Buring While Urinating & STDs

When it feels like your genitals are burning, urinating can become an excruciating activity. There are several conditions, including STDs, that can produce this uncomfortable feeling, and understanding what's causing your discomfort is the first step toward making the pain go away.

STDs that Cause Burning: Urinating Made Painful

A burning sensation during urination could be a gonorrhea, chlamydia, or trichomoniasis symptom. All of these sexually transmitted infections may, in addition to burning urination, produce genital discharge and overall genital pain. Anyone who has unprotected intercourse is at risk for contracting these and other diseases, and to accurately diagnose this symptoms, STD testing must be performed.

When this symptom or other possible STD symptoms crop up, it's important to have STD testing performed sooner rather than later. In women, two STDs associated with painful urination, chlamydia and gonorrhea, can lead to infertility and other complications when left untreated. 

Identifying the Burning: Urinating While Infected

Although the sensation of burning urination is a known symptom of STDs like trichomoniasis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia, there are several non-sexually transmitted infections that can cause this burning sensation. A urinary tract infection can make going to the bathroom a source of agony. When the feeling of burning during urination is accompanied by blood in the urine, the urge to urinate more frequently than usual, and the feeling that your bladder can't be emptied, a UTI could be to blame. UTIs can affect men and women alike, though females tend to be far more susceptible. In women, the feeling of burning urination can also be attributed to yeast or bacterial infections. 

Stop the Burning: Urinating After Infection Has Cleared

Based on the results of gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis testing, medication can be taken to alleviate the symptom of burning while urinating and cure the underlying condition entirely. The same holds true for burning urination caused by a UTI, bacterial infection, or yeast infection. Burning during urination is something that no one should have to endure, so if the problem hits you unexpectedly, it's in your best interest to take action rather than sit back and suffer every time you have to hit the toilet.
