What is urethritis?

Bacterial infection of the urethra (tube from which urine exits the body). It is can be caused by sexually transmitted diseases like Gonorrhea and Chlamydia infections.

Symptoms of urethritis

  • Pain when passing urine

  • Been sexually active with multiple partners during the past 1 month

  • Feeling there is still urine left in the bladder after urinating

  • Pus comes out from urethra - the opening when urine exits from

  • Abdominal pain

Questions your doctor may ask to check for urethritis

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose urethritis

  • Do you feel pain when passing urine?

  • Have you had sexual intercourse with anyone other than a regular partner in the last month?

  • Do you have difficulty completely emptying your bladder?

  • Do you have pus coming out from urethra (the opening where urine passes through)?

  • Do you have abdominal pain (stomach ache)?

Treatment for urethritis

Treatment is with antibiotics to kill the bacteria. It is important to avoid sex during the course of treatment, and to screen for other sexually transmitted diseases at the same time. Sexual partners should also be informed and asked to go for screening, to avoid catching the infection again.
