I think I may have a UTI. I have noticed that my urine is kind of cloudy, which I understand is a symptom, though I don't know how "cloudy" is cloudy. It's not just like yellow water, though. I have sex often (sometimes unprotected) with my girlfriend, and I am a straight male. IT does not burn when I urinate. Also, I've noticed an area on the underside of my penis where there's a slightly red blotch - slightly, it's not bright, but it's redder than the other skin on my penis. My testicles are also sort of red some times when I look at the skin under them. I think that the redness under my penis though may just be some kind of sore from too much roughness (masturbating and handjobs a lot). Anyway, Back to the UTI - I don't have a family doctor to go to and I'm embarassed about going to a sex clinic (The only one I know of is Plan Parenthood and I don't even know if they are the right place to go) but I will if I HAVE to.. I'm scared, I heard they have to swab the inside of your penis with a qtip.. I also heard that if you drink lots of water it will just go away. Is that true? Also, can this be something more serious? Or, can a UTI become severe (life threatening) ? I'm scared.. Thank you.
Urinary Tract Infections
You sound normal. I don't think you have an UTI. If you drink lots of water your pee will be clearer. The color of your urine depends a lot on what you eat and even the vitamins that you take.
