Urethritis has many causes, but sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, ureaplasma, HSV and trichomonas are the most common. Urethritis can be passed through vaginal, oral, and anal sexual contact. This includes both penetrative sex and sexual activities where there is an exchange of body fluids or skin-to-skin contact.
If urethritis is treated early, there are usually no other health problems but if left untreated, it can lead to severe complications.
