A few weeks ago I had burning in my urethra during urination that didn't go away. I thought that it must be an STD so went to the doctor. The gonorrhea and chlamydia tests came back negative, but the urine sample showed white blood cells in the urine. So the doctor prescribed doxycycline which I took for 10 days. After that time it didn't get much better so I am now about to finish a course of ciprofloxacin.
I am still having symptoms so am worried as to what this could be. Is it possible that the STD test was inaccurate? There has never been any discharge, just pain in the urethra. Has anyone else experienced this?
Just looking for any advice from the community here - I just want to get it sorted out!
I noticed that when I urinated after sex yesterday, blood came out of my penis. This morning when I woke up there was blood on my legs and stomach, obviously having come out of my penis. Do you think this is just a burst blood vessel or should I see a doctor?View Thread
