semen culture and I was positive for virdan. He prescribed me penicillin and of course it didn't do anything. Do you have any suggestions of what I need to do because this has been and ongoing process forever
