Antibiotics and STDs

A couple weeks ago I went to the emergency room because the shaft of my penis was swollen. There was no pain, only slight discomfort. The doctor gave me antibiotics and told me to rest. They tested me for a STDs (but they haven’t got back to me yet). They thought it was Chlamydia because I had a slight discharge. The night earlier I went to a party and got into a hot tub. I thought it could have been that but the doctor didn’t think so.

I took antibiotics for 6 days (even though they recommended 8). In two or three days the swelling completely left. This is the embarrassing part: I feel like my testicles have contracted a little. They feel smaller than usual. When I get an erection, it feels weaker at the base of my penis. Also at the base I feel a slight pressure that is similar to soreness but there is not pain. Every couple of days the head of my penis itches and I feel like something is in the head. I also get groin aches that are around my pubic pone. These aches are in the area between my upper thigh and groin. Its a slight ache. My testicles don’t ache—although because I’m considered I think their temperature dropped. My They feel colder than normal. That could just be me thinking about it too much.

Is there a homeopathic remedy I could take? I don ‘t think I have Chlamydia but I think I may have an infection of sorts. The antibiotics made me feel extremely tired and I’m looking for other ways to help myself.
