Hello doctor,

I had a sexual encounter before 11 days. She gave me only a hand release and used her finger on my prostate with a glove on. After a day, I started urinating extremely and frequently. No burning with urination but after urinating, there is a slight burning sensation in my penis, and outside of my anus. This burning occurs mainly while sitting down. I do not frequently urinate anymore, but I still have the slight burning sensation after urinating and while sitting. I got tested for STD, and it was negative. My doctor prescribed me Doxycycline before three days. There is no noticeable difference yet.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have acute prostatitis. This could be due to various reasons including retrograde ejaculation, delayed hypersensitivity to the gloves used or bacterial infection. Was your semen or urine tested for a culture?

Thank you doctor,

No, I do not think so. I had my urine tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea. Will the Doxycycline help with this?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

No Doxycycline does not cover it. You need better gram-negative coverage. You can get benefit from Ciprofloxacin and Ibuprofen at least, to begin with.

Thank you doctor,

Is this contagious?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Acute prostatitis is usually caused by a sexually transmitted disease bacteria or by a bacteria which causes urinary tract infection. It appears that you do not have an STD as you were recently tested negative. This leaves us with a UTI causing bacteria which is not contagious. However, I will not completely rule out the possibility of a delayed allergic reaction. I would suggest that you start taking at least 600 mg of Ibuprofen every eight hours if your kidney function is normal.

Thank you doctor,

Do you think is it necessary that I should go and get a different antibiotic? Or finish my cycle of Doxycycline?

Hello,

Try the Ibuprofen for at least three days. Meanwhile, the Doxycycline will also finish and see how you feel. If your symptoms persist, it is a good idea for you to consult a urologist or at least get a urine culture or semen analysis.
