Suggest treatment for frequent urinations

default
Posted on Mon, 30 Jan 2017
Question: I'm a 20 year old male and the past few days I've had frequent urination problems. I'll go to the bathroom and pee with a normal stream, than right after I'll feel the pressure that I need to pee more even though I do not. I just started an internship so this is quite distracting right now and I did go to the doctor this morning. the doc didn't find bacteria in my urinalysis for a UTI, but found some very small traces of blood that were micro. She also sent urine out to the lab to test for STD's n put me on meds for Chlamydia as a precautionary procedure because I am sexually active.

So I'm just wondering what could be wrong with me if its not a UTI and that there is blood?? I been working myself up over this and its distracting. I know there are many ranges of what this could be, but I hope its not like a tumor/cancer or something along those lines. Thanks for any input!

Hello and Thanks for the response!

1) I have no pain
2)I don't have any burn except 1 time, which was when I woke
up this morning and first went to the bathroom, but ever since
I've had none.
3)I've had sex with 3 different girls in the last few months
and 1 time the condom broke but I stopped right away and I've
received oral unprotected
4) No discharge from what I've noticed

- I went to the doctor already today and I was told no bacteria
was visible for a UTI diagnosis besides some blood that they noticed that was microscopic

- I was prescribed Azrithromycin (4 tablets at once, each being 250mg)
I was given this because its procedure at my school to give chlamydia meds
to those with urination issues

- I understand I may have an STI, this is all pretty sudden to me
and I'm going to be more careful, I'm just hoping its nothing to serious
because I have a lot going on right now so my time is limited with school
and all.

- So from my description, do you have any clue what this may be?
