Having sex and having it regularly is important for the body. Regular sex promotes better brain function – it improves memory and concentration, supports the cardiovascular system and the immune system. It is also extremely important for our health to be aware of what happens in our body right after sex.
Pee after sex!
When you reach orgasm, sexual excitement decreases and the body relaxes. You feel pleasantly tired, so you want to rest, to snuggle up to your partner, to feel their touch by caressing their face or hands. Such a ‘moment for yourself’ after sex lasts as long as your body needs to regenerate after intense intimacy. Afterwards, you may want to sleep or take a bath together, which is a very pleasant end to your time together in bed. But remember that it is good to pee as soon as possible before taking a shower or jumping into a bath. Why is it important to pee after sex?
Why is it important to remember?
Peeing after sex has a protective effect on urinary tract infections. This is due to the anatomy of the urethral opening and the anus. During sexual intercourse, i.e. rubbing against the partner’s genitals or touching the intimate area with dirty hands, bacteria in the vaginal vestibule area can easily enter the urethral opening and then the bladder, where they multiply and cause urinary tract infections. Symptoms include pain or burning when urinating, frequent urges to pee, a feeling of a full bladder for a few moments after emptying, and smelly urine or pelvic tenderness. To avoid this, it is important to act preventively and remember to urinate immediately after sex, which effectively cleanses the urethral orifice.
Urinating after sex and contraception!
There is a myth that urinating after sex works as a form of contraception. Again, there is anatomy that very easily refutes the belief that urinating after sex is a method of contraception. The cervix and vaginal vault, where male semen, which is a sticky suspension, collects, are very deep. It is therefore not possible to remove the contents of the vagina, in this case the sperm. It is therefore important to remember that peeing after sex does not protect against pregnancy.
