Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query ,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Do you have any urinary symptoms like burning ,urgency .pain etc ?

The pain at the tip of urethra could be due to inflammation of terminal part of urethra (Meatus).

Please get your routine urine test and urine culture done to find out the organisms causing this infection and antibiotics to which they are sensitive to.

You need to take broad spectrum antibiotic like Cefixime along with anti inflammatory drug like Diclofenac twice daily .along with topical local anesthetic ointment like Nupercaine twice daily.

Ensure to wash your genitals with warm water twice daily.

Ensure to avoid sexual encounters till it heals up completely.

It should get cured within a week .

Thanks and Regards.

I don't have any pain being or ejaculating. the penus looks normal. and the pain is on a little spot right next to the opening. it's on the tip of the penus on the right side. if I press hard on it it doesn't hurt at all. but I small touch for a second or so will feel a pain. I don't think it's an STD as I didn't have sex with anyone other then wife. and I know we both aren't cheating.

I had 3day 8 cells perfect embrio (the embriologyst said) transfer on 10.03 2014. last night at 02.30 am - 4-5 day after the transfer I felt sharp pain lower abdomen starting from the front pushing toward the back.During the 4 day from the morning on several occasions I felt some cramps as well, lower back pain and my ovaries were like burning sensation or sore. I usually feel ovulation, and have been checking my symptoms with a doctor check up and my symptoms were confirmed to be true, that I did feel the ovulation and ovulated at the time I felt it. So, this morning at 2.30 am I thought that it is implantation as it was 4 days past 3 day embryo transfer. But as they started I remembered that I forgot to put progesterone gel that night. I panicked and walked to put it, went to pee and went to bed again. I am worried that by getting out of the bed and waling to put the progesterone vaginal gel, I might have disrupted the implantation of the embryo. Please tell me whether I have stopped the implantation, and does the embryo still has a chance
