Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have discomfort in urethra

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Since how long you have discomfort in urethra ?
2) What tests you have done and upload reports ?
3) Did you have have unprotected sex very recently?

The discomfort in urethra is mostly due to inflammation of urethra (Urethritis) .

You need to take broad spectrum antibiotic like Cefixime along with anti inflammatory drug like Diclofenac twice daily for 2-3 weeks

Brief Answer:
Symptoms are mostly due to acidic vaginal secretions

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for follow up .

Vaginal secretions during pregnancy are acidic in nature which cause inflammation of urethra due to unprotected sex.

We at health care magic can not issue prescription as we do not carry out clinical examination of user in person .

The medicines which I have suggested are available only on prescription by a qualified physician hence hence you will need to visit your family physician to get prescription .

Thanks and Regards.
