Fast, confidential, local STD testing
Pain after urination is abnormal in both men and women. This symptom can signal a variety of infection, including sexually transmitted diseases. Painful urination may be accompanied by other symptoms such as an unusual discharge, genital discomfort, abnormal vaginal bleeding in women and painful testicles in men.
A number of issues can be responsible for pain or burning after urination. Here are a few:
STD testing can diagnose or rule out common STD infections. An STD test is performed through a simple urine screen, so there’s not painful swabbing or invasive exams. Results are available within 3 days after testing.
When caused by an STD, antibiotics can cure pain after urination. Chlamydia, gonorrhea and trichomoniasis are all easily cured when diagnosed early through STD testing. It’s important to test promptly after noticing possible STD symptoms and treat the infection, since certain STDs can cause serious complications—including infertility in women—when left untreated. If not caused by an STD, a doctor can determine other causes and treatment.
