    Inflamed/Swollen Urethra

    Hey Everyone,

    To provide some background information, I am a college student who just got home from the fall semester. 2 weeks before the semester ended, I had unprotected sex with a girl, and I woke up the next morning with a swollen urethra. During the sex, I specifically remember feeling a lot of friction, but nothing painful. After seeing that my urethra was swollen, I thought maybe I contracted an STI, but it did seem odd that I had no pain peeing nor was there any discharge. As a few days went by, the swelling went down, and everything went back to normal. I ended up having sex with the same girl again about week after our first hookup, but this time with a condom. I woke up the next day and my urethra was swollen again! Just like last time, after waiting a few days, the swelling went down and I did not have any pain peeing. I then left school to come home and I've been worried about this ever since. My urethra swells after I masturbate, and it, again, swelled on New Years when I hooked up with a different girl. I went to the doctor to do an STI test this week, but I feel that I don't have an STI. The doctor recommended that if I don't have an STI, and the problem persists, that I go to a urologist. I'm just worried. Maybe I injured my urethra and it hasn't healed and every time I have sex, I just re-injure it? Has anyone ever had this problem?
