  • Acute urinary retention secondary to urethral inflammation from a vaginal contraceptive suppository in a 17-year-old boy UROLOGIA INTERNATIONALIS Saborio, D. V., Kennedy, W. A., Hoke, G. P. 1997; 58 (2): 128-130


    We report the case of a 17-year-old boy who developed acute urinary retention following unprotected intercourse. His partner employed for the first time a nonoxynol-9-based commercial vaginal contraceptive insert. During intercourse the patient felt severe burning pain in the urethra. He was subsequently unable to void. Flexible cystourethroscopy revealed gross mucosal erythema and inflammation in the distal urethra and navicular fossa. We discuss the clinical management and review relevant literature.
