Discussions that mention prozac

Urology board


i once had epididymas and well its been like 3 weeks or so since i last saw the doctor and he said i was fine. that everything was normal but that it was just me stressing out and not getting enough sleep that had me all messed up. and so they put me on prozac and i had been fine. up until now i had a wetdream without the dream i mean i was in deep sleep. and suddenly i ejaculated and it had me freaked cause i dont know if thats something that should happen considering what i had been thru.

and well now i feel kind of funky down there and it may be due to stressing out cause well its scary as hell and worrysome to have problems in that area. ok twice in one night. now that just seems like too much.

could anything be wrong? i mean is that a possibility or am i just worrying myself sick for no reason.
well i meant if anything could go bad because of the wet dreams. cause i mean i had had trouble sleeping right. and i had epididymidas and well they put me on prozac so i was sleeping fine and you know. i didnt have any wet dreams . cause there are times when i would have them like one each night for a few days or you know along those lines. and well it hadnt happened for a good while so i thought you know. if because of having the wet dreams and ejaculating if that could cause any infection or anything along those lines. cause i mean i think thats what had cause my epididymidas infection in the first place cause i had ejaculated twice from dreams in my sleep. and the next day i was so stressed out and worried. and then two days later i was fine. then the day after i was in a lot of pain. and so yeah i had been on antibiotics and painkillers for a good month pratically and my doctor checked me like over and over. cause i was so worried. cause he said that everything felt and looked fine. and that it could have been another bacteria so he gave me another antibiotic and well i guess just from the stress you know, it got worse. and so i saw him again and he said that it was all in my head haha. and so they gave me prozac and once i left his office . soon after i felt fine. i mean still a bit of discomfort but i was so so relieved.

and well now this happens and well, i mean i dont know, i have no knowledge of wetdreams and orgasms. i just know they occasionally happen. and well i was asking if i could wind up with an infection again or anything severe because of the two wet dreams in one night. and well my scrotum has been tight and hardened the whole morning and afternoon. and like now the testicles have descended and they are really tender. and well like i said i dont know much about this kind of stuff. so thats whats got me worried. because i dont know about these kinds of things. so that had me even more concerned. and well i dunno. i mean i feel fine now cause of the meds i think. you know im much more relaxed and calm. but i dont know if something could possibly be wrong. or if its all in my head. cause i mean two wetdreams in one night. and the first one was without a dream. so the first thing i thought , was that something was wrong since you know i didnt exactly feel an orgasm. i mean all of a sudden i wake up cause of the ejaculation and im like freaked out. since its been a mighty long time since ive had one. i mean there were times before where they were frequent or once in a while. and well so yeah , because it hasnt happened in quite some time. thats what has me worried.


and what i had meant about the wetdream without the dream. was that i was in deep sleep you know. no dreams. just knocked out you know. and then suddenly i feel like this burning sensation at the tip of my penis and i woke up to realize i was ejaculating. and i was like yikes!! and suprised at that. cause i had been without the prozac for like two days and i was fine. then that night i got a refil on my prescribtion so i took one. and the night was just awful. i mean i kept waking up to check myself , hoping that i wouldnt ejaculate again. and then i have an actual wetdream and orgasm and all you know. and well i dont know if thats healthy or not. to you know , twice in one night. i mean it was like maybe 3 hours in between the two. so i was freaked out. and well there was a bit of a dull ache in there. but that could have just been my mind playing tricks on me, because i was worried.
I know that some antidepressants can cause problems with the sex life one being having trouble with orgasms. Prozac is an antidepressant.

You said, "i think thats what had cause my epididymidas infection in the first place cause i had ejaculated twice from dreams in my sleep."

According to the link below, It looks as though it could be possible for ejaculation to cause an infection. You should be under the care of a urologist. The fact that you are still in pain for over a month would concern me. Be careful with the pain meds because they may let you think you are better when you are not. I think you should see a better dr., one who is a urologist. He/she can then help you. When you see a urologist you need to ask questions you are concerned about now matter how embarrassing. They have heard it all.

The link does say...."It is also possible that epididymitis, regardless of age, is caused by the reflux of urine into the epididymitis, or the reflux of semen backwards into the epididymitis. This may cause a chemical inflammation, or may be a mechanism by which germs get into the epididymis."

Did your dr. ever explain what causes epididymidas infections? Did he ever do any cultures to check for bacteria so you get the right antibiotic?

