It is usual to have UTI after intercourse.If the symptoms of burning in urination are present and also you need to go loo frequently then they are suggestive of UTI itself.
Drink lots of water daily.
Take Craneberry juice daily.It helps in UTI.
Do not hold urine for long.Evacuate bladder completely as you have the urge to urinate.
Wash your self and pass urine after the intercourse.
If the symptoms persist then consider visiting a Physician for examination and get a Urine test done to see the infection so that appropriate treatment can be started.
