Non-specific urethritis is an inflammation of the urethra. In terms of clinical evolution there are two types of non-specific urethritis: acute urethritis and, if not treated properly, chronic urethritis may occur. As for the infectious origin, non-specific urethritis can be bacterial or viral, although approximately 80-90% of urethritis are of bacterial cause.
It is an infection that affects mostly men, but women can also be diagnosed with non-specific urethritis. It can be sexually transmitted, as it is the case for the specific urethritis or not sexually transmitted, which is the case for non-specific urethritis.
If not treated properly, non-specific urethritis can cause some serious health complications, infertility being one of them. Easily treated with antibiotics, like Doxycycline or Azithromycin. You can purchase these drugs from our on-line pharmacy store, after completing the on-line consultation.
What are the causes of non-specific urethritis?
Studies revealed the fact chlamydia is responsible in 50% cases for non-specific urethritis. This infection occurs in other organisms too, herpes simplex virus, human papilloma virus (HPV), AND Trichomonas vaginitis included. Unprotected sex must be avoided as it is a main risk factor for these diseases.
What are the symptoms of non-specific urethritis?
Although non-specific urethritis is often asymptomatic, left untreated can lead to serious health conditions. For men, among symptoms, a penile discharge occurs, along with painful and itching urination and painful sexual intercourse. In women no symptoms will be present, until the infection reaches the urethra.
At this point discomfort and pain is possible, leading to symptoms such as high temperature, vomiting and bleeding between periods. Also, pain in the stomach and pelvis is possible. Fertility is severely affected by non-specific urethritis. Women are prone to infertility and ectopic pregnancy, while men are prone to testicle infections and permanent damage of their fertility levels.
Recurrent urethritis is a reality, but if left untreated non-specific urethritis can also generate Reite`s Syndrome or epididymo-orchitis.
