I am a 17 year old male who has become sexually active in the last 4 months. I have only had one partner during this time, but we have had unprotected sex. Shortly after our first time I noticed a mild burning sensation while I was urinating. The discomfort was not severe so I did not think anything of it. The sensation was intermittent: I would have pain for a time, then for a week I would feel nothing.
However, in the last two weeks my symptoms have intensified, and I have developed new ones. The burning sensation has worsened, and I have trouble beginning to pee. In between urination or ejaculation I have a mild, yet irritating burning pain in my urethra which does not go away for a while. My other symptoms include infrequent pain in the lower abdomen, dull pain in my left testicle, increased frequency of urination, and occasional chills. I have had no discharge from my penis during this time.
I have researched the possible causes on the internet, but I am not sure of the quality of the information. I am hoping that it is a simple UTI that can be treated easily, but I am hesitant to assume that considering the recent sexual activity.
Please respond and give me your thoughts on my problem. Thank You
all your symptoms point to a UTI...however, many genital health problems have the same symptoms so it can be hard to say. BUT, UTI's can easily be tested at the doctors office, just a simple urine sample, wont take long and harmless. If you cant afford to go to a doctor, try going to a local drugstore, CVS, Walgreens etc...whatever is local, and look for AZO urinary tract infection Test Strips...its about 10-12$. If you do have a UTI, you need to be treated asap. Letting an infection go untreated for a long period of time can cause serious damage for the future. You will be prescribed antibiotics, which the infection will go away in a matter of 2 days, but usually you are required to take medication for an entire week...just make sure you do what the doctor says. BOTTOM LINE, I recommend you seek medical attention immediately.
