This sounds like you may have prostatitis. How long did you take the cipro for?

7 days and for some reason my tendon in my leg , after the 7 days that the doctor prescribed the pain in the leg was gone , anyway , what is prostatitis? what about the trichomona?
Urologist: Dr. Y., Urologist replied 2 years ago

Trichomonas is possible but can only be diagnosed by looking at any discharge under the microscope. Prostatitis is a prostate infection that can be caused by bacteria. 7 days is not long enough of an antibiotic course to treat prostatitis. You need a 4-6 week course of an antibiotic. Your doctor should consider switching you to doxycycline if you couldn't tolerate cipro

thanks for that but , how the doctor can find out if i have porstatitis? , and he gave me both (Ciprofloxacin hcl 500mg , and doxycycline ) , is it good to test my girlfriend from trichomonas? and if i have prostatitis can she have it? because its a bateria? , what do you suggest i do?
Urologist: Dr. Y., Urologist replied 2 years ago

Your doctor needs to do a prostate exam and send any fluid that comes out of the urethrha for a culture. Your girlfriend should be tested for all STDs as well. She cannot get prostatitis because women do not have prostates. But she can have bacteria in the vagina that she can spread to you

That was the prostate exam to see if you had signs of prostatitis. I can't tell what he felt. You need to ask your doctor

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.
