This is an advice that you have heard about many times, is probably not correct, and even can be counted. More women have heard that they should empty the bladder before se@ual relation to reduce the risk of development of the infections of the urinary tract. But, judging by everything, according to urologists, this is actually the opposite of what we should do.
Going in the toilet before s@x is under a huge “NO”, but urinating after s@x is very important.
During s@x, the bacteria from the vagina may go to the urethra. Urinating may move the bacteria, but if you do not need to go into the toilet immediately after s@x, the bacteria may be on the way to the bladder and to develop an infection.
How to prevent infection?
The use of the diaphragm as contraceptive can increase the risk of getting the infection, because it can push the bladder and to prevent its emptying in completeness. However if you use it, you may think of any other method of contraception.
Some lubricants that are found in the condom, can lead to irritation also, which can lead to infections. If you think that this is the case, try to use condoms without lubricants.
– Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration and to help the bacteria to be eliminated through the urinary tract.
– Go to the toilette as soon as you feel you need to urinate, better than to retain urine.
– Brush from the front to the back.
– Keep good hygiene and wash the genitals daily, as well as before and after s@x.
– Empty the bladder after s@x.
