The burning sensation you feel when you pee may be a sign that something is wrong. The good news is that it's usually a treatable condition, like a urinary tract infection (UTI). But you need to talk to your doctor right away so they can help you feel better and get the treatment you need.
When you have to pee, muscles in your bladder tighten, and a muscle called the sphincter relaxes so that pee can exit your body through a tube called the urethra. But if your bladder muscle contracts too much or doesn't contract enough, it can overpower the sphincter muscles. Then, pee can leak out of your bladder, into your urethra and all over the place.
One theory about why peeing hurts at the end is that it activates your body's parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for "rest-and-digest" functions. When you go to pee, your blood pressure lowers, which may cause this reaction.
Many women, especially young women, feel pleasure when they delay urination by touching their vulva. According to family nurse practitioner Patricia Geraghty, PhD, FNP-BC, WHNP, this feeling is likely due to the structure of a woman's anatomy. The urethra is located between the nipples and the vulva, which makes it a sensitive area that can be stimulated by the fingers or toy of a sexual partner.
Peeing after sex may give women this pleasure, but it's not healthy in the long run. The urethra is the power washer for the bladder, and if bacteria are left in the urethra they can enter the bladder, causing pain and discomfort. The simplest way to avoid this is to use a reliable form of birth control.
