Stinging after Sex

I lost my virginity about 2months ago and since then whenever i have sex i feel a stinging pain when i urinate for a few days which leaves me feeling like i still need to go. This is usually followed by some blood. This only occurs when i am not on my period. I have sex about twice a week.

You probably have a urinary tract infection, i.e. bladder infection, also called cystitis.  UTIs are not sexually transmitted, but sex often triggers them; for many generations the term "honeymoon cystitis" has been used to describe UTI that comes on during periods of new or increased sexual activity.  The symptoms also could be due to chlamydia or gonorrhea, but UTI is most likely.

You need to see a health care provider, who will do a urinalysis and probably will prescribe an antibiotic.  Do it soon; delay risks the infection ascending up the urinary tract to the kidneys, which is more serious.  Make sure you also request tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia.

Good luck--  HHH, MD
