Sometimes it stings a little while i urinate but it's only on one spot on right side of my area... It doesn't hurt. It's very infrequent. Sometimes i don't feel it at all, sometimes i feel it a lot.
i am active, but it doesn't happen after sex.

Hello and thanks for the query.
You seem to be suffering from mild cystitis which means urinary bladder infection.
Cystitis is very common in females as their urethra is short and very near to anus resulting in increased chances of infection.
Since it is mild and happening infrequently,you may use plenty of water to drink and may take some cranberry juice for week to 10 days and see the response.
Normally mild cystitis becomes alright in 10 days however if it doesn't become alright then you may consult your doctor and get the urine tested for urine infection.
If urine infection is found,then you can take a course of antibiotics as prescribed by your doctor and it should make things alright for you.
I hope to have answered your query however you are most welcome to ask any further query.
Best of luck.
