3 Reasons Why Ladies Should always Pee (urinate) After Intimacy

While urinating (peeing) after intimacy isn't necessarily a bad idea, some people may benefit more from the lower risk of UTI.

Peeing after intimacy is always a good thing, especially for women. Because the urethras of women are shorter than those of men, bacteria can readily enter and cause a urinary tract infection.

Peeing after intercourse may aid in the removal of microorganisms from the urethra.

Infections of the urinary tract

Any portion of the urinary system, including the bladder, urethra, and kidneys, can be affected by a urinary tract infection (UTI). When bacteria enters your urinary tract through your urethra and begins to multiply in your bladder, you have a urinary tract infection. Bacteria can proliferate and create an infection if your urinary tract's natural defenses fail.

The female urethra

The urethra is a tube-shaped structure that aids in the passage of urine from the bladder. The urethras of women are shorter (approximately 2.5 to 4 centimetres) than those of men (about 15 to 20 centimetres). Because bacteria must travel a shorter distance to enter the bladder, women are more susceptible to UTIs. A burning sensation in the urethra when urinating is a common UTI symptom. Because germs can grow in the urine bladder, kidneys, or urethra, this happens.

The bladder

Your private part is directly influenced by your bladder health. The bladder is a muscular, hollow organ that stretches to hold urine and is placed between your pelvic bones. As your bladder fills with urine, the muscles relax, but once it's full, it sends signals to your brain to empty it.

Bacteria can enter your urethra during intimacy, increasing your risk of illness. This is why it's crucial to always pee after intercourse since it flushes the germs out.

When you have intimacy with a full bladder, you're more likely to develop stress urine incontinence. Weak pelvic floor muscles and/or a weak urethral sphincter induce this disease. During any activity that causes pressure on the bladder, such as coughing, exercising, laughing, sneezing, or having intercourse, the bladder might leak urine.
