Sex can be so amazing, especially when you want it and when you get it. But there might be some things you do after sex, that can cost you your health, and you don’t even know about it. So I am here to shed some light so you don’t repeat the same mistakes.
1. Not peeing
You’re probably so exhausted after that sex sess with your man and you just lie on the bed like whoosh! But please get your ass up and go to the bathroom Us women we have a shorter urethra that means bacteria will travel its way to your bladder and cause urine infection and so by peeing, you are flushing all that bacteria out.
2. Douching or using oil in your coochie
You don’t have to spray your vagina with gushing water or apply oil. Doing so will actually disturb the natural pH level of your vagina. And this will increase the risk of you getting a yeast infection. Which I believe you don’t want to get after sex. Right?
3. Not wiping your vajayjay from front to back
NEVER wipe your vagina from the back to front, always the other way around. If you don’t do this, you’re actually dragging those bacterias from the rectum to your urethra, which will lead to infections. Yuck!
4. Ignoring the after sex bleeding
It could be a sign of bleeding from the cervix or thickening of the endometrial lining. Go get yourself checked or consult with your gynecologist. Might be something serious
5. Ignoring the post-sex pains
If you feel pain down there after sex, don’t take it lightly. It could be because of fibroids or vaginal dryness.
6. Ignoring your increased discharge
We as women have discharge. It’s pretty normal and everything but if yours looks dark and smells abnormal it may be a sign that you have a yeast infection or the presence of STI. Please visit a gyno asap!
So, please pay attention to the little details before or after sex. Remember that, your health might be at risk and so it’s best to keep an eye out and do what’s necessary.
