So me and my girlfriend recently started having sex. It was her first time, not mine.
The first 2 times, she didn't have any issues. We didn't overdo it, left a few days in between (I was on vacation) and there were no problems.
Afterwards however, she started experiencing pain when going to the bathroom (to urinate) and a constant urge without really urinating. Having heard the situation before, I immediately thought it was be a bladder infection. She never got any type of medication, but drank a lot of water (she didn't do that previously), got herself some cranberries and cranberry juice. After a short while she had no more complaints. We would have intercourse a few more times after that without any issues.
Now suddenly, after a while of abstinence (she was on her period), we restarted, and she's having issues once again.
I was wondering what exactly I/we could do to prevent irritation as much as possible. It seems like it's a recurring issue, but not constant. Worth noting that - if I recall correctly - both times happened after I (accidentally) ejaculated inside her. Could this be one of the causes?
Thanks in advance! :)
