Non-specific urethritis (NSU) is sometimes called non-gonoccocal urethritis (NGU).
It's pathogens can range from E.coli and strep, to staphylococcus. Except for infections, NSU can also be caused by blockage of urethral orifice or urethra, and infection in urinary system or genital system. NSU can be transmitted by unprotected vaginal, anal or oral sex.

Causes of NSU

There isn't one specific cause of NSU. It's usually the result of vaginal, oral or anal sex with a partner who has a sexually transmitted infection such as chlamydia, mycoplasma gentialium and ureaplasma urealyticum, herpes, trichomonas vaginalis, . It's called 'non specific' because with further testing a variety of infections may be identified as being responsible for the symptoms.

Sometimes inflammation to the urethra can be caused by friction (vigorous sex or masturbation) or by inserting objects, applying liquids and chemicals into the urethra.

Symptoms of NSU

Signs and symptoms include:

-white or cloudy discharge from the penis, usually more noticeable first thing in the morning
-pain, burning sensation or difficulty when passing urine
-feeling of needing to pass water frequently
-itching or irritation at the end of the urethra

Western Treatments for NSU

NSU is treated with antibiotics given either as a single dose or a longer course of tablets. NSU can recur.

TCM treatment for NSU

NSU can be cured by proper prescription of Chinese herbs. Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill as a patented traditional Chinese medicine, is developed by Dr. Lee based on an ancient prescription. It is effective in curing urinary tract infection, non-specific urethrisis, and nongonococcal urethritis. Also this is a safe treatment for urethritis without any side effect or drug resistance. Because traditional Chinese medicine can eliminate the direct cause of urethritis such as obstruction of heat and dampness, urethritis seldom recur as long as good hygiene can be kept.
