Customer Question

I am a 26 yo male and Yesterday I woke up and noticed after I passed urine, the opening of my penis was stinging. The same sensation as if soap had gotten into the inside of me pee hole is the best was I can explain it. I grabbed the head to look in the hole and it hurt a lot. I woke up today and not it only hurts while the pressure of the urine is pushing my urine out. I purchased a UTI test kit from AZO and it was negative. I am away in another state other than my home state with no insurance. Should I wait longer before panicking> Need your assistance thank you.

It is likely a uti. The home tests are very inaccurate. As long as you don't have fevers, then you shouldnt panic. You have time to wait till you can see your doctor. Alternatively you can go to an urgent care for evaluation.

I hope this helps. Please ask any follow up questions you have until you feel satisfied with your answer. Positive ratings are much appreciated!

I forgot to add, There is a strong smell to my urine aswell. I just want to rule out any STI's or STD's. If it goes away in a certain amount of time theoretically specking, should I be worry free, being its only been 24hrs?

Only way to rule out an std is a urine test. If you have had unprotected intercourse then it is a possibility. Even if the stinging goes away, that doesn't necessarily mean that there was no infection. Best to get the urine tested to be safe that you don't need antibiotics. I hope this helps please leave a positive rating.
