Unlikely...: Epididymitis is rarely acquired from oral sex. It could happen due to gonorrhea, but rarely. What are your symptoms? Pain in both testicles is almost never epididymitis, which almost always is one sided, with marked swelling and tenderness. And non-improvement on antibiotics is evidence against infection of any kind. Google "chronic pelvic pain syndrome" and see if it matches your symptoms. ...Read more

Diagnosed with epididymitis but std x 2 and uti tests clear pain persists L testicle and L back. 14 2 x day doxyc prior results. Is it safe to hv sex?
Recheck with doctor: You'll need to ask the doctor or clinic treating you. You're close to the age (35) after which most epididymitis is not an STD. However, most of those have positive UTI tests.

R testicle and low ab pain wk after unpro sex. Doc say epididymitis and gave 10day levaquin. No better had std/UTI tests 6wk later & clear? Is it STD
Prostate? CPPS?: These are atypically mild symptoms for sexually acquired epididymitis. The only STD causes of epididymitis (gonorrhea and chlamydia) should have responded rapidly to levofloxacin and should have had positive tests. My guess is no STD and probably no epididymitis. Maybe prostatitis or chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS)? Happily, these usually are harmless. Keep working with your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more
