Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. Sometimes one may have sublinical infections of the genitourinary system which are caused by sexually transmitted infections, which could be undetected by testing. It is important that you go back to your doctor to be retested and start a course of antibiotics to treat this infection. It is possible that this infection has affected to your testes, and surrounding structures, which would make it a bit more difficult to treat. Please seek medical attention immediately.
