okay lately ive been having this burning sensation whenever i urinate but it continues to go throughout the day and it's been going on for about two weeks now. I'm wondering what it could possibly be, and what I can do to help it because it's driving me insane and i'm missing school because of it. thank you in advance for your answer.

Sounds like you might have yourself one doozy of a Urinary Tract Infection/Kidney Infection.

Get yourself to the doctor ASAP. In the meantime, drink cranberry juice (with the lowest amount of sugar you can find) or take cranberry capsules (which you can find at most grocery stores or Health food stores. Drink plenty of water, too.

Many times, UTI's can be cause by not emptying your bladder before and after sex. During sexual activity, it is easy for bacteria to get pushed up the urethra (where urine comes out) and cause problems, by voiding your bladder after sex, you rinse out the bacteria.

Like i said, get yourself to the doctor ASAP, because if that infection gets into your kidneys, the pain can be quite intense...
