| | Urethra problems
In January I was diagnosed with Gonorrhea and treated with Cipro. After diagnosis I stopped having sex, yet continued to masterbate.
By the end of Febrary, I was still having problems with an irritated urethra and some discharge. The doctor dianosed me with prostatitis and prescribed doxycycline. I waited all through March for it to heal up, masterbating less frequently (and very carefully)after reading on the internet that I could damage the tissue in my penis.
Early April I went back to see the doctor. I wasn't having any discharge, but my urethra was still irritated. He said it would take time to heal and gave me a clean bill of health. I was drinking a pot of coffee a day and masterbating once a week at this point.
April 16 (still no sex whatsoever by this point) I noticed a discharge in my briefs and went to the emergency room, as it was arounf 11pm and I didn't feel like waiting for the morning or returning to the doctor who had been treating me, for that matter. This time, I was diagnosed with urethritis and prescribed cipro once again.
The discharge has ceased, but my urethra goes from looking like it's healing to swelling up slightly. No pain since the 17th, aside from a slight sting at the tip today. I have ceased masterbating all together, cut down on the coffee and only have one beer a week when I visit my parents for dinner. I've been on cipro since the 17th but I'm losing faith in it.
Sorry for such a long story, but I'm losing patience with the whole situation. Question: is there any hope for this poor thing?! Could the answer lie in a yeast infection? No splotches or redness on the outside of my penis, my main problem has been with the opening. Once my cipro runs out and I'm still experiencing problems, what next? Wait to see if it heals or see a urologist right away?
