In september i had a UTI thats was not treated with right antibiotc. Anyway now in December i found out from DNA test that its Mycoplasma. The only problem is i have take 12 days of Zythromax in November that should of done the job. Now i have a burning tip penis 24-7 and pain in uretha. Im thinking of going for injection since i know its a bacteria that causing all of this or maybe get Iv but i dont know where to go to get that.
Im ready to do anything... im not rich but i'll spend whatever it take to be healthy!!!

The only thing that help is when i used cipro in the first place for my uti... therefore it cameback with a vengence... Since mycroplasma was found in my DNA (sperm,urine) do you think it might be normal to have microplasma?
The Zithromax did not help...
Ciprofloxacin or any of the fluroquinolone antibiotics are totally dangerous and can permanently disable you. They cause chronic tendon rupture, tendonitis, damage the gut flora (oxilobacter formigenes - which break down oxalates), they affect the DNA and the central nervous system. People have ended up in wheel chairs and with peripheral neuropathy after taking just a few. The damage they do to the immune system is unbelievable. These drugs should be banned but doctors still give them out like sweets - they ignore the dangers. The do not work for prostatitis either!
Another thread about long-term antibiotics. Click here.
So what are my option with a infection? To me its just logic to inject antibiotic... Especially if i know its infection...
Every dr are telling different thing!!! I love my wife and i want expand my family!!! Im in Canada its not logial to go in California even if i know that what i need!!! Meeting uro Curtis Nickel in February!!! Cant wait
Dr just told me it was normal to have mycoplasma in sperm so maybe mycoplasma not my problem!!!
Any suggestion are welcome
My urologist has tried injection treatment to me..following doctor Bahn protocal...and it didn't help me at all, it took me about one full year to recover.
I discussed to another experienced urologist when back in my country and he told that 20 years ago it was common to treat CP with injections but the results were always quite disappointed.
I don't know why it didn't work for me but if it was so efficient this technique would be probably more spread around the urologists treatment against CP.
My advice is that you should not put too much hope to the injections.
In individual cases, a treatment may work. The trick for an untreated patient is to make a fact based assessment of the probability of a treatment working. Individual examples show injections working. They also show them making symptoms worse. One also finds data series as linked here that provide little support for injections.
Question: is the patient's aim "short-term success?" Or durable success?
I can tell you something: if the link posted by Dr AK was available while i was thinking of trying injection treatment, I would probably have decided not to go.
I was telling myself the same thing as you: " Im reading a lot of people who have short term succes with injection" then I decided to go...but it was a big disappointment for me at the end because it made me worse.
Are you sure that bacteria causing your symptom?...I would put it differently: I went to very famous labs in Europe (one in Itlay and one in France) for TRUS examination and based on their reports I decided that injecting the "suspicious areas" might worth a try.
In my opinion it could be interesting (put aside the cost) for you to go in California to see what the doctor thinks about your TRUS scan...then going for injection afterwards is up to you.
