I lost my virginity to my boyfriend almost a year ago. Before we had sex, he was tested, and supposedly it was negative for everything. However, the day after we had sex for the first time it hurt to pee, and obviously there was blood. We still have sex regularly, but sometimes I have a burning sensation when I pee, and it smells rather strong. I didn't tell her that I had sex, but I told her about the peeing, and she told me to drink lots of water. It helps somewhat (but then again I don't really like water lol), but other times it's painful. Also, my boyfriend told me today that it burns sometimes when we have sex, andhe's never had that experience before. I'm planning on going to the doctor, but do any of you know what it could be?P.S I used to masturbate with a dildo even though I thoroughly cleaned before and after each use, so could that be the cause?
Should I get tested?
Welcome to A2A, dancexlove! Most likely you have either a urinary tract infection or a yeast infection or both. Both can happen after sex, because bacteria or yeast spores that are naturally on the surface of the skin can get pushed in deeper. However, neither are considered a sexually transmitted disease, and you don't need sex to get them (so having a urinary tract infection or yeast infection doesn't prove anyone has had sex).
You do need to get to the doctor to have it diagnosed. If it's a UTI your doctor will prescribe an antibiotic; if it's a yeast infection the treatment is usually a cream, and both you and your boyfriend should use it.
Thanks a bunch, that really eases my anxiety about the whole issue. I have had a yeast infection before, and now that I think about it, it's the exact same symptoms as it was when I was younger(even though I wasn't sexually active when I had the yeast infection)
