Doctor insights on: Klebsiella oxytoca bacteria in semen
Diagnosed with chronic bacterial prostatitis after klebsiella found in semen. Took a 6 week course of cipro (ciprofloxacin). klebsiellia gone but symptoms remain why?
Yes: Orchitis, inflammation of the testicles, usually results from the spread of infection from the epididymis, and under such circumstances it would not be unusual to see the causative agents appear in the semen, but it is the urine which is generally cultured, and under those circumstances those cultures may be positive. ...Read more
I took meds for prostatitis & I am feeling fine. Yesterday, I ejaculated some drops of semen went to anus. Can I get bacteria if semen goes to anus?
Fistula possible: To confirm- you have a chronic prostatitis for which you take abx. When you ejaculate, semen comes out of your anus- if this is the case, you need to see a urologist, to determine if you have a fistula. Normally, there is NO opening between the anus and your prostate; a chronic prostate infection could have caused the opening, or else the opening was present and is now infecting the prostate. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
It may but...: It depends on the resistance profile of specific strain of klebsiella. Many strains acquired in the 'community' are very sensitive to almost all antimicrobials except penicillin and Ampicillin and certainly sensitive to piperacillin/tazobactam. However, especially when acquired in a hospital, klebsiella can be quite resistant to therapy including pip/tazobactam. ...Read more

Aerobic semen culture showed enterococcus. Anaerobic culture was clear of bacteria. Does it mean an enterococcus species easier to be treated?
No: Aerobic means it grows in oxygen. Anaerobic means the bacteria grow in the absence of oxygen. Whether bacteria are aerobic or anaerobic does not determine how hard those bacteria are to treat. That is determined by whether we have readily available antibiotics capable of killing them. ...Read more

After c/s of my semen is infected by klebsiella pneumoniae. Is it related with c.trachomatis or different infection? Is it curable?
Klebsiella bacteria found in sperm sample. Prescribed ciprofloxacin for 6 weeks. 2 weeks in & no change in symptoms. When will this start to work?
My dr ordered a culture of my urine and a complete semen analysis. Does this check for all bacteria and infections or would a semen culture be helpful also? Or is it not needed with the first two tests?
Depends: You do not state the reason for the study but i'll assume a prostate problem. A regular urine culture checks for common bacteria but not gonorrhea or chlamydia if a std might be an issue. A semin analysis would normally examine the components and ratio of active to inactive sperm. If your doc ordered the original culture with a std in mind, s/he probably has all needed info. You could ask. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diagnosed with klebsiella bacteria in sperm. Predcribed ciprofloxacin. Will this clear it up? Year of pain in my penis due to this. What causes it?
Klebsiella: This story is strange. Not sure who cultures semen, but this may be a uti, and if it is you need a detailed evaluation by a urologist. Even if you respond to Ciprofloxacin treatment you need further evaluation, because it is very rare for a man to get UTI without some underlying issues, and penis pain just makes it more urgent for you to see someone and get better. ...Read more
