Approximately 4 months ago I started getting a burning sensation when urinating, which didn't happen every time I urinated. Sometimes, there would also be a strange odour from the urine. (The pain and smell would not necessarily occur at the same time, seemed to be completely random). In addition I had the urge to urinate more frequently and sometimes it will feel like I need to pee straight after I've been to the toilet. The pain often continues after urination and the general area is often quite painful/uncomfortable constantly for a number of days at a time.
About a month after the symptoms began, sexual intercourse became increasingly painful and I have not been able to have sex with my boyfriend in over 2 months because of the pain.
The urinating symtons come and go (could be fine for a week, then flares up for a week, then fine for a few days before another flare up, etc) and range from pretty mild to severely painful. I had a urine test which showed no infection.
Does anyone have any experience ces with similar symptoms or know what this could be?

Symptoms started around the same time as starting birth control (microgynon) - have decided to stop taking this now but symptoms persist
