It may be that the urethra (opening into the penis) is slightly inflamed. It is good to empty the bladder after intercourse. In your case the urine seems to be ‘washing’ the urethra out. It sounds like you should have check-up and urine test to make sure you don’t have any underlying infections that could be causing this. For more information visit SA Sexual Health Assoc website:
