Brief Answer: Looks like mild uretheritis. Detailed Answer: Hello, Welcome to XXXXXXX Your symptoms indicate mild uretheritis, that inflammation of urethra.Generally no treatment is needed if there are no other symptoms. Sometime dehydration can cause such symptoms. Drinking lots of water and taking juices can help flush off if there is minor infection and relieve your symptoms. If symptoms progress then I would recommend a short course of antibiotics and routine urine investigation. Hope this answers your questions. Please feel free to ask if there are doubts.Regards.

Thank you so much!!!! Is it possibly Chlamydia or some other STD ? Should I get tested ? Some kind of infection ? After my aortic valve replacement my doctors warned me to be very alert to infections and deal with them early and aggressively. By the way, I live in Quito Ecuador and my Spanish is limited, so it is great to be able to discourse like this.

Brief Answer: I would not like jump to STD first. Detailed Answer: As I mentioned in prior report to get a routine urine analysis done. If this shows evidence of any infection then you can go ahead with tests for STDs. But looking at details its very likely that this will be some minor bacterial urine infection. So get a urine routine done , if that shows evidence of infection then go ahead with higher tests.I am suggesting this in view of your aortic valve history. Regards
