Unprotected?: Masturbation if aggressive and cause urethral injury. If you are having unprotected sexual intercourse, you must be screened for infection and STDs.

Urethra: Hi.Not knowing much about jelqeuing,I suppose it would be theoretically possible to hurt your urethra.Having said that , the possibility of an STI cannot be excluded.In any event,a doctor visit with a good history should elucidate the probable cause.>you need to be seen irrespective as a damaged urethra can lead to a urethral stricture.If STI ,you can be treated. Good luck
