A Gynecologist Leslie E. F. Page, M.D. Women’s Health has revealed in details the three things you should never do after s*x for your own safefysafefy
“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.” Leslie said.
According to The Sun, here are the three things to Leslie enumerated you must avoid after having s*x.
1. Soaping up
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.
“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 v*gina,” adds Leslie.
If you do feel the need to wash – just use water.
2. 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 $exual stimulation, it reveals the opening of the v*gina, 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.”
3. Not weeing
Going for a wee after s*x isn’t just an old wives’ tale – it really is important.
Popping to the loo helps to clear away any bacteria that may have been pushed into your vagina 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 s*x.
