CPPS?: Your second question. Oral sex doesn't cause prostatitis. Even if it started with NGU, no help w/ cipro (ciprofloxacin) is strong evidence you have no infection now. I'm betting on chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS), sometimes called non-bacterial prostatitis but perhaps not really involving the prostate. Google it, read the excellent Wikipedia entry. You'll probably see a lot in common w/ your symptoms.
