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.

Note that long -standing or recurrent thrush infections are best managed by your doctor ,who will investigate the cause of recurrences,which could be as simple as diet,the type of soap you use,or glucose problems or immune related problems to mention a few.
