Doctor :  
if you can provide i shall interpret it
User :   what do you need me to provide you with
User :   is there treatment available?
Doctor :   urethritis is because of sexual and non sexual
Doctor :  
if it is transmitted by sexual intercourse it is called STD
Doctor :  
if not it is called simply UTI
Doctor :  
and all have treatment
User :   is there anything I can take for it? what kind of antibiotics?
Doctor :  
so if you provide me the urine routine report i shall confirm whether it is infective urethritis or is it just because of concentrated urine
User :   ok how do I send you report?
Doctor :   than we can discuss the treatment option
Doctor :   you can mail it to YYYY@YYYY

Doctor :   ok
Doctor :  
once you get mail it to us we shall reply to you by e-mail
User :   ok I will email it to me. will you email me back then?
Doctor :   yeah
Doctor :  
for now it seems to me that it is either you have a mild grade of UTI or passage of concentrated urine is causing this problem
Doctor :   so consume lot of water
User :   well I am concerned it is NGU urethritis and some type of infection that i need antibiotics for. But I really want to get treatment and get rid of this infection is what I really want
User :   yes I am consuming lots of water
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
let me analyze your reports
Doctor :

Doctor :  
need not worry in this regard
User :   ok I will get them sent to you tomorrow. How can I receive treatment will you send me the prescriptions?
Doctor :   i will analyze and suggest you what to be done next
Doctor :  
In your country online prescription is not valid by law and it is not honored by the chemist
Doctor :   if it requires antibiotics than you have to obtain prescription from a Primary care physician
User :   I would need to go see a doctor here in Illinois
