Doubt urethritis: If "inflamed" includes urethral discharge and/or white blood cells, ask the GUM clinic about testing and/or treating for possible Mycoplasma genitalium and trichomonas. If you only have urinary discomfort or a little redness at the opening, with no discharge or increased WBC, probably you have no infection at all. Probably you have nothing that will ever harm you or sex partners. Good luck!
