Doctor: Thank you for your question. It is possible to contract and sexually transmitted infection from this type of sexual enco unter. What you have described seems to be a case of urethritis and a concomitant urinary tract infection. Since you have had this for three weeks, we recommend that you promptly follow up with your doctor to have this examined, and start a course of antibiotics to treat this infection. It will also be a good idea to conduct a series of STD testing just to make sure you have not contracted a more serious infection which requires further monitoring and treatment.Thank you for choosing AskTheDoctor.com
