As with most posting you give so little information that I have to guess if you are a man or a woman, whether you have sex with men, women or both, so I am assuming quite a lot here.

Continual or frequent pain with urination usually signifies a urinary tract infection, or a sexually transmitted disease. However, infrequent discomfort in urination following intercourse may be due to a number of different things. You may be experiencing an allergic reaction to a specific spermicide which is present on a condom, or to a lubricant that you may be using. You can try condoms with different spermicides, or different lubricants to see if this may be the case. Pain with urination after sex can be common if you have a full bladder during sex. Try emptying your bladder right before you have sex, and see if that works for you in alleviating pain. Another possible cause is a condition called "lover's nuts", which occurs if you stay in high arousal for a long period of time prior to ejaculating-everything can be painful afterwards including urination. To be on the safe side, you should see a health provider, discuss your symptoms, and be checked for common sexually transmitted diseases and urinary tract infections, in addition to making these minor changes in your sexual habits.
