When it comes to sex there’s plenty of common misconceptions, especially when it comes to urinating before sex.
Up until now we’ve been given the impression that it’s a good idea to pee before and after having sex, but urologists claimed that this is the exact opposite of what should be doing.
Going to the bathroom before sex should be avoided, but urinating after sex is preferable.
During sex, bacteria from the vagina can enter the urethra, and urinating after sex can flush out the bacteria. If you don’t go to the bathroom after intercourse, the bacteria may already be on the way to your bladder.
How To Prevent Urinary Tract Infections?
Using a contraceptive diaphragm can actually increase the risk of infections as the tool can cause pressure on the bladder and prevent complete elimination. If you use it often, it may be time to consider other contraceptive methods. Some of the lubricants that come packed with condoms can cause irritation and lead to infections, so you need to avoid them and use condoms without lubricants.
– To prevent UTIs it’s important to stay hydrated, drinking plenty of water throughout the day is excellent in maintaining overall health.
– Always go to the bathroom whenever you feel the need and avoid holding the urge back.
– Go to the toilet as soon as you feel the need to empty your bladder.
– Stay hygienic by washing your genitals daily and before sex.
