How come it takes for urethritis symptoms to go away?

Here are some ...: Urethritis denotes the lining (mucosa) of urethra & its submucosa is becoming the battlefield of immune mechanism to fend off the insult by bugs or injury, to which white blood cells and immunoglobulins automatically converge to forge various degrees of inflammation so to rid bugs and heal the damaged tissue. As a result, the nerve-endings in inflamed tissues alter their sensitivity so ... ...Read more

I was diagnosed with urethritis back in April. How long does it take for all the symptoms to go away?

Before now: If it was completely treated usually the symptoms go away. Sometimes there is residual inflammation. I'll often put men on Alleve twice a day for 10 days or so to see if this helps. If symptoms continue you may need a longer course of treatment or follow up. ...Read more

Orchiplexy for suspected torsion 10 days ago though no sign of that or infection during exploration. Now experiencing urethritis symptms. Related?

Here are some ...: Not seeing the sign of torsion at exploring and fixing the suspected recurrent torsioned-testis, which usually presents a picture of highly variable onset, degree, duration, and interval of recurrent testicular pain, is normally expected. If recurrent testicular pain disappeared after orchiopexy, that meant the Dx was correct. Clinically, urethritis is highly unrelated with the surgery. See Doc... ...Read more

I was diagnosed with urethritis caused by staphylococcus aureus about 3 years ago, symptoms subside with ciprofloxacin and often return after sometime?

Taking Doxy for Urethritis due to S. Aureus. I'm on day 7. Should I still feel some burning after pee? When will symptoms go away?

Taking Doxy for Urethritis due to S. Aureus. I'm on day 7. Should I still feel some burning after pee? When will symptoms go away?

Return to doctor: Very unusual. S aureus rarely causes urethritis; in 40 years in the STD business, I have never seen or heard of it. And if staph is the cause, doxy would not normally be the recommended treatment. Even if present (e.g. positive culture), staph may not be the cause of the your urethritis. Were you tested for gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomonas? Doxy is excellent for chlamydia but not the others. ...Read more

Took 2 doses daily of Bactrium for 5 days for urethritis. How long until I can have sex? Today was last day. Symptoms are pretty much gone.

Took 2 doses daily of Bactrium for 5 days for urethritis. How long until I can have sex? Today was last day. Symptoms are pretty much gone.

Recommend 7 days: from the start of taking the antibiotic before engaging in sexual activities. When you say "pretty much gone", that's not very reassuring. Make sure you don't rush back into the activity which gave you a UTI in the first place. If you still have symptoms, you will need a swab culture to make sure the right antibiotic was selected. Wear a condom and you will reduce your risk significantly! ...Read more
