Thanks for posting your query.
It looks like you are suffering from a urine routine and culture along with complete blood count and an ultrasound scan of the renal system including Prostate.
2. You will have to be put on antibiotics. Most commonly a Fluroquinolone like Tab Levofloxacin for 14 days followed by a repeat urine routine.
3. If the urine grows an organism the antibiotic can be changed to what that organism is sensitive to.
4. Drink plenty of water
5. Use protection during intercourse and your partner should undergo a urine routine as well.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Thanks so much for the response.I do have a few concerns still

i)I am currently at my native and It would take atleast ten days for me to XXXXXXX an urologist .Is it fine If i could take Levofloxacin tablets before considering the urologist.please suggest
ii)To be XXXXXXX with you,it happens even while masturbating(I am single) that i get a burning sensation ..I do it two or three times a week.Is it related to the bladder infection as well?
iii)Does urinary infection cause any problems with the sex life in the future?
Answered by Dr. Rakhi Tayal 16 hours later
Thanks for writing again.
1. You can take levofloxacin or Balofloxacin for a week and see if the symptoms subside. In case the burning sensation persists, then consulting your urologist is recommended.
2. The burning sensation during masturbation is also related to urinary infection.
3. This infection will not affect your future sex life if treated properly.
Hope my answer is helpful.

Hello Doctor

I would like to ask you that an infection happened to my cock from around 2 years when i was doing sex with a lady and i found some blood on the condom always when i do sex and i found blood on the condom i get infection as i always do sex using condom and i wash my cock with Cyteal.

The first time when it happened to me i saw some green gel on my boxer after i went to the doctor and she made for me an injection and gave me medicine ( Ofloxacin and Azitromcin ) and every thing was okay later on also it happened to me although i didn't have sex only oral and i went i take injections and same medicines than later on around 7 month again because of blood i took only the medicine and before 1 month it happened to me but i saw on my boxer a little drops of gel with no color than i took medicine and it went and always i can feel that i have something wrong when my penis is not getting hard 100 % like you can say only 70 % with a little little pain on the head and now i have the same thing my penis is not getting hard 100 % but there is no gel drops on my boxer ...

Thank you so much for your time and your advise.

Hi I have had a very small amount of discharge in the end of my Urethra some mornings if I squeeze all the way along my penis. I noticed this when I started checking due to me slowly finding it more difficult to urinate (seems to spray more than it used to but I've had a bit of a problem with this for years).I thought that it was an sti, and have been treated for chlamidia and am currently on a weeks course of ofloxacin to treat for nsu. I'm only a day away from the end of this treatment and I noticed it's still there this morning.Could this be something else?
