Urethral discharge and pain/stinging, but all tests negative.
Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am a 29 year old heterosexual male from the U.K.
I had a sexual encounter 2 months ago and I have had the following symptoms from around this time: clear urethral discharge (minimal but still present), stinging at tip of penis and just inside urethra, stinging when passing urine. I received unprotected oral sex, but did not have penetrative sex. There was however, unclothed sexual contact (foreplay) in which the genitals may have come into contact.
I have had two separate examinations in which urine and swab tests were carried out (for chlamydia, gon, urethritis). On both occasions they came back negative. I also had blood tests (for HSV, HIV and syphilis), these also came back negative. I have taken a two week course of doxycycline and a week of metronidazole (not at the same time). My symptoms neither improved, nor subsided with these antibiotics.
I am very anxious about both what is causing this symptoms and if I will be able to get rid of them. Not having a diagnosis is also very frustrating, as I don't know what can be done to move forward. On top of this the symptoms are very uncomfortable.
Do you have an idea as to what could be going on?
