Hello, I'm very worried about my testicles right now. Well, about a week and a half ago, I started to get this aching pain in my testicles that wouldnt go away. Now it feels like I cant feel them at all, like I've lost almost all sensation and feeling in them. So yesterday, I went to my urologist, who took a urine sample. He told me they found some blood in my urine which indicates a mild infection. So, he put me on antibiotics and motrin to help with the pain. I seem to have lost the ability to get sexually aroused like i use to, and its much harder for me to get an erection if i look at something that would normally get me going. I am able to get erections, I just have to stroke it for a little while and then it gets hard. But still, it doesnt feel very strong like it use to. I'm worried that this infection has caused permanent damage to my testicles, which is affecting my testerone levels, which is affecting my sex drive, which is affecting my ability to get erections. So, I'm just wondering, if the damage is permanent, is there any treatment I can undergo, like medications or low testosterone supplements I can take to increase my low testosterone and help me get my sex drive back and get erections without having to touch just to get one. When I do get an erection, I seem to climax just fine, but theres not much fluid in the ejaculation.

Hi - I remember seeing on the NHS symptoms checker website you can select an option about struggling to achieve an erection after being given medication, you could follow through on there, see if it offers you anything useful. Good luck
