Brief Answer:
possibly infection..needs to be ruled out

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

As per the description of your symptoms, its more pointing towards infection. Because stricture urethra may have symptoms of decreased urinary stream, straning at urination and there will be bladder outlet obstruction also.

So from the clinical symptoms , I can conclude it may be infection. Any ways its better to rule out the exact problem which is causing.

Please consult a urologist If your problem is not corrected by a course of antibiotics .

In my clinic I usually treat my patients like this with empirical antibiotic therapay with combination of cefixime200+ ofloxocin 200 twice daily for a week , Urinaray alkanizer like citralka syrup 20 ml thrice a day and plenty of oral fluids. If it will not subside I will refer to a urologist.

The bleeding is getting thicker. Could this be a bladder infection? Should I refrain from sex with my wife? Is this a symptom of cancer? I feel the urge to urinate almost constantly, is this normal?

Brief Answer:
yes you should avoid intercourse

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back,

Passage of blood evrytime during urination is surely alarming sign. Its no matter Whether its a infection or a stricture problem, I suggest you to consult your urologist ASAP.

Feel of urgency and increased frequency of urination is a common feature if there is infection

Complete urine examination and Ultrasound of abdomen gives every information about your problem.

I have sharp pain in my urethra, mostly after I pee but not always, sometimes not even days. I have been on meds for bladder infections for what isstarting 3 weeks but it doesnt seem to be helping. Also I have a dull pain in my midsection feels almost like a side stich you get after running without warming up, but its more toward the side front on my left side. I am 37 years old, 220 lbs and 5 .1

I had unprotected oral sex with a girl I met at a party 5 days ago. She performed fellatio on me. The very next day I had a slight burning sensation at the tip of my penis. This got much worse the next day and so I sought out a doctor who suggested it was likely a fungal infection of the urethra caused by an infection in the girls mouth. I am booked to have an STD check after two weeks have elapsed just to check if it s something like chlamydia or gonorrhea. The burning sensation is nearly gone after two days of anti fungal medication and I have had no burning while peeling or discharge and my urine is clear. Does the diagnosis sound correct to you? Thanks

Hi. I'm a male and have pain in my urethra near the tip of the penis. Had unprotected sex a week ago. Have seen a doctor and they did a urine test since there was almost insignificant discharge. I was told I have a bacterial infection and have been given the following medicines: VDM-KIT and Augmentine 625mg one tab twice a day for 5 days. Is this correct? How long can expect the symptoms to disappear and get back to normal? James
