Burning urination after drinking alcohol
Posted on: 10/15/2002
well, quite dumb question, after i drank 2 or more alcohol beverages, after masturbation it feels that if i were to go urinate again and again, it sorta burns, even after intercourse, how's a good way to prevent this or help it go away quickly?
Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning that it makes you have to pee. This might explain why you feel like you have to pee again and again. From your question it sounds like the burning only happens after you've been drinking, but if you are having burning frequently with ejaculation or urination, it may be the sign of an infection which needs to be evaluated by your doctor. If drinking causes the problem, I would recommend not drinking before masturbating or having sex.
