i'm not sure why but it's hurting when i pee. ....why?!
i recently started having sex with my boyfriend, we were both virgins and we use condoms every time. i have not had any form of sex with anyone other than this one guy.
now when i pee there is a shart stabbing pain towards the end and afterwards (more towards the end not so much afterwards) this is the only time i am really in pain, but i'm talking *pain*!!. its been happening for a few days now and i just can't stand it anymore!!
i dont know if this is an STD, but as i said - condoms and virgins. could it be that i have been injured (during sex?? this is the only time i can think of i have not been hit there at all...)
heeeeeeeeeeelp? cheers. -nifty

Time to see your GYN.

Sounds like a urinary tract infection to me. Condoms don't help avoid those, because what happens is that bacteria gets ground into your urethra when you're rubbing your genitals together, which a condom doesn't cover. Being a virgin before doesn't make a difference: our bodies harbor bacteria all over, even in healthy, STI-free folks.

UTIs are also not always due to sex. You can get them for other reasons. You can usually avoid them though, by being sure to stay hydrated, and by urinating right before and after sexual activity, which helps flush bacetria out. Also, being sure to always wipe front to back is a big help.

They don't go away on their own and can get worse, so it's important you get in ASAP. If that's what you have, it's almost always easily taken care of by a round of antibiotics.
