Is there any discharge from the penis?

Ok. Well this doesn't sound like an STD. It sounds to be more an infection of the urethra called urethritis. If things are getting worse on the cipro, this may be because the bacteria is resistant to it. This is why a urine culture should always be done before starting antibiotics. At this point, your best bet is to go to an urgent care center near you to have a urine culture done to see which antibiotics you need to be switch to. Hope this helps.
