I have burning sensation while urinating and a frequent urge to urinate. Can it be due to sexual contact? I am a 22 year old male.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
These symptoms are classical of urinary tract infection, cystitis, prostatitis or urethritis.
Yes, they can be acquired by sexual contact.
Please get a urine culture and sensitivity done along with ultrasound abdomen, because stones in lower ureter can cause these symptoms.
You can start on a good antibiotic like Levofloxacin 500 mg once daily in the morning till you get culture report.

The burn occurs right above the testicles. Is this common? Is there a chance to get STD?
