iv just woken up to a very discomforting pain. i had a tingling sensation and when urinating has increased in sensation, i went back to bed still feeling like i needed to urinate and when i did it was just a little bit. the tingling has now subsided slightly but i still feel it. i can feel a shooting tingle up to my belly button inside me and constantly feel like i need to wee.

a few weeks ago i woke up 2 mornings in a row after urinating with a burning sensation down there, i thought it was thrush but it went away. however i have recently visited my boyfriend for valentines weekend and it has just occurred could this be related?

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.
