Burning/stinging urinating. Urethral redness and very sore. Could this be bladder infection? Have been having problems since bladder sling surgery.

U R (ine) correct: It is a probable urinary tract infection that needs immediate attention. Frequent UTI's post sling surgery suggests that you are not completely emptying your bladder and the residual urine is getting repeatedly infected. Have a Urologist or GYN Urogynecologist evaluate your voiding patterns with Urodynamic testing once the infection has cleared. ...Read more

Burning with urination from herpes outbreak?

Burning with urination from herpes outbreak?

Not likely: Genital herpes isn't always symptomatic. Often times you'll never know that you have an infection. When you do, all you'll notice are blisters on a red base. Burning upon urination suggests either a bladder or kidney infection (different manifestations of urinary tract infections), or possibly a different sexually transmitted infection. Go see your family physician for proper diagnosis & treatment. ...Read more

I've known I have herpes for about 4 months now. I don't have any exterior outbreak now. Can herpes cause urgency, frequency, burning with urination?

I've known I have herpes for about 4 months now. I don't have any exterior outbreak now. Can herpes cause urgency, frequency, burning with urination?

Usually not: If there are active herpes lesions around the urethra (where urine comes out) then that might cause urinary urgency. But that's unusual. Herpes lesions in the vagina will sting if urine passes over them, but they will also hurt when wiping, etc. A more likely explanation of these symptoms is a bacterial bladder infection. ...Read more

Should I see a specialist for having burning with urination, or can my regular doctor take care of it?

Should I see a specialist for having burning with urination, or can my regular doctor take care of it?

Regular doctor: If this is new onset, especially if you are a sexually active female, it could just be a urinary tract infection (uti).

Even if that is not the cause, your pcp can decide if it is something they will take care of or if they want to send you to a specialist. ...Read more

I was treated for gonorrhea week ago. I'm still experiencing burning with urination and extreme tenderness with palpitation.

I have a mild sting in my urethra, but no pain during urination and I urinate normally and there is no discharge either. Should I be worried?

Probably not, but...: If your stinging only occurs occasionally, you're not sexually active, or taking spice foods, that is ok as long as having a normal ua. But for sexually active men with frequent recurrent stinging, std needs to be considered since many std-infected men can be free of symptoms. Yet, nice to know: every life event always presents its self as a pattern of full spectrum, from none to extreme severe. ...Read more

Condom broke 5 days ago, now I have a tingling in my uretha and a slight tingle or itch around pubic area. No rash or sores, No burning urine.?

Probably ok, but...: This is not particularly suggestive of an infection. Most sexual infections in men, however, produce few or no symptoms. Pain on urination is most common. It is wise for anyone engaging in unprotected (if it breaks, it's unprotected) intercourse outside a monogamous relationship to be checked annually for chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV and syphilis by a simple blood/urine test though any doc/clinic. ...Read more

I randomly have a throb in my urethra during the day. I don't have pain or burning sensations when peeing and no urge to frequently urinate. What is it?

Probably not serious: Assuming you haven't had any discharge of pus or mucus fromt he penis, I would guess it's nothing more than genitally focused anxiety. But if in doubt, see a doctor. The Honolulu and Hawaii health dept STD clinics are very good. Check it out -- probably nothing serioius. Good luck! ...Read more
