Urethra pain: The only safe sex is no sex. So I would discuss with your DR. You may need a culture of your urethra discharge.
Dr. Bernard Seif
Clinical Psychology 40 years experience
Urethra pain: You've seen your doc and taken cipro. Please now ask your doc for a referral to a urologist. That type of doc deals w/these issues regularly. Peace and good health.
