In brief: Almost always sex
Non-gonococcal urethritis or ngu, sometimes known as nsuis almost caused through sexual contact.
The most common cause is bacterial duie to chlamydia, and less commonly ureaplasma, hemophylus or mycoplasma. Trichcomonas, a parasitic infection and rarely herpes (a virus) can be causative. Ureaplasma ngu can be transmitted without sex. Non infectious causes are catheterization or spermicidal cream.

My advice regarding NGU is to get treatment ASAP. Also contact any sex partners you have had over the previous three months, you could have been infected by any one of them or even passed it on. Do not engage in sex antil you are symptom free and then always use a condom for mutual protection. Untreated NGU or NSU can lead to infertility.
