Signs and Symptoms of STDs: Burning Sensation When Urinating

A burning sensation when urinating is a common STD sign in men. A burning sensation when urinating may be accompanied by other STD symptoms such as frequent urination, abnormal discharge, swollen or painful testicles, or pain around the opening of the penis.

What STDs Cause a Burning Sensation When Urinating?

Chlamydia and gonorrhea can commonly cause a burning sensation while urinating, unusual discharge, genital irritation, and pain during sex in men. Trichomoniasis (or trich) can also cause similar symptoms, but men are typically asymptomatic for trich. Since these infections have overlapping symptoms, only STD testing can diagnose the problem.

Private STD Testing Provides Answers

If you are experiencing a burning sensation when urinating and may have been exposed to sexually transmitted diseases, it is important to test for gonorrhea or chlamydia. Private STD testing for gonorrhea, chlamydia, trich, and other STDs is available through at home STD testing or private lab testing.
