Hi,

For 2 months now, i have been fighting what the doctors think is a UTI. A quick background is i am 31 years old and i had sex with my fiance for the first time, unprotected. She dont have anything, and i didnt have anything. THen i started to burn when i would urinate or ejaculate. The tip of my penis would be red and irritated. And my skin on penis would get red and irritated.

I was prescribed an antibioctic and was tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia which both came back negative. THen was prescribed another antibiotic. Nothing happened. THen i thought that i might have a yeast infection. I bought a creme and got prescribed a pill for that. Nothing happened. Now im on my 4th antibiotic and i am still burning after i urinate and ejaculate. I stopped having sex with my fiance to see if it would stop hurting but its not. She is going to the doc tomorrow for test but she has no symptoms of anything. I just took a pee test for UTI and it was purple with 125++ for white blood cells in urine.

What else could this be? I am always burning down there and it is so hard to keep focused through the day when i am always burning. Please help.

Other side notes is i completely changed my diet. no deep fried foods, no sodas, just water, stopped drinking caffeine energy drinks, etc. I exercise very regularly, weight lifting, cardio, etc.

I took antibiotics for over a month trying to get rid of a UTI and ended up with a serious infection called C-Difficile, which then I delt with for 2years it is absolutely miserable. The antibiotics kill off all the good bacteria in your gut leaving c-diff to take over which can make you very ill! So eat yogurt, and take a probiotic! :)

  • update:My fiance went to the doctor for a check up this morning. All tests were negative. Had the normal amount of yeast and white blood cells in urine. So that rules out a yeast infection for sure. I am going in for a prostate exam next week to see if i have an infection of the prostate.
