Before we have sex, we do several things to ensure a positive encounter. We forget that what we do after that can save us from a lot of pain. After sex, here are a few things that every woman should attempt.
1. Take a bathroom break
Seriously. You’ve probably heard this before, but it’s value repeating because it’s crucial. Getting out of bed and taking that little stroll to the bathroom after sex may seem difficult, but it could save you a lot of discomforts. Bacteria can be found in almost any situation, and these germs can migrate closer to the urethra thanks to penetration during intercourse. Because women’s urethras are shorter than men’s, bacteria can more easily reach the bladder, and women are more vulnerable to urinary tract infections due to this. After sex, peeing helps flush some of these bacteria out of the urethra, lowering the risk of a urinary tract infection. It’ll only take a minute for you to return to cuddling after you’ve peed.
2. Drink Plenty of Water
Sexual activity is a form of exercise, and you’re exerting physical effort regardless of the position you’re trying. Dehydration can occur if you don’t drink enough water after strenuous activity. You are so hydrating yourself after sex is as vital as hydrating yourself after a workout. It will also assist you in passing urine rapidly and flushing out some germs that cause UTIs.
3. Maintain a Clean Environment
It’s not a good idea to use scented soap down there, but a fragrance-free soap can be beneficial. To help eliminate infection-causing bacteria, clean the area around your vagina after each sex. clean the area gently with a soft, clean cloth dampened with soap and water, moving from front to back. The vagina has a cleaning system, and thus there is no need to clean it internally. However, ensure that the area that is visible to you is completely cleaned.
