After my boyfriend and I make love and I want to pee, it stings quite a bit. I was wondering if this is normal.

As per an earlier post, I just took EC but am not on the pill, is it possible it's becasue of that?

It's quite normal, and in fact recommended to urinate before and after sex. This helps prevent UTIs.

Considering it's normal, I doubt the EC has anything to do with this.

Thank you for your reply but is it normal that it stings when I pee after sex?

Stings where?

If it's your vulva that stings, you may have a tiny cut or abrasion ... that should heal on it's own, if you leave it alone for a few days.

If it's your urethra ... Keep a close eye on it. Sometimes i just get a bit of irritation after sex, and the first time i pee stings, but it's fine after that. If it continues after the first few times you pee, you may already have a UTI.
