I have been having burning sensation while urinating for almost a year now and general discomfort at the end of the urethra which looks red when the symptoms get worse. I've also noticed a constant a low grade fever (37.3 till 37.5 Celsius). I am a 21-year old female and have had unprotected sex around the time when the symptoms developed.
I have been in all sorts of antibiotics (doxycicline, rulid, penicilin) and an antifungal pill for up to two weeks and and the symptoms didnt go away and I can also say the burning got worse during that time too. So I was wondering could this be a viral urethritis? I have been tested for HSV 1/2 and they came back negative, but I've also read about Epstein-Barr Virus, Adenovirus and Cytomegalovirus, as possible urogenital pathogens. Could any of those be my case? and if so how long do they usually last or are there any available treatments? I read Adenovirus usually clears within few weeks but what is the course of the other viruses?
Thank you in advance. Any insight into this would be much appreciated!
