You know that heavy feeling you get right after having s.e.x, and the only way to relieve it is going to the toilet?

UTI is an infection in any part of your urinary system, which includes your kidneys, bladder, ureters, and urethra, according to WebMD. And if you’re female, the chances of getting it are much higher.
Symptoms of UTI include a burning feeling when you pee; frequent or intense urge to pee; cloudy, dark or strange-smelling pee; pain in your lower back or abdomen.
