    Frequent intercourse can cause inflammation of the area and surrounding tissues. Small breaks in the tissue can occur as well. The burning and soreness is because of this. The urethra can be swollen causing pain full urination. As jns says, latex allergy, creams, even your lube could cause a reaction. Feeling cold is usually a reaction to a fever. The fever is usually a reaction to a virus or bacterium that your body is fighting. You may have cystitis or a UTI. Talk to your doctor and make sure you don't have any type of infection - this is very common.

This lasts for 4 hours and then everything is as if nothing ever happened.. (But those 4 hours are like going through hell, when it's possible I lock myself inside the bathroom the whole time, but when I'm at uni for example and have classes etc. it's a disaster )
    What is this ?
    I've tried everything, washing before & after intercourse, urinating before & after,lotions, taking cranberry pills.. Nothing seems to work...
    What could this be ?
    I would truly appreciate any helpful advice !
    Some people have reactions to latex condoms. Some people have reactions to the specific bacteria on their partner's body. Have you asked your partner about his body care habits. He may be using a lotion or something once a week.
