Non-specific urethritis

What is it?

Non-specific urethritis (NSU) affects men and is usually caused by sexual contact with someone who has an STI, although it can also be caused by urinary tract infections.

What are the symptoms?

There may be no apparent symptoms of NSU but you may notice pain when weeing, feeling you need to wee more often, or a discharge from your penis.

Tests and treatment

A doctor or nurse may want to examine your genitalia, take a urine sample, or take a swab from your penis or urethra. If NSU is found it can be effectively treated with antibiotics.

What can happen if its not treated?

If not treated, NSU can cause reduced fertility and Reiter's syndromewhichcauses eyes, joints and urethra to become inflamed.
