Doubt prostatitis: No STD or any infection that might cause prostatitis is possible from such contact. I'm guessing your symptoms are some combination of urinary urgency, bladder discomfort, and/or testicular or low abdominal pain. Most men with such symptoms have genitally focused anxiety--pain from pevlic muscle tension not prostate. That all the antibiotics didn't help is very strong evidence against infection.

For more information, go online and look up chronic pelvic pain syndrome; to start, there's an excellent Wikipedia article, also see information from the Stanford University dept of Urology. Almost certianly you have no infection and further antibiotics won't help. But you can be sure it's nothing dangerous for you or partners. Your symptoms probably will fade once you understand this. Good luck!
