6 Causes of Non-STD Burning at the Tip of the Urethra
1. You are not using protection: There are many reasons why you may have non-sterile sexual practices such as unprotected vaginal or penile penetrations with someone else’s blood, sweat, tears, saliva etc.
If you do not use condoms or dental dams during these acts then your risk of getting HIV/AIDS increases significantly. (See “How to Prevent HIV” section)
2. You are having unprotected vaginal or penile penetrations with someone who is infected: A person may contract HIV from a mother to her baby, father to his child, brother to sister, uncle to nephew or auntie.
3. You are sharing needles: Sharing syringes used for injecting drugs with other people increases the risk of contracting HIV/AIDS due to needle stick injuries.
4. You are having unprotected vaginal or penile penetrations with someone who is not infected: Some people have unprotected vaginal or penile penetrations with someone they know but are not sexually active.
This practice is called casual partner. Casual partners do not share needles, do not inject drugs and don’t live together. They just engage in casual activities like kissing, hugging, cuddling and so on.
5. You are getting stuck by used needle or syringe: Needle stick injuries can be prevented by strictly following universal precaution standards.
(See “How to Prevent HIV” section)
6. You are having unprotected vaginal or penile penetrations with someone who is infected and also share needles and allows others to get stuck by used needles: This is the worst case scenario in which you can get infected by any disease your sexual partner carrying.
