There are definitely some sexual side effects associated with Prostatitis.
- I'm currently undergoing treatment for it (2 months antibiotic course)
- Already completed a 20 day course just a week before for the same thing. Should have cleared that up then itself.
- Penis is not sensitive to touch
- Does not get hard, I'm able to ejaculate without attaining an erection
- There is a strange sensation while ejaculation. Not really burning but a discomfort
- There is no morning wood.
I have started believing God does not want me to be ok below the belt
. I was diagnosed with epididymorchitis in March this year. This came from unprotected sexual contact (second time in my life - I am 32). The epididymorchitis cleared after 1.5 months of antibiotics. However, it left some fluid behind in the testicles which developed in to an epididymal cyst. I carry this around in my left testicle. A general sense of discomfort in the groin continued and I sought more advice. Meanwhile a KUB scan confirmed that I also have something called as a ureterocele in the urinary bladder.
3 Urologists later I was advised an operation to remove the ureterocele and aspirate the cyst (fancy term for injecting out the fluid), which I underwent. The fluid in most cases and mine, just came back anyway and the ureterocele was removed.
However now after experiencing discomfort again, I went to my uro who said that the prostatitis has recurred. What I feel is listed above. Besides the sexual problems, there is a constant feeling of tightness in the groin area (like wearing very tight underwear). The testicles are normally shrunken and tense - this is the feeling I have.
The overall feeling that I now have is that the operations I went through were not really required. Surgeons being surgeons, will normally advise them anyway because that's how they make their money. My feeling is that I had a case of prostatitis which from the start, right around the time when I contacted the epididymorchitis. That was the one thing causing the pain (especially while sitting) and the general swelling in the testicle which I've had is also a common thing with prostatitis, I understand.
I just hope this thing goes away soon for good.
