I had unprotected sex July 2011, and unprotected oral sex in Oct 2012. The symptoms started around 15th March 2013 whereby I had a tingling in the tip of my penis that lasted 2-3 days, i went to see a Doctor who had a look and suspected it was a fungal infection and put me on Terbinafine for 2 weeks. Within days the tingling went. All good until about 23rd April when I started experiencing burning in my urethral tract and urinating very frequently (15 x days) with an uncontrolled dribble at the end. The burning only occurs after urinating and not during and a cold sensation in my scrotum. No discharge or any other symptoms. My wife has had Thrush about 3 times this year but clears up very quickly using Canestan.
I thought I may have Chlamydia so my wife and I both took 1g of Azithromycin on the 28th April. Only a slight improvement and within 3 days my wife got thrush outbreak which cleared up with Canestan. I went to see the Doctor again on the 29th April and he suspected very mild dose of Chlamydia since no discharge. He prescribed 100mg Doxycyline for 7 days and Terbinafine again. Ive just completed the course of Doxy, but there is no improvement and still have a burning sensation after urinating (not during).
On the 29th April, they tested for HIV, Hep, Syphilis and took a urine sample for 3 day culture growth and urine analysis for UTI. All came back Neg. The Doc also checked my prostate which was ok. The Doc still seems to think it is Chlamydia. My wife has not been tested yet but we are not having sex.
Really puzzled and can't seem to get to the bottom of what it is. I have another 1g of Azithromycon and 500g of Cipro and not sure if to take.
In your opinion is this an STD or something else?
Many thanks and look forward to hearing you professional view.
The Doctor checked my prostate by inserting his finger in my rectum and said 'that appears to be fine'. That was the only check he carried out.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using JustAnswer.
Thank you. I will go back to the Doctors. Could this still be an STD?
