urethral stricture questions
I had chlamydia and waited 2 months before I treated it ( I was out of the country) so now I believe that it caused damage and my urologist told me that my urethra might be inflated.
So they gave me antibiotics which got rid of the chlamydia.
But then I noticed I was still having slight pain and discomfort
Then the urologist examined me and he found the pain was near the tip of my urethra.
He gave me more antibiotics and said if my pain doesnt go away after 14 days of taking the antibiotics then surgery might be needed. I did some research online and found that this problem I have is called urethral stricture.
Anyway, im only 21 and even though I do have some pain and discomfort it isnt that bad. I mostly feel the discomfort AFTER urination like if I put pressure on certain spots of my urethra. Thats really the only thing that bugs me. By the way ive had this for 3 months.
So heres my main question, im going out of the country again to see my girlfriend and we want to have a baby. Will my problem affect my fertility? And is it a dumb idea to keep not doing anything about this (i.e. Get surgery) for another month? Cause ill be away for that long. Or can I wait till I get back?Keep in mind I have not been diagnosed with urethral stricture however all signs are pointing to it.
My second question, if I have surgery to fix it will I get erectile disfunction afterwords?
Is masturbating ok to do while you have urethral stricture?
Thanks for reading I appreciate it
