Burning sensation after peeing


I'm getting a slight to mild burning/stinging sensation inside my urethra after peeing - not every time, but it seems to be more and more often. It seems to be exacerbated by contracting my PC muscle or by shaking.

Any thoughts on what it might be / what I should do?

The symptoms can be due to urinary tract infection. To diagnose a UTI please get a complete urine examination and urine culture done. who use diaphragms for birth control, and/or are past menopause are at an increased risk for urinary tract infections. Making a diagnosis of a urinary tract infection includes performing a urinalysis test, which checks for the presence of pus, white blood cells, and bacteria in the urine, which point to a urinary tract infection. A urine culture and sensitivity is usually performed to find the exact microorganism that is causing the infection and to determine the most effective antibiotic to treat it. Your doctor needs to repeat a culture sensitivity test of the urine to prescribe the best possible antibiotic so that the infection does not come back.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
