2. Different Types

There are two main types of urethritis, each of which will be caused by something different. One type is gonococcal urethritis, which makes up about 20 percent of all cases of urethritis. This variety is caused by the same bacteria that causes gonorrhea, the sexually transmitted disease.

Urethritis cases that are not caused by the gonorrhea bacteria are known as nongonococcal urethritis. There are numerous potential causes of this, one of which is chlamydia. In addition to infections, it is also possible for urethritis to develop because of injury or some other kind of irritation to the urethra. It is also possible for urethritis to be caused by more than one factor simultaneously.
