    Hi Guys

    2 days ago, I noticed that when I urinate, I get a sharp, burning pain in my urethra. It goes away once I've stopped urinating.

    I'm male. Could it be an STI?

    I've always used condoms.

    Infections don't have to be sexually transmitted. UTI's are less common in males, but they still are seen. Go to ur GP.

    could just be a urine infection rather than an STI. They are really common, just go to a doctor and they'll give you some medicine to get rid of it quicker

    Probably a UTI.

    Do you get any blood in your urine at all?

    UTI's are very easily cleared up with antibiotics but you need to go to a doctor asap and get checked out. UTI's are less common in guys but can be serious if left untreated and can lead to kidney infections to get straight to a GP.

    Cystitus. Almost definitely. Best go see your GP anyway but if it is just Cystitus it should either pass in a few days or you can get a cream to clear it up.

    Like others have said, it could be UTI. Only way to be sure is to see your GP
