Uti's are common in women, but not so much in men. Only about 3% of all men worldwide get UTI's.  You are part of that group.  Hopefully antibiotics will clear it up and you'll not have to worry about it again. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/320872.php

I’d for sure test accurately for mycoplasma genitalium. No antibiotics for 3-4 weeks and test first void urine.

Hello,  have you had any follow up?  Typically if symptoms do not resolve, they test urine again.  Have you recovered?
