Re comments in private message: "Puffy meatus & slight irritation" do not qualify for diagnosis of NGU. Neither does a single episode of 7 WBC by urethral swab; probably everybody has that many PMNs sometimes. This isn't an infection and almost certainly not caused by the oral sex event a year ago. No point in further testing or treatment. Just live with it; no harm will come to you or partners.
