Question: Sometimes i get burning urniation which is exactly the same as cystitis.
It burns badly and comes out very little, i use all the right vaginal soaps, however its becoming more regular and the other night even woke me up. I always go to the toilet after sexual intercourse to flush out.
Is this due to me not drinking enough water? So my urine is acidy?
Its diffrent to cysitis in the way it doesnt last very long. I will take a couple of ibruprofen and a few glasses of water to wash myself out and my wee goes back to normal. However its getting that regualr i dread going to the toilet due to it possibly stinging.
