Can pain during urination be due to UTI and can UTI last for 6-7 years ?

Hi there, I am a 20 year old male. Virgin. Several weeks after I turned 13 I started noticing an intense pain during urination. I told my Dad, but he shamed me and told me that it is because I masturbate, and if I wanted the pain to stop: I must stop masturbating. In fact I have gone several months without masturbating, and the pain is still there. As the years went by, the pain became more and more intense until last year, when I started noticing little dabs of blood coming out after I urinate. And this year, the pain lasts a little while after I finish urinating. It seems like the pain is coming from the mid lower shaft of the urethra , somtimes it feels like it is coming directly from the base of the urethra. It s hard to tell. I live on my own now and don t have healthcare . Is there anything I can do to make the pain stop? Could it possibly be a urinary tract infection? Could a urniary tract infection last for 6-7 years? Thank You.

Hi,
you have got some damage and infection in your penile urethra as you got a drop of blood after you urinate.
Go for routine urine check up and take one course of urinary antibiotic.take plenty of water.
If still problem persists then you may require ultra sound of bladder and urethra.

Hi Doc, I am 25 year old male and I contracted UTI about a week ago. My doctor prescribed me with Amoxicilin antibiotics (5-day course) and Ural to cleanse my urinary tract. I suspect that the infection had occurred along my urethra as I only felt pain when passing urine, had yellow discharge from my penis and no fever at all, and the urine test showed that there was an unusually high amount of white blood cells in my urine so it was an infection although it was not determined what bacteria was causing it (I had a full blown UTI years ago caused by E.Coli and at that time, I had high fever, chills and night terrors, so this time around it wasn t as bad as the previous one). As soon as I took the antibiotics, the symptoms begin to disappear and I thought that was the end of it. For a week, everything was fine and no symptoms manifested at all. However, today I felt a strong sensation to urinate in the morning (which woke me up from my sleep) and i felt a numb pain in my groin after urinating plus there was a small trace of blood in the urine. I went back to sleep and later in the morning, the sensation is still there but much lesser and there are some yellow discharge coming out of my penis. Strangely I don t feel any pain during urination at all, my urine is clear as it should be and no unusual smell was detected, although there is some tingling sensation in my groin which is rather irritating. I am worried that the infection is recurring and is it unusual to get the symptoms again after a week of meds? Or is it just residual effects of the infection and its a sign that its healing slowly? Note that I did not contract the UTI from a sexual intercourse and its most probably due to diarrhea that i got 3 weeks ago. Should I go see the same doctor or look a for a second opinion? Please help, thanks.

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

I have a learning disability due to high fevers as an infant. I was told that the hippocampus in my brain was damaged, and it makes it hard for me to remember things. Also, I was told that due to my urethra being narrow and not being able to pass urine caused me to have high fevers as an infant, Along with middle ear infections. Apparently I had it all. My question is, other than having to work harder in school to get the grades I need to pass, is there another way to make things a little easier for me to learn, and retain information? I will be 51 in two weeks, so im sure my age may have some thing to do with memory as well.
