Check Out 3 Things You Should Always Do After Sex To Prevent Yourself From Infection

Hello everyone, welcome to my article page once again. Please do well to follow me if you have not done that yet and get more updates and interesting articles to read everyday. In this article, I bring you 3 things you should do after sex to prevent yourself from infections.

Adopting good post-sex hygiene habits may limit the risk of infections and allow a person to feel fresher.

1. Wash Up.

You don't have to hop out of bed and into the shower right away. But gently cleaning yourself after sex can protect men and women from infections, like of the urinary tract (UTIs). Wash the area around (not inside) your genitals with plain warm water. You can try mild soaps, but if you have sensitive skin or you already have an infection, they might dry out or irritate the area. Men with foreskin should gently pull it back and wash underneath.


2. Empty Your Bladder.

During sex, bacteria can get into your urethra, the tube that carries urine out of your body. That can raise your chances of an infection. When you pee or urinate, you flush those germs out. So enjoy some cuddle time with your partner, then head to the bathroom. If you're a woman, when you wipe, do it from front to back to stop the spread of bacteria.


3. Wear Loose-Fitting Clothing.

Hot, sweaty places are the perfect spots for bacteria and yeast to thrive. So wear underwear and clothes that let air in. Women should avoid pantyhose, girdles, and panties that are too tight. Cotton undies work well for men and women. They are more comfortable and absorb moisture which may lead to infection. Or you can skip underwear altogether when you go to bed.
