There are certain things all women should ensure to do after a session of s*x. These are some of those things.
After s*x, there are a few things a woman should do to keep healthy, such as these ones…1 • Wipe down with gentle soap and water.
Bacteria from the fingers, mouth, and rectum can increase a woman’s chance of developing yeast or bacterial infection after s*x, says obstetrics-gynaecologist, Sherry Ross. She recommends using a non-fragrant soap to wash the vagina after s*x.
Simply take a warm washcloth and gently dab the area with soap and water (or just warm water), moving from front to back. “Internal cleaning (such as douching) isn’t necessary, because the v*gina has its own internal wash cycle that keeps it clean and balanced, she adds. So, no douches allowed.
2 • Soak in the bathtub.
Besides making you feel like the pampered s*x queen that you are, adding extra virgin coconut oil to a warm bath can help hydrate the skin of the outer vagina and sooth any v*ginal swelling or irritation that occurs after s*x, says Ross. Again, this reduces your risk of infection, she adds.
3 • Drink water.You may need to hydrate after a vigorous s*x, says Dr. Nicole Scott. Dehydration affects your entire body; so, if your mouth is dry and/or your vagina felt like sandpaper during s*x, you definitely need to refuel with water. Right after s*x, drink a pint or two of water. That will hydrate you and help flush pesky Urinary Tract Infection-causing bacteria from your bladder.
