Peeing right after sex can help prevent the spread of fecal bacteria to the bladder and, therefore, UTIs. This is also why partners should not switch to vaginal intercourse right after an anal. After you read this, you’re sure to make peeing after sex a regular part of your post-coital routine.
BENEFITS OF PEEING AFTER SEX
CLEANS UP CUM
If sex without a condom is your thing, you should definitely be peeing after sex. If you engage in sex without a condom and if you don't pull out in time, there will be a huge load of semen in your vagina and the only way it can come out is when you stand up and are at the mercy of gravity to do the job or when you dab your vagina with tissue. You can push out all the cum by peeing and then cleaning the area. If you pee after sex, you naturally clean up.
Yes, there will be a wet spot issue after the activity, so to avoid it, you can have a towel placed near your bed.
REDUCES CHANCES OF UTI
A Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) for women who have experienced it do know is a nightmare... it is something you'd want to avoid. For those unaware of what it does - It makes peeing painful and causes cramps and lower back pain. It is pretty common as 20% women experience it in some time of their life, and women are 10 times more likely to get UTI compared to men. Almost 80 percent of premenopausal women who contract UTI have had sex 24 hours before getting the infection.
The tube everyone has that allows pee to discharge from the bladder is called the urethra. Because a woman has a shorter urethra than a man does, bacteria needs to travel a shorter distance to get to a woman’s bladder. And if that happens, it could result in a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). Sexual intercourse can cause the bacteria to get into the urethra. Why? Some bacteria remain in the vagina and anus after using the bathroom, and your partner’s penis (or fingers) could introduce bacteria, too. Penetration during intercourse lets some of those bacteria into the urethra, and sex can also irritate your urethra.
Once the bacteria get into the urethra, they could make their way to the bladder. But you can stop that from happening by peeing right after sex. The urine flushes out those nasty bacteria, saving your bladder from becoming infected. So remember to pee after sex to help prevent a UTI.
HOW TO GO ABOUT PEEING AFTER SEX
Have a towel or a tissue handy by the bed when you engage in sex. Love doves can also keep baby wipes. Use it to quickly clean and wipe the semen after sex. It will make the walk to the bathroom more comfortable by helping prevent leakage on the way to the bathroom. It is not necessary to immediately pee after sex, you can cuddle for a while, say 30 minutes or so, before moving to the bathroom.
Important: Do not fall asleep for the night without peeing. If you wait for hours, you risk getting that UTI.
WHEN YOU CAN’T PEE AFTER SEX
Peeing is not something that you can do at will, and it is even more difficult to pee after sex because your body releases a hormone after you have an orgasm, and that hormone makes it difficult to pee. It won’t allow the muscles that control urine to relax. So, even if you try to squeeze out a little pee, it won't completely flush out your system to prevent UTI.
Keep a wet wipe on hand and use it after sex; however, this is only a temporary fix and will not prevent UTI, so peeing afterward is required. Try to pee within 30—45 minutes of the act. Keep yourself hydrated. Make sure you drink enough water throughout the day to allow you to pee every few hours.
NO NEED TO PEE BEFORE SEX
According to urologist David Kaufman, MD, it's always better to pee after sex, as it's better to wait and have a "strong stream" of pee to help push out the bad bacteria. And if you do have to go before sex, drink a glass of water right after. That will help ensure you can pee after sex.
SEX AND HYGIENE
- Clean hands (yours and his), toys, penis, and vagina reduces the likelihood of UTIs or infection.
- Use condoms, even if you are on birth control.
- Having a UTI doesn’t mean you’re an unclean person.
Information (About UTI): UTI can only be in the bladder, but it can also affect the kidneys. The spread of UTI to the kidney is more serious. Peeing is painful when you have a UTI, but it isn't the only symptom; you may have more frequent small amounts of pee, and the pee may be smelly. UTIs that infect the kidneys can cause symptoms such as fever, nausea, and vomiting.
Some women are more prone to getting UTIs compared to others. Talk to your doctors about treatment and prevention methods. Do not delay in seeing your doctor to discuss the issue of UTI, as delaying can lead to more serious complications such as recurring infections, kidney damage, and sepsis.
Another way to avoid UTI is to discuss your birth control method with your doctor; some medications also wash out the good bacteria in your system, so a doctor can recommend the appropriate medication.
