Painful urination often accompanies venereal diseases.When, during unprotected sex, a man becomes infected from an infected partner, the bacteria enter the urethra. Microorganisms cause inflammation of the urethra.That is, venereal disease develops specific urethritis.However, the clinical picture of the disease will have characteristic features depending on the infectious agent.
