Comprehensive Information, Resources, and Support on Urethritis

Urethritis is generally transmitted through sexual contact, but it can also occur due to other reasons. It can develop as a result of a complication of brachytherapy. If it is transmitted through a sexual activity, it is generally caused by one of the two types of sexually transmitted infections.

When urethritis is caused by pathogens (such as germs) and not by the sexually transmitted infection gonorrhea, it is called non-gonococcal urethritis. Sometimes, it is termed non-specific urethritis when no cause is identified for the infection. Urethritis is the most common condition and is a sexually transmitted disease.
