Three Things Women Should NEVER Do After Sex
There are few things that you should never do straight after a passionate liaison.
Getting lucky can cause vaginal tissues to become swollen and more likely to become infected.
If you want to keep your bits in optimum health, you should avoid doing these three things:
Going for a wee after sex isn’t just an old wives’ tale – it really is important.
Popping to the loo helps to clear away bacteria that may have been spread around mid-bonk.
Bacteria is bad news as it can lead to bladder infections – so try and nip to the loo within an hour after having sex.
While you may feel the need to ‘freshen’ up after doing the deed – make sure you don’t use soap.
Lathering up your nether-regions will soapy products can cause irritation and you may even experience an allergic reaction.
Gynecologist Leslie E. F. Page, M.D. told Women’s Health: “When the vaginal tissues have been lubricated, swollen, and rubbed against during intercourse, it changes how that tissue reacts to the environment.
“Primarily, you run a much greater risk of infection.”
“The vagina is a self-cleaning organ, and needs to be treated very, very gently—if you wouldn’t put it in your mouth, you shouldn’t put it in or around your vagina,” adds Leslie.
If you do feel the need to wash – just use water.
Getting in a hot tub
Enjoying a post-coital soak in a hot tub may sound like an enjoyable, romantic experience – but it’s bad news for your lady bits.
“When your vulva swells in response to sexual stimulation, it reveals the opening of the vagina, which means you have a greater chance of infection,” said Leslie.
“If you’re in a hot tub with your partner, that means you’re exposed to the bacteria on his skin and anus.”
