UNPROTECTED INTERCOURSE WITH A NEW PARTNER
The symptoms you're describing could be related to urethritis -- an inflammation or irritation of the urethra. Urethritis could be caused by many things, including a sexually transmitted disease (STD) like chlamydia (usually has no symptoms in women), or it may not due to an STD at all (yeast, reaction to lube, even psychological). Getting checked is easy and will help you get the information you need to stay healthy.
Most birth control methods are effective in preventing unwanted pregnancies, but not STDs, including HIV. We recommend double-protection -- protection against both pregnancy and STDs -- so using a condom and birth control together. It is both partners' responsibility to reduce your risks.
To your health,