For him telling you it's in your head and putting you on prozac is enough reason to get a new dr. I would not go back to this current one. It seems like he is may be giving you pills that you may not need but I don't know his reasons for giving you prozac. You should have an explanation of the causes of this, why you are put on certain meds and have your mind put at ease about other things. I've had good luck with dr's explaining things to me so I didn't leave confused. Hope this helps. Maybe there are other guys that know more about this that can respons.
The fact you went off of prozac for two days in a row may explain why you had a wet dream then. Maybe your body was playing catch up since being on prozac may cause your body to hold back from them. I wouldn't worry about having wet dreams anymore. Just enjoy them because I've heard that other problems can occur by NOT having ejaculations. Maybe your body is trying to keep itself healthy in another way but if you have reflux of fluid maybe the urologist can recommend something different.Try not to get stressed out and just get an appointment with a urologist. Get some recommendations from friends or another trusted dr. If no luck there try calling a local hospital for some recommendations. Good luck.

well as of now i checked and my testicles seem fine. you know they are in allignment and they have descended basically. and when i had epididymidas i knew that i had it because if i would raise the left testicle like not even tap it but you know just barely. then i would get this pain or burning sensation. and well thats how i have checked. to make sure there is no inflammation. i took an alleve and my prozac earlier in the afternoon.and i have been a bit more calm. and well it was because my testicles hadnt descended , that i was worried. cause i was like well its been like that since the last ejaculation. so i was like man something must be going on. but as of now i feel fine. a little discomfort but i dunno. im eager to see my doctor again just to get checked.


well yeah i did some reasearch on the infection and read just as you mention. and well the first time my left testicle was out of allignment i mean it was just straight up. you know. and well they are always at an angle. you know. so that had me so damn scared. cause it looked as if the left testicle was pushed back rather than be at an angle like the other. and well thats what i was afraid of happening this time. but so far it looks like normal.


well im not in pain. well i have been having a little discomfort since last night when this all happened. but i mean for like the 2 weeks that ive been on the prozac ive felt normal and fine. sometimes i would feel like something could be wrong, but i thought nah its all in my head. cause really im a wuss when it comes to this kind of thing. and well i hadnt had any other symptoms like a burning sensation or an irritation while urinating or anything like that. and well yeah i mean when i had the infection for the 3rd week and was just put on the other anti-biotics i was so worried, cause i thought you know my doctor said everything was fine , that he felt everything was normal. so i went home still freaked cause i just thought something was wrong and he didnt realize it. so the first day on the new antibiotic i was fine. then the next day i was so freaking out. just out of tension and stress over missing out on school , getting behind. and the infection of course. and so i saw the doctor again. and he was like alright. but the reason why i wanted to see him was , cause i was really scared. so he felt everything again. and he was like theres no lumps, nothing is swollen, and he tugged and pinched and you know i was in no pain. and by that time it was like this burning sensation , and well i didnt have that symptom before. so i was just a nervous wreck. and once he gave me that ok , saying its cause of my lack of sleep and all. and well yeah since i had this thing, i had trouble sleeping. cause i was scared of course.
and well im not on any painkillers or anti-biotics just my prozac which is a very mild dose. so theres not too much of an effect from it. so i thought well ok , itll take about a week for these little things to kick in . so i thought hey why not. and so he saw me a week later from that visit . and i was more or less ok. and he didnt check me again. cause you know i was fine. and i still had plenty of anti-biotics left for like 4 more days or so . so that had me confident and he said to stay on the prozac for 2 or 3 months more. and then he will see me again to see how i am. cause my mom and dad have high blood pressure and stuff like that. and well i think i got the worryness from them.


well see i had been to the ER cause this same infection happened over a year ago. but i had infected my left testicle and well i hadnt realized till i was in pain. so you know i went they saw me and more or less explained what i had. you know that it was a bacterial infection. and they werent too specific other than that. and so yea after 3 weeks i was a ok again. and still worried that it might come back cause they told me then , that there is a chance it could come back shortly after it goes away. and it didnt. up until about a month ago this year. so i was like why does this happen to me. and well i had the two ejaculations and yeah a few days later i demanded to be taken to the ER and i was diagnosed by the same thing by a practicion and a surgeon. and well yeah. i have been seeing my doctor since. like 4 times since the visit to the ER.

and thats about as much of an explanation as i got. of course this time around it was just the epididymas not the testicle. so it was caught in time before it got worse. and yes at the ER they took a urine sample and said that it was fine and that my blood work came out clean. and then the last visit i had with my doctor he took a urine sample and said that , that came out clean too.

and first at the ER they prescribe Cipro for me and thats not what i had taken the year before. so i was a little put off by that. cause the other worked out great the first time around. so when i saw my doctor he gave me doxycycline or however you spell it. and soon enough about a week later i was fine. but still stressed. cause well i mean its traumatizing to have something like that happen to a guy.

