Epididymitis is treated with prescription antibiotics. It is important to take all your medications as directed. If you miss any doses, the infection may not be cured. See your health care provider if this happens, or if you still have symptoms a week after starting treatment.
It is important to not have sex (even with a condom) for 10 days after starting treatment. If you do have sex during this time, you could pass the infection to your sexual partner or get it again. If this happens, talk to your health care provider.
