Have Urology Questions? Ask a Urologist Online.
Have you been sexually active with any risky partners?
Do you have discharge from your penis?
Did they test you for STDs?
Did they actually do a formal urine culture or just a urinalysis in the office?
OK. Well your symptoms sound to be consistent with an infection of the urethra called urethritis. This can be due to either bacteria or viruses. Most Viruses cannot be detected by culture. I would recommend you see a urologist for an exam and to consider starting you on a medication such as doxycycline for 14 days to see if this clears up the symptoms. This antibiotic may be better for urethritis. If you have any leakage from the urethra, this needs to be sent for a culture as well. Hope this helps.
This most certainly sounds like urethritis. I think they need to repeat your urine culture and all your STD testing and you should be placed on doxycycline to see if this clears this up.
If it is due to a virus, it will clear up on its own. But if it is bacterial, then antibiotics are typically needed to clear it.
This may take weeks to clear if it is viral. But I would recommend a repeat set of cultures before you let this go for weeks untreated in the event your first cultures were false negative.
