I have had like 4 bouts of epididymitis in the past two years and I am tired of it. I don't know what keeps bringing it back or what I can do about it. Does anyone have any ideas? The first time was really painful, subsequent times weren't too bad. This time isn't too bad but it still bugs me and it could very well get worse. It is always on one side. I saw a urologist did a complete workup and I am completely healthy, no stds, no nothing. He scoped out the sac, prostate, even kidneys, etc with ultrasound and there was nothing wrong. I didn't even have any unusual bacteria in pee. The only thing I can think of that is causing it might be my fleshlight but I try to keep it relatively clean and disinfect it regularly with alcohol. I have had sex mostly with one person over the course of this and I wrap it up.
