One of the habits many women are fond of is urinating before they have sex.
To them, it is a way of cleaning up the vagina (bladder) before the sex, probably also to prevent themselves from urinating in error due to the intense pleasure of sex.
The truth however is that they are putting themselves at more risk by urinating BEFORE having sex.
Well, scientists say the best time for a woman to urinate is actually after sex, immediately after if possible.
As was explained by a New York City urologist, David Kaufman, MD, urinating after sex, not before, helps remove bacteria from the urinary tract, thereby saving the woman from infections.
“Bacteria have tiny pili that act as Velcro hooks, which allow them to attach themselves to the urethral lining,” Kaufman told Yahoo Health.
If these bacteria are left there, they move into the bladder where they quickly reproduce and grows, leading to a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) with serious consequences.
What this means is that it is better to leave the urine in your bladder so that you’ll have enough to push out the stubborn bacteria after you are done with sex.
This simple thing – urinating AFTER, not BEFORE sex – can save you!!!
