Tip : To avoid this from happening, engaging in foreplay, and massaging the clitoris can help. You can also use lubricants to reduce friction.
The urethra is a narrow tube that carries urine from the bladder and semen from the ejaculatory ducts. These fluids travel along the urethra before exiting the body at the urethral opening in the tip of the penis. Some types of discharge are natural and help protect or lubricate the penis.
Burning or pain during urination may be felt at the opening of the urethra or, less often, over the bladder in the pelvis, the lower part of the abdomen just above the pubic bone. Burning or pain during urination is an extremely common symptom in women, but it can affect men and can occur at any age. See also Overview of Urinary Tract Symptoms.
