A 28-year-old male asked:
Hello, what if you sit in urine that you just urinated out and the urine gets on the tip of your penis or goes back into the hole of your penis, can you get a urinary tract infection or a bacterial infection, or an infection of any kind

Anything : Anything is possible, but this is an unlikely scenario unless the urine somehow had contact with feces. If you develop fever, burning with urination, or urinary frequency, visit your doctor for testing and treatment.
