Hi, I would like to request that this question remains anonymous due to the sensitivity of the issue.
I have had intermittent pain in the prostate/testicle area over the last few years. Although my symptoms have improved significantly over time, there is still a little bit of discomfort which tends to return for some time every once in a while.
December, 2009- I was experiencing very little interest in sex, the fluids exerted during ejaculations
were reduced by approximately 50%, and at times 70-80% (it varied significantly.) I didn't let it concern me.
March, 2010- Pain started to emanate from both testicles and the prostate area. At this point, I decided to consult with a general physician. The general physician diagnosed me with prostititus, however, he was unsure if the term "prostititus" was accurate; I didn't have many of the systems associated with prostitius. I didn't, and never had a burning sensation during urination, no blood in the urine
, and no fluid discharge from the penis. At the time of the prostate exam, my prostate appeared to be tender rather than enlarged, and the white blood cells which were collected from the fluid exerted from the prostate during examination were of the norm. I didn't have chlamydia, or gonorrhea at the time (march 2010.) The Doctor prescribed for me to take cipro for two months consequently, this, however, made no difference.
May, 2010- Frustrated, I decided to consult a urologist. The urologist essentially told me the same thing. He said I can take advil for anti-inflammatory purposes if needed. Subsequently afterwards, I went to see the urlologists several times. During the course of this time, my condition had been improving slowly and gradually. The issue seemed to be very intermittent. The amount of fluids discharged during ejaculation were also improving. However, I believe that the levels were never fully restored.
The intermittent nature of the situations continued, however, it was gradually improving.
2012 and the majority of 2013 has been very comfortable, however, I don't believe that the amount of fluids exerted during ejaculations have been fully restored.
August 2012- I was experiencing minor pain in the testicles once again, so I decided to go to the doctor, this time, they performed a ultrasound of the testicles. The results from the ultrasound showed that I had a very small vericocele on my left testicle. According to my general physician, and my urologist, this was fairly common. In fact, the urologist told me that he had a similar one since he was 14.
The symptoms slowly disappeared once again and this time I seem to have been better than I had ever was.
July 2013- Discomfort has once again originated from my testes. My sex drive is essentially normal, however, the amount of fluid discharged during ejaculation has decreased significantly.
I went to the general physician and she told me that everything appears to be fine, and for the record, everything has always appeared to be fine from the begining. No bumps, or swollen testicles. At this point, my main concern is if I will have issues with fertility. The doctors have told me that I shouldn't. However, could you also please give me your opinion? And by some miracle, if you have come across this issue and happen to have a solution to my problem. Thus far, no one happens to have an answer to what this is or what is causing it.
