I just recently went on the pill and started to have sex with my boyfriend without using condoms. Intercourse is fine, but after he ejaculates inside me I get a painful burning sensation in my vagina, which gets worse after I go to the bathroom (it gradually subsides in about half an hour to an hour). This has happened twice. One time, we had unprotected sex but he ejaculated outside of me, and I didn't have this problem...so I feel it's directly semen-related. Any idea what might be causing this? Could I be allergic to semen, or maybe I'm just irritated from the intercourse? Should we try using lube? I'm trying to talk my boyfriend into going back to condoms, it was so much easier! And sex is really not enjoyable for me now... Crying or Very sad

Yes, you need lube!

You're probably getting a little raw during sex and that's why semen and urination hurts afterward. Did going to the bathroom hurt when you used condoms? I had the same problem, it took me a while to realize condoms have lubricant on them already and so I needed to use more lube than usual after I stopped using condoms.

If it still hurts after you apply lube, then you may want to speak with a doctor.
I hope things get better for you!

I had the same problem when I first started having intercourse without a condom. But it would go away after a little while so I just dealt with it. If it goes away after an hour then you are not allergic to it, but sometimes it just burns. No matter how much lube you use, there are always gonna be micro tears that the semen will get into. But the good news is your body will most likely get used to it. The first time he came inside me it burned really really bad. But after that it started getting less and less and eventually it stopped hurting at all.
