Non-gonococcal urethritis is a specific urethritis caused by infection of the urinary tract by pathogenic bacteria other than gonococcus. The main floras of non-gonococcal urethritis are Chlamydia and Mycoplasma, which can be transmitted through sexual intercourse and can be contracted by both men and women.

The symptoms of non-gonococcal urethritis in men are relatively mild, and if delayed, they can be mild or severe. The symptoms of the infection manifest a tingling or burning sensation in the urethra, and occasionally a stinging sensation, with discharge from the urethral orifice. But the discharge is thin.

Most patients with non-gonococcal urethritis exhibit a chronic course with symptoms such as a sensation of cramping and dull pain in the posterior urethra, perineum, and anus. It can reflect the area below the diaphragm, which can produce sexual dysfunction. The enlarged rectum will also constantly compress the prostate and induce prostatitis.
The symptoms of non-gonococcal urethritis are clinically more likely to be swollen epididymis and testicles, which feel hard and painful when touched, scrotal edema, and thickening of the vas deferens, where pathogens can be isolated by extracting the edematous fluid. This is one of the main risks of non-gonorrhea, which often coexists with urethritis.

Urethral inflammation can lead to urethral stricture or urethral orifice obstruction, thus affecting the urethra and vas deferens. This can lead to blockage of the vas deferens, which can seriously lead to male infertility. Moreover, if the disease is not treated, it can also threaten adjacent organs and tissues. 
The prostate and seminal vesicles are the most susceptible to infection, which will affect the normal activity of sperm and the quality of sperm. If the infection is accidentally transmitted to the partner, the other party will be infected with gynecological inflammation, thus causing female infertility.
