If you have been diagnosed with prostatitis, please tell us your story: age, duration of symptoms, treatments, results, and the like.
I'm 21 years old, male, studying engineering. I eat very healthy food, do excersise and have no previous history of serious illness. I'm having problems with prostatitis. It all started 2 years ago. I only felt a small pressure around my left testicle. I did a lot of tests and went to a lot of doctors and they found out that I have a very small varicocele and most of them said surgery is not necessary. I did urethral swab 6 times for chlamydia, plasmids etc., I gave urine and semen countless times during these 2 years and had rectal scope. Everything was fine except E. Colli and Enterococcus spp. in my semen. I was taking variety antibiotics for months. After my semen was tested negative for bacteria I was fine for a short period of time but E. Colli returned. I cured it again by taking antibiotics for almost half a year with pauses after every month. Now I have enterococcus spp. again in my semen and I'm very nervous about it. This time the only difference was I had to go to toilet 2 times per night (which I never did before) and that happened for a few nights and stopped (now I'm back to normal without having to wake up). Thats what made me go to doctor to get me tested again. I never felt any symptoms except small pressure around my left testicle that is supposed to be varicocele. I never had fever, pain, weird smell in urine or anything. My semen tests also show low count of white blood cells (one urologist told me that I don't have a real infection according to white blood cells).
