Many possibilities: Having an abnormal sensation when urinating can have many possible causes. Some possible causes include a urinary tract infection, a vaginal infection in women, urethritis, a kidney stone, a herpes infection, etc. It is important to seek the help of your physician to help delineate the cause.
Dr. Dean Giannone

Think doctor's visit: Could be infection in the urine, or maybe an std. In women, yeast infections can cause discomfort when urinating as well. You should see your doctor - you may need antibiotics or an antifungal, or at least a test on your urine.

Get a urine test: This could well represent a urinary tract infection (most commonly a bladder infection). However it could also be due to other things like a urethral infection, vaginal infection, skin irritation, or some other less common things.

It may be important: This may be a sign of a urinary tract infection or a vaginal infection of you are a woman, or a prostate infection if you are a man. If it burns, and certainly if there is an unusual discharge, then you should have this checked out by your doctor. If it just feels odd, drink more water to dilute the urine and see if this clears it up. If it doesn't, you still may want to have it checked out.
Dr. Visalakshi Vallury

Should be evaluated: Symptoms when urinate such as burning, urgency, increased frequency, odor, incomplete emptying, pressure or odor can be signs of a urinary tract infection or other urinary tract problems. This requires evaluation by your physician.

Yes: Brownish urine may be concentrated meaning that you are not drinking enough water. However, i would recommend calling your doctor's office for a urinalysis to make sure that nothing else more serious is going on.

Can STDs be transmitted through urine?

Dr. Marcus Degraw
Pediatrics 22 years experience
NO: No, transmission of HIV through urine has never been established and is not a risk. Unless, there is significant amount of blood in the urine and you have significant exposure to the bloody urine for a period of time. Other STDs are also highly unlikely to be spread by urine and cannot be spread by toilet seats or other surfaces of fomites or surfaces.
A 21-year-old member asked:

How long should a normal pee take?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in

The short answer is 'a short time'; usually under 10-15 seconds depending upon how much urine you need to eliminate, and depending upon one's gender. Fluid intake, kidney(renal) disease, prostate issues, etc. Can lengthen this time and even cause an obstruction so if there is any alteration of what is "normal" for you then ask your health care provider.
