5 month ago my condom broke when I was penetrating a sex worker. Few minutes’ later i started to have discomforts in the head of my penis that was a Sunday. the next day I went to see a physician, he put me on 7 days of doxycicline, once off 1g of ciprobay and one anti-retroviral for HIV prevention.

After the anti-biotic treatment I was still not fine, the physician asked me to do a Chlamydia blood test witch came back negative and a syphilis blood test that came back negative, we also did a C-reactive test that was normal by then.

He then told me I was fine, I was still not feeling fine. I went to see an urologist who discovered while physically examining me I had a swollen part in my testicles. He put me on a 15 days of ciprobay, 10 days of doxycicline, and 5 days of flagil.
After that treatment i was still not fine and my bladder was inflamed, he didn't realized my bladder was inflamed, he gave another 5 day of doxycicline and ciprobay.

After that I was still not fine, i decided to see another urologist, he then check my prostate and my testicles everything was inflamed.

He prescribed me 1 months of some anti-inflammatory and 10 days of flagyls.

After that treatment i was still not fine.

i did a STD profile including HIV, which came back negative.

i then went to see a different urologists who told she thinks i was fine, even when i was still having discomforts in the head of the penis and some pain in the bladder. We did a full blood count that shoed my neutrophil was low and my CRP was slightly higher.

I took a month off doctors, just to see how things were going to go. I then started to feel lower abdomen pain and pain all over my back, I did a urine culture which came back negative, i went to see a family physician, he checked my prostate and said it was inflamed he prescribed me another 10 days of ciprobay, when i was still not feeling fine he prescribed 20 day of amoclave Bd (it is some penicillin)

Toward the end of that treatment I did prostate sonar it said my prostate is not inflamed, but I am still not feeling well.

i feel sick all over my body, the color on my pelvis is not the same it use to be and things are not fine, my body get itchy, i did a stool test to look for fungal because of the many anti-biotic i took, it says scanty Candida albican.

I need your help in trying to diagnose my problem. Your suggestion will be appreciated.

i went to see a physician few days a go she put me on purmycin for 2 weeks 4 times a day. I am still taking it.

Tell me what test you think I can do to trace m y problem. Any suggestion welcomed.

Thanks for your help.

  • Thank you so much for that link, I did read it and checked the information’s on the lymphogranuloma venereum, the symptoms looks similar to my symptoms and my last 2 chlamydia trachomatis IgG elisa blood test that i did recently were high ( 1.19 for the first one and 1.80 for the second, for a reference range of 0.00-0.89 negative)I will go to see my physician today and discuss with her about this new information I got from you. Thank you again; I really hope this is it. I have a strong feeling this is it, but I will found out soon.

  • Hi,i spoke to my physician about the possible cause of my problem being Chlamydia lymphogranuloma vereum, she said the purmycin she prescribed me is a generic name of everythromycin which treat chlamydia lymphogranuloma vereum. Based on the information I got online, that it take 21 days to treat Chlamydia lymphogranuloma vereum, she extended the treatment to 21 day. Today is the sixth day of the treatment, I am not sure if it is working or not.Yesterday and today I felt bad. Do you think it is too early for me to start judging the treatment? After how many days do you think I should see real changes on the treatment I am taking?
