Hello doctor,

I experience a burning sensation while urination. I have taken the antibiotic course. It is still not relieved completely. It has been four to five months now. I have indulged in oral sex in this period. So, it is a UTI or STD/STI?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

As per your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity), urine culture is sterile.

You can repeat urine routine and urine culture with midstream urine sample.

Take a urinary alkalizer for three to five days. That will relieve you of burning sensation.

Thank you doctor,

Is there any chance of STI/STD or is it just a urinary infection? I have had white discharge previously.



Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Oral sex does not cause STI (sexually transmitted infections), it may be recurrent UTI (urinary tract infection).

If you have a white discharge, that needs to be treated by a gynecologist.
