Hello Giggles is a positive online community for women (although men are always welcome!) covering the latest in culture, female empowerment, style, relationships, friendship, careers, and issues that matter most to young women’s lives.
The author, Arielle Tschinkel, quotes Heather Jeffcoat in the new article "11 weird things that can happen to your body after sex", including:
If you feel a little burning or stinging when you pee right after sex (and you are alwayspeeing right after sex, right?), your first instinct might be that you have a urinary tract or sexually transmitted infection. But actually, minor burning and stinging is pretty common, provided that it goes away within a few hours.
Women that experience the sensation of a urinary tract infection, but without the presence of an actual infection, are also typically experiencing the burning or urinary urgency and frequency due to an overactive pelvic floor,” explains Heather Jeffcoat, pelvic floor physical therapist and author of Sex Without Pain: A Self-Treatment Guide to the Sex Life You Deserve.
