Hi doctor,

Around 15 years ago, I used to take a lot of Amphetamine and used to masturbate a lot. As a result, I caused a huge amount of damage to the penis and it constantly leaked urine. 3 years ago, I plucked up the courage finally to see a urologist, who said that my urethra was red and angry. But, I have never had any pain. Now, for the last few days, I am having constant pain in my penis. I went to the doctors and gave a urine sample. The result was negative without any infection. But, my doctor gave me antibiotics. I am worried that this could now be my urethra that is hurting me, but why would it start hurting now after all these years. My penis is very weak and I have to wear tracksuit bottoms as I keep leaking urine and it will be visible even through jeans. Would urethra hurt like this? If not, then what else could it be? The pain is all over the penis and a little more at the tip than anywhere else.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Please relax and do not worry.

  • I think there is no relation about your past habit of Amphetamines and present burning in urethra.
  • The burning pain of the urethra may be due to subclinical infection, which is not detected in urine test that you had.
  • Did you have a urine culture test to rule out an infection? If not, then after you finish the antibiotic course have a urine culture test to rule out infection.
  • I suggest medicines to reduce your pain or discomfort. Kindly consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and take the treatment with consent.
  1. Tablet Flavospas (Flavoxate) one tablet thrice daily for 15 days.
  2. Syrup Cital (Disodium hydrogen citrate) 10 mL in a glass of water thrice daily for 15 days.
  • Urine may appear red with the above medicines, so do not get worried. Finish your antibiotic course along with the above medicines and have a urine culture test.

Thank you doctor,

Do you think it is an infection of the urethra? Can you suggest any alternative medicines for the above? 



Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Yes, I do think it as an infection in your urine and not urethra.
  • If the trade name is not available, then ask your doctor to prescribe you the concerned drug. The active ingredients are Disodium hydrogen citrate and Flavoxate.
