Most of us never think too much about the dos and donts of intercourse.
It is very important to keep your private parts healthy and clean. Most
of the infections that occur down there is because of unhealthy habits
that one follows. And here are 8 things that you should totally do after
making love. By doing so, you are helping your private part stay
healthy and away from any kind of infections.
1. GO TO TOILET AFTER I!NTER.COURSE
Number one: do a number one. During intercourse, bacteria can be
introduced into your private part. It’s warm and moist inside there,
which is the perfect environment for bacteria to multiply. If you don’t
want to end up with a painful bladder infection, pee within an hour of
having intercourse, which helps to flush out your private part. And of
course, wipe from front to back to avoid faecal contamination.
2. AVOID HOT BATH TUB SHOWER
Shower is good however avoid jumping into a hot bath tub. When your V
(vagina) responds to stimulation, it opens a little more. And after
intercourse, a hot bath tub shower can make you susceptible to more
3. CHUG A PINT OF WATER
Just like with exercise, you may need to hydrate after making love.
Dehydration affects your entire body, so if your mouth is dry, you
definitely need to refuel with water. Chug a pint or two of water right
after intercourse,it will hydrate you and help flush pesky UTI-causing
bacteria from your bladder.
4. EAT FOOD THAT IS RICH IN PROBIOTIC
What you eat after having intercourse is very important. I know those
chocolate chip cookies in the jar look tempting, but we advise you to
choose your snack wisely. Your best option is fermented foods such as
yogurt for instance. Kombucha and kimchi make healthy alternatives.
Eating these as a snack after intercourse can restock good bacteria so that you don’t get yeast infections.
5. AVOID SOAP DOWN THERE
Not just after intercourse (although your V is particularly sensitive
then), but always: don’t wash with soap. Your nether region is a
self-cleansing organism and using soaps, douches or other products can
interfere with its delicate pH levels. Soap can also lead to irritation
and dryness – in fact, as a rule of thumb, if you wouldn’t put it in
your mouth, don’t put it near your private part. After intercourse (and
always), rinse only with warm, clean water.
6. DITCH THE CUTE LINGERIE
Most types of lingerie are made from non-breathable fabrics like nylon
or polyester. Slap them on after intercourse, and you’re creating the
perfect environment for germs to grow. Remember, your V is warm and damp
after getting down, and that’s when bacteria is likely to thrive,
especially when trapped by non-breathable materials. Go commando or
stick to cotton undies so your nether regions can breathe free.
