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

Wear a condom and you will reduce your risk significantly! ...Read more
