Not an infection: Many mysteries about NGU from oral sex, but often not true urethritis and not due to bacteria caught from partner. Whatever the original cause, persisting symptoms now despite all those antibiotics is proof that they are not due to infection. Some men just have persistent symptoms, but it's not harmful for affected men or their partners. More abts won't help and I doubt need for any further Rx.
