What is Non-Specific Urethritis?
Non-specific urethritis (NSU), also known as non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU) is not a specific infection or disease but is a generic term for specific symptoms. It can be caused by a number of different infections, the most frequent one being chlamydia. NSU not due to chlamydia may be due to exposure to the herpes virus or normal vaginal or throat organisms. NSU can also be brought on by overly energetic sex or vigorous masturbation.
Anytime Doctor provides a regulated specialist service for people who recognise the symptoms of NSU after having had a previous episode in the past.
All services provided by Anytime Doctor are safe, fast and confidential. You can obtain treatment within the privacy of your home and without the inconvenience of waiting for an appointment.Read more

What are the symptoms of non-specific urethritis?
Women do not usually experience any noticeable symptoms. Men can sometimes also be unaware of symptoms, but are more likely to have symptoms, including:
How effective is non-specific urethritis treatment?
In most cases, NSU (particularly if it is due to chlamydia) is cured by taking a single course of appropriate antibiotics. Occasionally men with persisting NSU may require a second course of antibiotics. Both the one day course and seven day course of treatment for NSU are very effective, the seven day treatment is just cheaper. However, this treatment will not be effective against all causes of NSU such as NSU brought on by overly energetic sex or vigorous masturbation.
How soon can I have sex after non-specific urethritis treatment?
You must not have unprotected sex (sex without using a barrier method) for at least seven days after you have finished your course of non-specific urethritis treatment. This is to ensure you do not pass non-specific urethritis to your partner. It is also recommended that both you and your partner receive treatment to prevent reinfection if they have already been exposed to non-specific urethritis.
Can I order non-specific urethritis treatment for my sexual partner?
If your partner has been exposed to non-specific urethritis, they should also receive treatment to prevent cross- or reinfection of non-specific urethritis. Should your partner also wish to use the Anytime Doctor non-specific urethritis service, they are required to complete their own online consultation.
