Unspecifc Urethritis?

Edited , 6 users are following.

I started going to toilet to pee a lot. No pain, no discharge. Two days later, I went to a urologist, who pointed out that it could be a urethritis. I was feeling a pression 3 inches bellow my belly bottom, some urethritis disconfort. No strong pain, no discharge.

The physician requested a simple urine test, urine culture (First Void Urine and second urine), a gram analysis, PCR for gonnorrhea and chlamydia, mycoplasma/ureaplasma culture, herpes serology, a trichomonas/fungi microscopy analysis and a blood analysis. He prescribed azythromycin 1g and doxyciclin 100 mg (7 days - twice a day).

The results were as follow:

Culture of urine (FVU and second): no bacteria grow

Gram: no bacteria and no polymorphonuclear leukocytes detect

PCR for C and G: negative

Mycoplasma/ureaplasma culture: negative

Fungi: negative

Trichomonas: negative

Blood analysis: normal (all category leukocytes)

Herpes IGG/IGM: reactive/no reactive (I had some herpes 1 on teenager age)

After the initial treatment, the disconfort inside the urethra is lower, but it's still going on... the pression bellow the belly bottom continues, I feel some pain on abdomen . There is no evidence of herpes on my penis (outside). No discharge.

The physician prescribed mode doxyciclin. All the lab analysis were repeated on a different lab, but the results were the same.

  1. What could it be? Could it be a psychological urethritis?
  2. I started to read about herpes or adenoviruses urethritis... what is the best lab analysis to discover it?
  3. I also read that culture isn't a good way to evaluate mycoplasmas/ureaplasma, and PCR is a better way. Should I ask a new analysis to my urologist?
  4. Is the fresh microscopy a good way to evaluate trichomonas or is there a better lab analysis?

    I'm experiencing something very similar, i have urethral discomfort, a dull pain on the pelvic floor, and sometimes very rarely it stings when i pee, also urethra feels sore. I have been tested with both urine culture and swab test and all of the results came back negative. I think the pain is worse when I'm stressed or tired but it could be unrelated..
