Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Burning urination


Hello John, I am 22. I have been dealing with burning urination for a few years now. I have been to every doctor you could imagine. I've been to gynecologists and urologists. All my urine tests and cultures were negative and my ultrasound and cystoscopy came back normal also. It burns before and after urination especially when my urine is concentrated and during my period. The urologist came to the conclusion that my urethra was just narrow and i have had it stretched twice but it only helps for maybe two weeks! I am just irritated by this. Could my hormones be imbalanced or something?


I'm so sorry :( It doesn't sound very fun to me what you're going through. It sounds like a structural defect because you've been to specialist and unless you're resigned to urinating through a catheter, I don't know how else to give you a better answer. This is pretty much the exact same thing a man goes through when he was prostatitis. His prostate swells so large that it compresses his urethra and he cant urinate at all or when he does it causes intense pain because its like your trying to blow air through a pixie stick. The good news is that there's nothing chemically wrong with you, so no its not your hormones, its the way your body was made :( If you want to speak about urethral stricture more you can email me jbrice1982@gmail or can call me if you wish just let me know.

Best wishes,
