Hello,

You should be able to have protected sex using a condom yes ...

It sounds that you may be treated for urethritis as a possibility so that could be UTI vs an STD ...doxycycline is used more for UTI infections. ..

I hope that this information is helpful for you

I will be happy to get back with you
