It sounds like you should go to the doctor for an evaluation. This could be a sexually transmitted disease or a urinary tract infection. Both of which can be easily treated with antibiotics.

I advise to to avoid sex until tested at your doctors office and also to check with any of your sexual partners if they had any symptoms.

I highly doubt it is an std... how quickly would that show up if it was im talking months since any contact and even that was only oral... I am experiencing slight tightness in the testicle area also... This is kind of concerning me should it?
Health Professional: Amy, Nurse (RN) replied 10 years ago
STD's in men often times have no symptoms or may have a delayed response, so this would not be unusual. Any kind of testicle pain is concerning. You may also have something called epididamitis which is also easily treated with antibiotics. You really need to go to the doctor for an evaluation and treatment.

Thanks very much. I did go to the Doctor and she did a urine analysis that showed an infection. She seems to think a UTI or bladder infection or possibly a prostate infection. She prescribed Cypro i believe. Does that make sense or should i worry further?

Urinary tract infections do produce symptoms such as you describe, and Cipro in one of the preferred medication.

Last question... if it showed up on a urine test right away it probably isn't an std right....????? Please say yes cause it was a 1 time stupid thing 2 months ago.

Thanks again
Health Professional: Family Physician, Doctor (MD) replied 10 years ago
I would like to reassure you, HOWEVER, if you had an unprotected sexual encounter 2 months ago, you should be tested for STD's including HIV and chlamydia since these STD's can be completely asymptomatic.

The symptoms you are experiencing are indeed likely to be related to the urinary tract infection - but you do need tested.

Reply to Family Physician's Post: Ok i feel a bit better. Like i mentioned above it was a 1 time deal and it was oral not intercourse. It was unprotected however i didnt see any sores on her or me. Was dumb and will never happed again. She also claimed to have been tested. Like i said dumb anyhow. Will the urine analysis that the doctor is sending to the lab for further tests show if it is a uti or whatever else?
Health Professional: Family Physician, Doctor (MD) replied 10 years ago
NO - a simple urinalysis and culture will NOT exclude STD's. You need to speak with your doctor about this incident, and request specific testing for STD's

Is it possible that an std or something is what showed the infection on the test or is it fairly likely that it is the uti or prostate infection.... (my brother had a prostate infection 3 weeks ago and had all the same symptoms im having.

It is far, far more likely that a UTI or prostate infection caused the urine test to be positive for bacteria. You should still ask your MD for STD testing, but this particular problem is more likely urinary or prostate given the circumstances.

Prostatitis can be caused by a number of different microorganisms - primarily the same ones responsible for urinary tract infections - although chlamydia may also cause this condition.

I suspect that your symptoms are related to the UTI that has been treated - HOWEVER, you still need screened for STD as a precaution.

After the urine analysis went to the lab it has I am now told I do not have a bladder infection. What does this mean for me? I have been having a slight bit of pain around my kidneys and lower back? I still have discomfort in the area of my prostate and have a frequent urge to urinate. This all started after a night of heavy drinking could that be the cause. My doctor is away for 2 weeks and this is really concerning me. I will get tested but I am very worried. Would the urine analysis at the lab have shown if it were certain sti's? or what could be the cause of the initial test showing infection and the lab showing none?

Health Professional: Family Physician, Doctor (MD) replied 10 years ago
The initial test likelly showed an increased number of white blood cells (WBC) in the urine - suggesting an infection. Sometimes, the bacteria are difficult to grow - particularly if the infection is in prostate.

I would suggest continuing the antibiotic as prescribed. If your symptoms do not start to improve within 3-4 days, then you should get rechecked.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
