I had sex for the second time...
Why did I feel nauseous after sex last night (I woke up and still feel it)?
Why does it burn down there when I pee after sex?
Why do I have diarrhea the morning after sex?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,

Nausea after sex could be caused by dehydration. Sex can take a lot of energy and if you are not properly hydrated you can feel nauseous. I suggest that you drink coconut water. Not only does it have a massive amount of electrolytes for hydration, it has a high percentage of potassium for muscle recovery.

Burning sensation during urination indicates infection which can be easily contracted if you're not staying hydrated. Sometimes infections can go away on their own. But sometimes you need medical treatment. If the burning continues, see a gynecologist.

Diarrhea is unrelated to having sex. However, it can also be linked to improper eating and hydrating habits. Perhaps you have a stomach bug or food poisoning. Maybe you ate a bad combination of foods. Doctors usually recommend you to let it run its course especially if you do not have any vomiting or fever.

All three of these symptoms require proper hydration. Note the color of your urine as well. Normal urine should be clear to slightly tinted. If your urine is yellow, that is an indication that you are not only dehydrated but that you have been dehydrated for some time. This leads to bladder infections, nausea, and perpetuated by diarrhea.

If your symptoms persist after hydrating, see a doctor.

Below I have pasted a link to an article that talks more about bladder infections:

I hope that helps.
