Women have very short urethras, compared with males. Because of this, acts like sex which push bacteria into our urethras, can put us at a higher risk for getting a urinary tract infection.
If you want to make the odds higher of getting a bacterial infection, trying having sex in a hot tub and having anal sex or any sort of ass play.
If you were less than spotless of butt and/or your man didn’t don a glove before plundering your ass-palace, that furthers the risk of bacterial infectional in the cases where fecal matter enters your vagina.
Peeing flushes out bacteria, making it a smart thing to do after sex, especially if you’re a person who is prone to UTIs.
There’s no ticking clock to when you should pee after sex if you are prone to urinary tract infections. Like, you don’t need to flee the afterglow, just try to go at some point soon after. Holding in your pee is much worse than NOT peeing after sex, because it can increase the amount of bacteria up in your bits and make UTIs even worse!
Keep that i mind … and if you feel the need to pee during sex, after sex, or like even during the day when no sex is being had always go to the bathroom!
What does a UTI feel like?
If you have to ask yourself if you’ve never had a UTI then you have never had a UTI. The symptoms are absolutely brutal. You can feel tired and shaky, and in the cases where it effects your kidneys (a thing it totally can do) it can even cause a fever.
Other UTI symptoms include frequent urination, a burning feeling every time you, feeling like you have to pee and nothing coming out, dark colored urine and intense pain in your lower back and abdomen.
A UTI starts in the bladder but if left untreated it can progress to your kidneys causing the more painful symptoms.
Some people are more prone to UTIs than others.
“Some people may have risk factors that make them get UTIs such as diabetes, kidney stones, or abnormalities in the urinary tract,” says Mamta Mamik, M.D. If you get mor than three UTIs a year, you should talk to your doctor as you a member of the frequent UTI club.
If you never pee after sex and you keep on having a healthy vagina and bladder you don’t need to change your sex habits and start peeing now. As long as you are keeping hydrated, peeing regularly and are otherwise healthy, consider yourself off the hook when it comes to urinating after sex.
