Condition analysis:
In the human body, the urethra transports urine from the body to be expelled. The lining of the urethra can become inflamed, resulting in a condition called urethritis.

Both men and women can develop urethritis. MedlinePlus noted that in men, the risk is higher between ages 20 and 35, and in women, the risk is higher during their reproductive years. The University of Maryland Medical Center added that women have a higher risk of developing urethritis compared to men.

Female urethritis has several causes, including injury, bacteria, viruses and sensitivity to certain chemicals, such as the ones used in contraceptive creams or spermicides. Injury-related female urethritis may occur from bruising during sexual intercourse.
