Good day (Dr)

Thank you very much for the answer.

Here are my answers to your questions

1. Yes I am married

2. Yes the woman is known to me and she is not the wife. She also went to the Dr for antibiotics and some injections as a precaution, though she never had any symptoms whatsoever.

3. I do not have any burning when I pass urine, but sometimes immediately afterwards it burns for 3 seconds or so and subsides.

4. No difficulty in passing urine.

5. I am circumcised, but the gland gets dry and the opening tends to loose moisture such that it closes. But when i pass urine it becomes fine.

6. I have not done any tests thus far.

Brief Answer:
Get the tests done suggested in my earlier reply .

Detailed Answer:
hello
Thanks for follow up .

In view of unprotected sex I would suggest you to get these tests done to rule out STD.

Take the treatment suggested for 10 days and observe for any improvement in your symptoms .

Take Tab Nitrofurantoin twice daily in addition to medicine suggested earlier .

It should work for you .

Thanks and Regards.
