Thrush: You most likely have thrush,which is a fungal infection and generally not related to sexual activity.Virgins can get thrush.The burn during urination is due to your urine(acidic) coming into contact with the inflamed tissue around the pee-hole(urethral meatus)Your pharmacist can prescribe an OTC cream which will help.(many)If persists see your doctor for management.
