25 year old, Male
Most of today was fine. Randomly halfway through the day I felt a burning sensation that felt like it was coming from inside my urethra towards the middle/base pf penis. Urinated and pain seemed to go away. Few hours later, burn pain comes back slightly and urge to urinate but not much urine. Since its started, I feel slightly irritated in my urethra and have the urge to urinate on and off.
I have not had sex in a year and have tested negative for ALL sti's a few months ago (full panel including herpes, syphilis, gonhorrea, chlamydia). Ive also had similar pain sometimes when I fail to ejaculate for a while and decide to masterbate and then urinate too close after I climax.
I heard its damn near impossible for guys to get a UTI not sexually. I do wear fitted boxers and shorts and heard rough sex/masterbation can also cause this sensation, but this came out of nowhere and during the middle of the day at work (4pm) so no chemicals or rough handling of the sort (other than a few erections during the day pushed down by fitted clothes).
I was urinating a lot today do to a large consumption of fluids. Could I have irritated my urethra from constant frequent urination?
Anyone have similar issues? Should I see a doc or wait it out tonight and see if the irritation subsides tomorrow? I'm hoping I didn't somehow get an infection and am freaking out!!
