Part of taking care of the body is also paying attention to the area down there. Proper hygiene must be practiced to avoid infections and sexually transmitted diseases.
One thing that many women do not know is that they should urinate after s*xual intercourse.
One is at risk of a bladder infection after intercourse as microbes and bacteria tend to accumulate in the private area and the rectum.
As a matter of fact, it is one of the known reasons for urinary tract infection. Also, women have shorter urethras than men, meaning bacteria has easier access for propagation.

“S*x is often associated with UTIs because s*xual intercourse introduces bacteria through the urethra and into a woman's urinary tract,” Alan B. Copperman, M.D. clarified.
You can flush out unwanted harmful organisms through peeing after s*x.
Moreover, according to doctors, as women do not ejaculate the same way as men, the best way to remove secretion during penetration is urination. Women should always keep this practice in mind. Though there is no time limit, it is best to urinate within 45 minutes post s*xual activity.
“While urinating before and after s*x clearly decreases the chance of a urinary tract infection, the couple doesn’t need to have a stopwatch,” Dr. Copperman said.

Not urinating after s*x poses many serious dangers to one’s health. Another way to prevent common infections is through using condoms. Remember that once you are infected, many other serious issues can come with it.
Women are at high risk of cystitis so their private area must always be kept clean. It should be washed with water and a small amount of neutral PH feminine soap.
Taking care of your s*xual health will not only benefit you but also your partner.
