I started dating my current bf in june 09 and we started having sex in aug but it seems like a day or 2 after we have sex I get a bladder infection. Its not everytime we have sex but it does occur once a month. I have the burning when I urine and I have the burning bladder and urethra. Ive been to the dr about it before and he told me there was nothing there. I also get it the week before or after I menstrate. If you could explain to me why this happens or how to prevent it I would greatly appreciate it. I am getting frustrated with it. My dr wasnt any help.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

In view of the symptoms which you are already having, it will be good to get the urine analysis done and possibly get the urine culture also done.

We need to rule out the urinary tract infection. The chances of getting a UTI are definitely more after sexual intercourse.

It’s important to pass urine after the sexual intercourse and making a habit of drinking more water. Please do consult a physician for the same.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
