For the last two weeks, right aftre I pee I get a burning sensation that lasts for a few seconds. I constantly seem to need to pee, and I constantly have a dull burning pain. It feels like I still need to pee, but just cant if that makes sense. Im not sure if this has anything to do with it, but my boyfriend and I had just had sex right before this started happening, and I also was cycling alot the day after, might it have something to do with that ? Its been like this for two weeks now, its not that its really painful, its just uncomfortable and I'm starting to become concerned, any ideas on what to do ?
It sounds like you may have a UTI, or at least the beginnings of one -- that often results in a burning sensation after peeing, and also feeling like you need to pee when you actually don't.
Intercourse can sometimes cause a UTI or make one worse, because it pushes bacteria into our urinary tract, so that could have to do with it. Also, if you do not drink much water in the day, this can cause similar irritation and sometimes lead to a UTI.
So, make sure you drink lots of water, and we recommend peeing and then washing your genitals with just some water before and after intercourse. If this isn't causing too much discomfort for you, you can see if that helps it go away, but if you'd rather, or if it gets worse or doesn't leave after a couple of days, you should go to your doctor and they'll prescribe an antibiotic to get rid of it.
