Hello all;
I'm having a problem that I'm not sure is serious, but I'm nevertheless a bit worried about.

Every once in a while, after urination, I feel a mild burning around my urethra (I'm uncircumcized, btw). It goes away rather quickly, and usually only happens maybe once every week or two. I've been noticing it more lately, and I think I've had it before (I remember experiencing something similiar when I was little), but I've come to obsess over it lately because I had unprotected sex once four months ago; it was the only time I've ever not used a condom in my entire life, and being a bit of a hypochondriac, I've begun to think I have every STI out there. Has anyone else had anything like this? It's the only symptom of anything I've ever had - no burning during urination, no irritation, no discharge, just a slight burning or tingling sensation occasionally after urination. Help?

  • It could be an STD, but I'd get the urinary tract checked out first. I'm leaning more towards urinary. Could be kidney also or swollen prostate. My hubby had this and it was a closing stricture and prostaititis. Some surgery and antibiotics and he's good to go. But, it got so bad his feet swelled up. So, I'd check in to a urologist. I wouldn't worry about STD's. Just because you had unprotected sex doesn't mean you've contracted anything. Stay positive now. Let up on the caffeine and spicy foods like spagehtti and tomatoe based and see if that helps. Drink plenty of water to help flush out whats going on. In the mean time go see your doc so you can get better soon. It's not an STD. Stop worrying.
