Women, Do These 5 Things After Sex To Avoid Itchiness and Urinary Tract Infections

If you have the drive for sex but usually experience some form of itchy feeling or infections after all is said and done, take note of the following to avoid getting into such experience again.

1. Pee After Sex If You Are Prone To Urinary Tract Infections.

Even if you don't have the urge to urinate after sex, women who usually suffer from frequent Urinary tract infections(UTIs) should visit the washroom, as recommended by Dr Alyssa Dweck, a gynecologist from Westchester, NY, and an author of “The Complete A to Z for Your V”. 

Dr. Dweck indicated when you have intercourse, bacteria from the rectum (an area very close to the urethra and the veejay), can get close to the urethra and cause an infection, especially in females who are prone to UTIs. She indicated the urine washes out the bacteria, that are mechanically present at the end of the urethra.

2. Pop a cranberry supplement.

This is another option for women who tend to come down with a UTI after every sexually related session. 

A once-a-day cranberry concentrate, in the form of a cranberry pill or a gummy available over the counter, may aid in the prevention of UTIs, says Dr Dweck. 

However, she warns against downing sugary cranberry cocktail juices.

3. Wipe down.

If the use of lube, saliva, among many other options, have you feeling less-than-fresh down there after a sexually related session, consider doing a quick wipe down.

It is recommended that you use a non-fragrant soap around your lady parts after intercourse. 

Remember not to use the fragrant soap inside your veejay. This could destroy some essential natural bacteria in there.

4. Soak in the bathtub.

Consider adding extra-virgin coconut oil to a warm bath, to help hydrate the outer skin of the vagina and sooth any vaginal swelling or irritation that occurs after the intercourse.

5. Take in some water.

You should consider sipping some water after the act since dehydration affects your entire body including your vagina.
