I'm a 37 year old male and monogamous, I have a really bad itching sensation in my urethra that is most pronounced at the base of my penis and radiates the length or my urethra to the tip of my penis. It's really hard to keep from massaging it in order to alleviate the itching sensation. No other symptoms. Wife has no symptoms either, though she has had the occasoinal yeast infection in the past.
Also in researching the subject what are the chances of me having a yeast infection? I did the saliva test (spitting in glass of water first thing in morning) and I was definitely positive, but all of the sites that list this test are also trying to pedal their natual cure as well so I just wonder how reliable this test is. Maybe everyone tests positive in this test??
Urethral itching can be a symptom of urethritis (NGU, chlamydia, etc). Uusally there is abnormal penile discharge, but not always. Some monogamous people probably can get NGU from oral sex; normal oral bacteria from a partner's mouth probably cause some cases. Or perhaps your partner has had other partners (?); of course I have no way of judging that possibility. Yeast infections of the urethra are rare; that is an unlikely possibility But all this is speculation. See a health care provider if your symptoms persist.
The spit test for yeast infection is pure quackery, to be totally disregarded and never done again by anybody anywhere ever.
Hi. In the last few days I've been experiencing a slight itching sensation in my urethra. I did a little research online, and I suspect that it's urethritis, as there has been some discharge. I'm wondering what's going on, as I haven't had any type of intercourse in about a month, and these symptoms have only been occurring for a couple of days. Thanks!
I too have had itching in my urethra its sparatic and i also get this pain in the back of my left leg. I also get bad headaches and some days it feels like i.m dying. I ve gone to the er over 6 times and am told there is nothing wrong with me! Whats going on?
