hi, im a 19 yr old female, who has recently started experiencing painful urination after sex, it usually starts 3-4 hours after sex and lasts days at a time.... , iv always been prone to bladder infections but they have always been able to be cured with lots of water and cranberry juice. but this pain seems to be coming back after each night of hanky panky with the bf.
what else could this be?
me and the partner always practise safe sex, and iv also been on the pill (monofeme ) since i was 16.
this is however a new partner , and this problem has only been happening whilst with him.
Its very hard to cure uti with home remedies. The only way to be sure youve gotten rid of the infection is with prescribed medicines as much as that *****...
Utis are typically reoccurring specially in the sexually active, this is because during intercourse bacteria and the such can get massaged into the urethra, which is a lot shorter in women making females a lot more susceptible to infection.
You can help prevent utis is urinating before and after sex. urinating immediately after sex is more important than before because it can help flush out any bacteria.
you might wanna evaluate any feminine products your using like sprays or douches, they can irritate the urethra and cause utis. A new lubrication might be cause the irritation to.
reoccurring utis can lead to bladder infections which can cause kidney problems, best to go talk to a doctor and get a urine test.
if you do swing by your doctor, you might also want to get tested for BV(bacterial vaginosis) , another common infection in women that can cause burning while urinating.
