Your Private GP and Sexual Health Clinic in Canary Wharf

An inflammation of the urethra which causes painful urination

Dr Wayne Cottrell:


  • Inflammation of the urethra
  • Very common problem in men
  • Commonly caused by Chlamydia, M Gen, Ureaplasma, Trichomonas, Adenovirus and Herpes, but often no cause identified
  • Non-infectious causes such as irritation by foreign bodies, soap or even lube
  • The same organisms that cause urethritis in men can potentially cause symptoms in females such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and therefore partners need to be treated


  • Dysuria (painful urination)
  • Clear urethral discharge
  • Penile, urethral discomfort
  • Asymptomatic
  • Epididymo-orchitis
  • Sexually acquired reactive arthritis

Testing and Treatment

  • Treated with oral Antibiotics dispensed onsite
  • Abstinence for 14 days after treatment
  • Contact testing and treatment of partners
  • For recurrent NSU we offer additional screening for the less common causes of NSU
  • Rule out other conditions such as prostatitis
