Urinary Disorders

Burning After Unrination

06/02/2009

Question:

Why do I have burning after urinating that sometimes lasts a couple of minutes? I went to the doctor and I have no STD. Some months ago I was having a lot of urinary infections, but lately I haven`t had any.

Answer:

You may not have an STD but burning with urination is abnormal and usually represents an infection. I would have a urine culture done. If this is negative and you are male you still may have a prostate infection. If it persists you should see a Urologist.
