Patient : Everytime I have sex with my girlfriend afterwards it burns when I pee. She doesn't have any problems. I drink cranberry juice and it will go away but returns when we have sex. What could this be?
The most probably cause of your burning sensation while passing urine may be due to cystitis caused due to a urinary tract infection. This is usually caused by an ascending bacterial infection from the urethra. The first line of treatment is antibiotics. A urinalysis may help to detect the presence of infection. Drinking plenty of water will help to flush out the bacteria in the urine.