and he has told me to see a urologist if im still worried to the point that i cant do my daily activities. and well i mean just getting the OK from him , had me relieved. but i still want to see a urologist sometime this year. just to see whats going on.
yeah thats what i was saying that if thats normal since i was off the prozac for a couple of days.

what do you mean by fluid? i mean its just been semen. doesnt look unusual. shortly after the ejaculation i have to urinate and i guess that flushes it all out of me.

and there is one urologist in particular that we know about. to go see. just that im tied up with exams from now till the end of next week. then its the christmas break. so hopefully i will be ok till then. if i feel worse tomorrow. then for sure im gonna go see that urologist.

but like i said , when i worry... i WORRY! haha. i mean i get freaked out and always think the worst case scenario. cause i dont know whats going on. so yeah thats probably why i was put on the prozac. which is very mild so its not the strong stuff. and well really there isnt much of a difference wether i take them or not. just that i myself feel better. as in thinking that i will be safer taking the prozac.

You may want to try and get an appointment set up before you run into an emergency. Urologist specialize in this area so they are probably a LOT better than going to your regular dr. That way you won't have to worry about missing school if you get worse. My urologist will see me for recurrent infections and I don't have to have an active infection going on at the time. Sometimes it can take awhile to get in with a good urologist. I've heard that two or three months is sometimes normal for waiting to get in. I was lucky that I only had to wait two weeks and most recently one week. The original dr. I tried to get in with had a two month waiting list and they offered me an appointment with a brand new dr. there. I am glad I took it because he is awesome and I don't have to wait very long to get in if I need to. If your lucky they may be able to get you in within the week. You can always schedule it for after you get out of school for the day or during Christmas break. Remember most offices are open till 5pm.

You do have your plate full with stuff. Hang in there. As for the antibiotics, sometimes it takes a different antibiotic to clear up an infection than what you had before. If you had the same antibiotic within a time period, the same thing you had before may not be the right thing for you at another time. Cipro is a very powerful antibiotic. You were right to go to the E.R. I can't imagine how much pain that is.

When you said that they told you your urine was clean did they actually do a culture? This takes 24 hours to get the results and can tell them what antibiotic works best to take care of the infection. I've had an experience where a urologist office told me that my child's urine was clean but my child was still suffering from symptoms. I immediately took her back to the primary dr. where they did a culture and she tested positive for infection. I never went back to that urologist. You kind of have to be your own advocate and write down things. If you have questions to ask write them down so you don't forget later. I always make a list of questions no matter how small or sometimes I forget. It helps the appointment go by easier. It's not fun laying there while you are being examined trying to think of what you were going to aks and then walk out of there thinking "I forgot to ask this!" Try not to dwell on long details of what you go through with stress that's not related to your problem and say what your concerns about your problem are. Make a list something like this but with your own concerns....This is just an example
1. What causes this?
2. I've been worried and stressed out a lot about this that I'm having problems focusing on school or other things.
3. Is there any danger of orgasms causing more problems with this? What about nocturnal emissions?
4. Is there anything you recommend for me that hasn't been done yet by my primary dr?
5. Are the current medications appropriate for me?
6. What medication are you giving me and what will it do and why this one rather than something else?
7. Could this problem affect my fertility later on?
8. When can I expect this to clear up?
9. What should I do if I continue to feel symptoms or are not better. Should I come back to see you?


Yes when I said fluid I meant semen. I was trying to think of a better word to use. Sorry.
well right now i feel normal again. i mean im calm im relaxed. im at ease. the discomfort has practically gone away. its only when i think about it, that it winds up feeling like a symptom. but yes i will see a urologist hopefully by this month. cause next year i will have an appointment with my doctor. cause he wants to see how im doing with the prozac and of course he wont do it over the phone, he has to have me there. but id feel better going to a urologist , i feel like im a wierdo for being so worried. when really its probably nothing. '

and yeah im glad i went to the ER that one time. i mean my mom was like nah its just nerves, nothings wrong with you. and it wasnt till i demanded to be taken. and said either you take me or im gonna find some way to get over there. and yeah once they told her i had what i had again. thats when finally she like felt bad and just started to pay attention to what i was going thru.

but yeah if im in pain in that area , i wont be embarassed to say take me to the ER. and both times it happened on a sunday so our doctor was closed . so you know its just straight to the ER. and well its time consuming to be there. cause youre there for like 3 hours mostly in waiting. and anyways yeah..

not to have you think that id be embarassed to say im feeling wierd. even if im not sure. but i wanted some insight on this sort of thing. cause well im not sexually active. and even so, im having problems such as getting infections in this area. so thats what has me put off by it.

but i appreciate your views and opinions on this. i mean its hard to find someone who can relate or has some actual knowledge on how this kind of thing works. and well im a teenager. so you know it seems peculiar to be young and have these kinds of problems.
