Urology/Something stuck/tingling in urethra/Frequent urination?


Hi, I am Kyle, 27 years old from Atlanta GA.

Ever since I started masturbating (ages ago) - If i masturbate and pee, then I have a burning sensation in the pee that time. I think thats normal cuz I have never had any discomfort later on after the burning sensation usually goes away in 5 mins..

However, last night I masturbated and then felt the urge to pee (it doesnt always happen). This time round, I have a tingling sensation in me urethra and its a feeling like something some drops are left behind - like something is still in there. It has been close to 24 hrs now... it tingles sometimes, sometimes its fine, sometimes just a lil itchy or so I may be feeling that its itchy, but I am feeling something is stuck there. It makes me want to pee repeatedly thinking it will clear out my Urethra...

Its playin on my mind and I have become very uncomfortable. There are no other problems in that region of what I know off.

Will some1 please throw some light on this and help put my mind at ease- I kept diagnozing myself last night and lost a lot of sleep and I am super uncomfortable even right now...

Also, if these are related - Recently, after a hiatus of two years I am sexually active again, but she has checked out clean and I am going to get myself tested for STD's soon  - although these symptoms are none like what the symptoms of STD's would be - from what I have read online...

Any help.. any.. will be greatly appreciated. I am really worried........ :-(


It's extremely unlikely that there is actually something "stuck" the way you've described.  An STD is possible but also unlikely.  You should check with a local physician or consult a urologist to sort out your problem.  Prostatitis or urethritis are possibilities.
