I’ve had Epididymitis, it can be pretty unpleasant & all I can tell you is, it can take awhile for the antibiotics to work. Mine hung around for 3-4 wks, gradually got better. It was many yrs ago & if my memory serves, it was still bothering me just a bit even a few weeks after that as well, but only very minor issues by that time - I still felt some tenderness in the scrotum, but it was tolerable. So be patient - it can take awhile...
Here’s some info on it:
If you don’t start to feel better, you might want to seek out a good Urologist. Good luck & let us know how it goes...
"Acute Epididymitis and Acute Epididymo-orchitis
For infectious cases, it takes two to three days to start feeling better. If you don't, and if the redness doesn't begin to fade, call your provider. Discomfort can last for weeks to months after the full course of antibiotics is taken in some cases. It can take months for the swelling to ease. Rest with the scrotum raised for a day or two helps speed healing."
It doesn't mean you aren't better. Sometimes, it just takes awhile for the pain to go away. :(
Thanks all. All my STI tests (inc mycoplasma) came back neg and they said they dont do any more test. They told me to give it a week then see my GP!
I am experiencing same issue. I have achy pain on my right testicle more pin pointed. It tends to ache more in certain position. I have had Doxyclyclin for 2 weeks but it hasn’t gone away. I wanted to know from anyone who has experienced from epididymitis orchitis....what sort of pain you have? Also how long should it take for it to go away. I would really appreciate any reply
