Date:2021-08-18 click:0
Non-gonococcal urethritis usually occurs in the youthful period. There are more men than women, and 60% of them are under 25 years old. European and American countries believe that this disease is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases. Although the symptoms of non-gonococcal urethritis are milder than gonorrhea, the harm is not less than that of gonorrhea.

Due to the mild symptoms, many patients have lost the best period of treatment, which makes treatment very difficult. This disease is exceptionally mild in women, and infected female patients are often not treated due to mild symptoms, which increases the chance of spreading the disease. 
The incubation period of non-gonococcal urethritis is generally 1-3 weeks, the onset is relatively slow, and many patients have unobvious symptoms, which are often ignored. When combined with gonorrhea, the condition is easily covered by the signs of gonorrhea, which brings many difficulties to the diagnosis and treatment.
Male patients will feel itching and burning sensation at the urethral orifice, red and swollen urethral orifice, frequent and urgent urination, and sometimes mild dysuria, such as not urinating for a long time, or watery or thin mucus flowing out of the urethral orifice in the morning. Or there is dirt on the underwear. Some patients have no urethral secretion or minimal secretion. It is necessary to squeeze the testicles to have secretions overflow from the urethral orifice.
People generally think that there will be no STDs if the urethra has no painful urination and yellow or white secretions flow out. This idea is incorrect. Non-gonococcal urethritis is very common. It is often infected with other venereal diseases such as gonorrhea, condyloma acuminatum, and genital herpes. Routine examinations must be performed during the treatment of these diseases to rule out concurrent chlamydia or mycoplasma infections.

If the patient's condition is mild, available therapies can be used for relief, such as avoiding sexual contact; drink plenty of water to ensure adequate urine output; rest more to ensure good health.
