Pain in Vaginal Area

I have been recently treated for a bladder infection which had gone away for a while but seems to have come back with a vengence after sex?!?! Could this possibly not be a bladder infection? Really sore when urinating but only afterwards. Was not sore during sex.

Sex can cause bladder irritation which may result in some burning of urine. It can also predispose to bladder infections. It is advisable to empty your bladder before and after sex, as this may lessen the risk. If the burning lasts for a couple of hours after sex, it is probably just irritation. If it persists, it is likely to be another infection.
