Welcome to our Forum.  You do not provide much sexual history so it is difficult to determine whether you have been at risk for STIs of not but from the history you provide, there appears to be little reason for concern about STIs.  Your symptoms became problems for you following your laser procedure and none of the symptoms you describe are particularly worrisome for STIs.   Problems such as shrinking testicles or lack of sexual desire are more likely to be a manifestation of non-infectious problems of the testicle or other hormonal problems than related to STIs.  Further, your treatment with ceftriaxone, doxycycline and levofloxacin would have cured virtually all common bacterial STIs.  My advice is to speak to another doctor, perhaps an endocrinologist about your symptoms.  

In answer to your specific questions:
1.  What I am having now is STD?
No, this problem does not sound like an STI at all.

2.  There is many STDs meet same Symptoms but can any of them not to be treat after all of these antibiotics? If yes, can I get better one?
The antibiotics you have received are very good ones,  There is no reason to seek treatment with other antibiotics.   In fact, this is a distraction which is more likely to delay finding out the answer to your problems than to help.

•3. Since all of my tests were Negative Is there any test can verify if this is an STD or not?
Your negative tests, particularly when considered with your non-STI symptoms and your lack of response to antibiotics strongly suggest this is not an STI.

I hope this comment is helpful.  EWH

Dear Doctor,


I am really Thankful for your time and your answers it is make me really  feel much better but on the other hand still worry since still I have the same symptoms, but excuse me to ask couple of questions:

first of all: the Sexual activities:  the last unprotected sex I had was an anal sex with lady (not active sexually ) "8 months before I start getting the pain" any other experiences was either protect or many years ago"


1- One of the doctors says: since you had an chronic inflammation because of the Infection you had, it can take up to 8 weeks until these symptoms disappear, and suggest playing some sports to speed up the recovery, my question is: with an chronic inflammation cases how long it will take until the symptoms gone after the Antibiotic course "assuming if it was an Infection".

2- Since doctors here still diagnose this as an STD even though all the lab test I did was NEGATIVE, is it helpful if I ask the lady "I had anal sex" with her before to do an STDs test? is it easier to find the STIs on the ladies than men?

Brief answers:

I have no idea what this question means.

2- Since doctors here still diagnose this as an STD even though all the lab test I did was NEGATIVE, is it helpful if I ask the lady "I had anal sex" with her before to do an STDs test? is it easier to find the STIs on the ladies than men?

No, your tests tell you what you need to know. EWH

     *Many pimples around my body and inside my mouth .
     *I have got blood coming out of my throat and mouth "for the blood I went to E.N.T،Gastroenterology doctors and every thing was good in these two areas,

This will be my final response.  The Forum is not meant to answer questions that go on and on.  There is nothing you have mentioned that suggests and STI in any way.

this will end this thread.  EWH
