Had unprotected intercourse, frequent urination, tender penis. Could constant checking cause urethritis or balanitis?

I have had several sexual encounters over the past year. All but 1 with a condom and 1 where a condom broke. After the one where the condom broke, I have been constantly checking myself. (multiple times per day). About a month later, out of the blue I had to urinate constantly and my penis was very tender. I got checked from Chlamidia and gonorhea and negative. I made myself quit checking so often and it has subsided. My question is, could constantly checking myself like that cause urithritis or balantis which could cause me to have to urinate constantly. By the way...Not other symptoms other than that..No discharge , no lesions....my penis was irritated , but I beleive that was from it rubbing as I shave that area, but had not dones so in two weeks. It think it was rubbing on the growing hair...as soon as I shaved, that stopped as well.

Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have developed infection of the urethra and glans (Urethritis and Ballanitis)due to unprotected sex .

Please get your routine urine test and urine culture done to find out the organisms causing this infection and antibiotics to which they are sensitive to.

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics like Cefexine along with urinary antiseptic like Nitrofurantoin twice daily and anti inflammatory medicine like Diclofenac twice daily..Later on switch on to appropriate antibiotics as per culture report.

Get the prescription of medicines from your family Physician.

Ensure to drink more water.To keep your urine dilute This will help to control dysuria.

Ensure to wash your genitals with warm water twice daily

Ensure to avoid sexual encounters till it heals up completely.
