NSU (Non-specific urethritis)
NSU is a very common Sexually Transmitted Disease and only occurs in men. Women who have unprotected sex with a man infected with NSU are at risk of contracting Chlamydia and other infections. Symptoms, if they do arise, will appear about a week after exposure. NSU is curable.

Painful and frequent urination, white discharge from the penis, and pain near the urethral opening are possible symptoms of NSU.

Vaginal, anal, and oral sex without using protection can put one at risk of contracting NSU. This infection can also be caused by Chlamydia, so regular STD check-ups are a necessity for those at risk.

A swab test or urine analysis can detect NSU.

Medication is used to treat NSU.
