No need: As discussed previously, your chlamydia PCR test probably was falsely positive and chlamydia doesn't cause prostatitis.

Been having epididymitis for 2 months. Not chlamydia and urine cultures come back negative. Already took doxycycline, cipro (ciprofloxacin) and Zithro. What is it?
Doubt epididymitis: Epididymitis doesn't persist for 2 months. It causes enlargement and tenderness of a single testicle, almost never both; and doesn't cause ongoing testicular pain for this long. I doubt you have epididymitis. Non-response to those antibiotics is strong evidence you have no infection of any kind. Suspect chronic pelvic pain syndrome (see excellent Wikipedia article). Nothing harmful! Good luck. ...Read more

Would a culture test to check for gonorrhea also show chlamydia if it were present? I had a test and gonorrhea was neg but it didnt mention chalamydia
Chlamydia test: A culture test for gonorrhea will only check for gonorrhea; it won't show chlamydia even if you have it. It's not clear why you were tested for just one STI, not all of them. Chlamydia is VERY common in NZ. There's a simple test that checks for both gonorrhoea and chlamydia on the same sample; usually urine for men. Suggest you ask your doc for this chlamydia test if you've not had one. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

After a positive chlamydia test, i took 1mg of azithromycin as prescribed. A culture retest after exactly a week and came back positive. Why is that?
Wait a little: According to the cdc the correct dose of Azithromycin for chlamydia is 1 gram (or Doxycycline 100 mg twice a day for one week). Most chlamydia tests detect bacterial dna, which may take 3 or 4 weeks to clear after the infection is treated. If you took your medicine and did not get reinfected, repeat the chlamydia test in a month. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
