When did this start?
about a week ago
have you had any recent unprotected sex?
Okay, any change in urinary habits?
Okay, this is likely a sign of dribbling post urination, if there is no change in urinary symptoms or pain with urination, or discharge, it is unlikely to be an STI, it is possible it could be a urinary tract infection
it may require antibiotics to treat, but first, you need a urine analysis
I just completed a comprehensive test last week and a thourough urine analysis was carried out but this was not mentioned as the focus was different
let's go for the antibiotics
It should include a urine culture
so what can be the cause of urinary tract infection?
It may be caused by previous scarring in the urethra, or prostate enlargement also increases the chances of getting it in men
my wellness test indicates no problem with my prostate
so what do you advice then Doc?
I advise a urine culture
my prefer option is to have some antibiotics and then visit the hospital later
the wellness test drained my pocket or now - ha ha
thanks for understanding
