Dysuria is when you experience pain or a burning sensation when urinating. Although this condition can affect both
men and women, it is more common in women. This is often linked to urinary tract infections.

You could be at higher risk of dysuria if you:
∙Have any type of bladder issues
∙For women, if pregnant
The most common symptom of dysuria is the burning sensation when peeing. Along with this is the stinging and
itching. To properly diagnose your dysuria, you also need to identify when the pain occurs. Of it is before or after
you urinate. Usually, when the pain occurs at the start of your urination, it is a s symptom of a urinary tract
infection. When the pain occurs at the end of your urination, it can be an indication that you have a problem with
your bladder or prostate. For men, the pain can remain in your penis before and after you urinate. While for
women, the pain can either be internal or external. If the pain comes from outside your vaginal area, it can be an
inflamed or irritated skin. If the pain is internal, it is a sign of a urinary tract infection.
When you feel pain when urinating, and you see your medical provider, your doctor will need to know your full
medical history. You will need to let him/her know about your previous and present medical history. Together with
your medical provider, you also need to determine if you have an STI (sexually transmitted infection) as it could be
the cause of your pain. If there is no sign of STI, additional tests will be done (for men) to check the status of your
bladder or prostate. A sample will be taken (for women) from the lining of your vagina or urethra to check for any signs
It is important to note that dysuria is a symptom and not an illness. This symptom causes an uncomfortable
sensation when peeing. If you have this symptom, work closely with your medical provider to determine if it is
related to your urinary tract, prostate, or bladder. Whichever the case is, the sooner you start treatment the
better, to avoid further complications and further progression of your condition.
