Dysuria (painful urination) is a general word that covers urine discomfort. The bladder, urethra, or perineum can all cause pain. The urethra is the tube that transports pee from your body to the outside.

Urination that causes pain is very common. A variety of medical problems can cause pain, burning, or stinging. It's not usually an infection that causes a burning sensation after peeing. This symptom could be caused by something else. When there is no infection present, some less common illnesses can induce a burning sensation after urine.

Here are some major causes of painful urination.

1. Kidney stones

Kidney stones can sometimes induce a burning sensation after peeing. A kidney stone can obstruct the urethra, causing an accumulation of urine. Small kidney stones move through the body and are passed in the urine, which can be uncomfortable. Blood in the urine, pain on either side of the lower back, nausea or vomiting, and hazy or foul-smelling pee are some of the other symptoms.

Kidney stones can be caused by eating too much salt and sugar, being overweight, and not drinking enough water. A person can drink more water to flush a kidney stone out of the body, but surgery may be required if the stone is particularly large or creates an infection.

2. Prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate gland).

Prostatitis, or prostate gland inflammation, is a painful condition that affects men. Prostatitis is caused by a bacterial infection, but it can also be caused by injury, muscle stress, or prostate stones. Swelling around the prostate, which can impact the nerves and produce discomfort, might be caused by an accident or infection.

3. Infections of the urinary tract

A urinary tract infection is accompanied by painful urination (UTI). A bacterial infection can lead to a UTI. Inflammation of the urinary tract can potentially be the cause. Your urinary tract consists of your urethra, bladder, ureters, and kidneys. Urine is carried from the kidneys to the bladder via the ureters, which are tubes. Urinary pain can result from inflammation in any of these organs.

4. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
