Customer Question
Actually yes Doctor's Assistant:...

Actually yes

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Is this confidential

Doctor's Assistant: We keep all your personally identifiable information confidential and even have people that double check to make sure something doesn't slip through. Your question goes out to the Doctor and then gets published with the answer to help others with similar problems.

I have pain in the back of both my testicals

Doctor's Assistant: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Constant dull pain

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had unprotected sex about 10 weeks ago. I went to doctor and they said it might be epididimitis, but usually that only brings pain into one testical.

im worried that it could be chlamydia
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
but i never showed any symptoms
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
but i read online that that is not too uncommon to not show any symptoms
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 2 months ago

Even if it were the doxycycline would have covered it so I see no reason to worry

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
it started about a week ago, right after i masterbated a few times in a row and i thought i might've just hurt them or something. now i feel the pain especially after i orgasm
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
would a 10 day prescription of 100mg twice a day be sufficient
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
how common is it for it to show up 2 months after sex and have with epididimitits
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
how common is it for it to cause pain in both, instead of the normal of just one testical
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 2 months ago

Chlamydia can cause epididymitis but a ten day course of doxycycline would still cover it

And you can get it in both testicles

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
what are other causes of epididimitis, is it possible for it to be caused from something else
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
i am visiting a girl who i would have sex with in 3 days so
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
can excessive masterbation cause a tube to get clogged or infected
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 2 months ago

Gonorrhea can also cause it

But excessive masturbation can cause testicle pain too

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
is there such thing as an instant chlamyidia test
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
where i could get results back within a day
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
how common is it for chlaymidia for not show any symptoms for 2 months
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 2 months ago

Either a urine or a urethral swab test would take about two days for results

But in a man it would be very rare to have chlamydia without any symptoms

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
i had a standard urine test and it showed no leukocytes
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
but no chlymidia test
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
that rules out uti but can it rule out chlymidai
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 2 months ago

I'm not sure exactly what your concern is at this point?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
because i am seeing my girlfriend in 3 days and i need to know if i can have sex or if i could possibly give her an stink
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 2 months ago

Yes you can have sex with her

If you had chlamydia it was covered with the doxycycline

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.
