It burns when I pee and I want a second opinion.


Q: I went to the doctor because it burns when I pee. I had unprotected receptive oral sex three days ago (I'm male). The second I said this, the doctor said I probably have herpes (I think they tested for a UTI and I don't have one). I'm really scared about this. My urine is also cloudy I think. The pain also seems to be moving throughout my urethra. It hurt at the base last night, it hurt in the middle during the day, and now it's hurting at the tip. Is this definitely herpes or is there a chance it's something else? She used a swab in my urethra to do a test for herpes, but I wanted a second opinion while I'm waiting.

Symptoms:  Burning when I pee, cloudy urine
