Urethritis

Updated: MAY 11, 2020

Urethritis refers to the inflammation of the urethra in both men and women. Painful and uncomfortable urination is the number one symptom. To confirm, immediate consultation with a doctor is necessary. Urethritis is a bacterial infection; and it is likely contracted through unprotected sex. It is either gonococcal urethritis or nongonococcal. Gonococcal urethritis is caused by neisseria gonorrhoeae while the other one is caused likely by chlamydia trachomatis.

More About Urethritis

Urethritis is considered a sexually transmitted disease. Basic prevention includes limiting sexual activity within monogamous relationships, and the strict practice of protected sex. However, this does not mean one can't get infected. Urethritis may also be caused by chemical irritants, such as soaps, lotions, and powders. In fact, even contraceptives and spermicides can cause the disease.
