Yes, you just had an amazing sex with your love ones (or maybe just someone, anyway, no judgement). You may be thinking that cuddling up and just get to bed right after would be the best closure of the night. It is not wrong to have that thought, and it is true that the cuddles after sex is so comforting. But girl you need to be more cautious than that.
What I am trying to say is, before you go into hours of sticky sweat cuddling or sleep, there are 5 things that you need to do, in order to make sure there is no "messy end".
[ 1 ] Once you are done, take a piss
Urinating after sex is very important as it can prevent women from developing urinary tract infections (UTI). According to New York City urologist David Kaufman, MD, when women urinate after having sex, it can removes any bacteria that may have entered their vaginas. Drink up a large amount of water after sex is highly recommended as well, according to Kaufman.
[ 2 ] Cleanse yourself gently
A quick, gentle wash works magic. Try use warm water and a mild frangrance-free soap to gently cleanses your vulva. Avoid using a fragrant soap or vaginal washes in this case, as it may cause irritation. Another thing to avoid is, vaginal douching, which may lead to vaginal itching, swelling and painful sex among other things. Once you are done washing up, pat it dry before you head back to bed.
[ 3 ] Double check for signs of bleeding or pain
Do not take these minor signs for granted. According to Dr Sheeva Talebin, a fertility expert, any abnormal bleeding or discharge after having sex, "could be a sign of infection or a lesion of your reproductive tract." If you found out any of these signs, quickly speak with your gyneacologist.
[ 4 ] Cranberry juice is your best friend
You've heard it right. Try drinking Cranberry juice after you finished having sex as it can reduce the risks of UTI. It was proven that Cranberry juice helps to fight against bacteria and since it does not get broken down by your digestive system, it can reach to your urinary tract to help prevent any bacteria from staying on the wall of your bladder.
[ 5 ] Spot check the condom
You might find this disgusting, to check the used-condom. But it is important to see if it is broken. If it broke, the chances of you contracting a STD (sexually transmitted disease) would be increased, as well as the chances of you getting pregnant. Unless you don't mind having those. Also, there are times where vagina for stuck inside the vagina. This is very dangerous as it may cause bacterial infections.
