What causes discomfort in urethra and frequent urination after intercourse?

default
Posted on Tue, 26 May 2015
Question: Hi, I recently received unprotected oral sex, the unprotected part lasted only seconds (they took the condom off at the end). I will point out it was quite rough all round. Since then, within hours of the encounter, I've been noticing very slight discomfort in my urethra and frequency urinating - though admittedly that may be due to concern if it'll burn this time. However only when paying attention to it. Have I possibly contracted in that episode? Or could it just be anxiety based on my reading how common it is apparently to catch std's from oral sex?

Brief Answer:
It can be urinary infection also.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thank you for asking HCM.

I have gone through your query. Your problem can be due to urinary tract infection. Urine routine should be done to rule out the condition. Chance of STD like HIV and hepatitis B and C are possible but less percentage chance.

If it was a risky partner then better to go for a HIV antigen or PCR test after 2 weeks and HIV Duo test after 1 month. Hepatitis B and C also can be done after 1 month. Although the chances are less you can do this for assurance.

In case of urinary infection signs in urine routine antibiotic therapy will help you get better.

Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
Thanks.

I guess my main concerns were gonorrhea or chlamydia is that what you are referring to by the UTI? What are the chances of contracting them and how obvious are the symptoms? Can the burning sensation often described be very subtle or is it something you can't mistake?

I didn't believe I was at high risk of the others from a single episode of seconds of unprotected oral?

Brief Answer:
There are chances of both chlamydia and gonorrhea.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, and welcome.

There are chances of spread of chlamydia and gonorrhea through oral sex. You can do a urine test for these or take a swab from the urethra. The initial symptoms of chlamydia and gonorrhea can be just a burning sensation. Other bacterial infections like E coli or streptococcal infection are possible from oral sex too.

Even though there is a negative test result in case of burning sensation i would recommend Doxycycline therapy for 7 days which will clear up such infections.

If your partner has or had multiple sexual partners then she is a risky one even though there is limited contact you had.

Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.

Thanks.
