You'll need to clean out your genitalia first, so you won't need to jump out of bed and into the shower right away. Use warm, clean water and a mild, unscented soap to easily clean the areas around your private area.
Particularly for women, it's not always necessary to wash your private areas with soap and warm water. It contains bacteria that protect the body and allow for self-cleansing.
According to Medicalnewstoday, there are five healthy ways to avoid infection after s£xual activity:
1. Urinate after s£x
After s£xual contact, women are encouraged to urinate. During the act, microorganisms could enter the urinary tract; therefore, it's critical to get rid of them before they can grow and infect the urinary tract. Consider your birth control method as well; some people find that diaphragms and spermicides both increase the risk of UTIs.
3. Wash your hands
If you want to lower your risk of getting a urinary tract infection, wash your hands right away after intimacy. You could have exposed your hands to bacteria and other pathogens by touching your own or your intimate partner's genitalia. By washing your hands, you can reduce the spread of infections.
4. Put on light clothing
You can put off doing this step until after you've had a chance to clean up. After intimacy, if you start to perspire, you should definitely calm down and take it easy. If you're wearing constrictive apparel or unsightly undergarments in this situation, your skin won't be able to ge enough air.
To stop yeast and bacteria from forming, it is advised to wear loose clothing, cotton undergarments, and textiles that wick moisture away from the body. You can even sleep in your cozy nightgown without any underwear on if you're going to bed immediately.
5. Drink cranberry juice
Cranberry juice can be consumed after s£xual activity to lower the risk of UTI. Cranberry juice is antimicrobial, according to studies.
Since it is not metabolized by your digestive system, it can reach your urinary tract and stop bacteria from sticking to the bladder wall.
