User :   Hello.
I'm 34 years old male.
I have a tingling sensation at the tip of my penis after urination, it is not really a burning, more like an "odd feeling". I don't have any pain during urination at all, but I have a feeling after I urinate that I am still urinating or leaking in my pants. I have checked this wearing white underwear and I have no stains and cannot find any unusual liquid coming out of my urethra. This has been going on for about 3 days now.
I am sexually active with my girlfriend, we have recently began having sex again (largely unprotected) since the middle of December. She is known to get bladder infections fairly easily, but nothing is wrong with her right now.
I think I had the same thing happen 2.5 years ago. The doctor did a prostate check, said he didn't think it was swollen. He did a test of my urine and said he found some elevated protein level and some puss but no infection with any bacteria he could identify. He put me on antibiotics anyway, after a few days the symptoms went away. I think at that time the symptoms were worse, I felt like there was something stuck in the tip of my penis (like you have food stuck between you teeth) but nothing was there and I had to urinate often.
Any ideas?

Doctor :   Ok.
