Sexual DictionaryDictionary of the F-Word
urethritis:An inflammation of the urethra that can be caused by mechanical injury (from a urinary catheter or a cystoscope), by an irritating chemical (antiseptics or spermicides), or by an infection. Infectious urethritis is usually classified into two categories: gonococcal-urethritis , caused by gonorrhea bacteria; and nongonococcal-urethritis (NGU), caused by bacteria other than gonorrhea bacteria.
