  • Young women are often told by her friends or sometimes by her mother to pee after sex, specifically after vaginal intercourse or other penetration. The purpose of this recommendation is to decrease the likelihood that they will develop a urinary tract infection.
    Urinary tract infections are unquestionably associated with sexual intercourse and it is so well known that sexually associated UTIs are sometimes referred to as "honeymoon cystitis" - inflammation of the bladder. One of the major reasons that intercourse is thought to be associated with UTIs is that penetration can put pressure on the urethra. This can irritate the urethra or force bacteria up into the urethra and towards the bladder. In turn, this raises the likelihood of infection, because the urethra is right behind the vagina. However, there has been some research suggesting that anal intercourse is also associated with increased UTI risk.
    Sexual hygienic factors for increased risk of urinary tract infections is voiding, or peeing, within 15 minutes after intercourse. The theory is that peeing after sex can flush any bacteria out of the urethra and into the toilet. There are some studies that did not find any relationship between peeing after sex and UTI risk. However, peeing after sex was either neutral or helpful and sometimes very helpful. Urinating after sex is a potentially helpful activity that doesn't have any clear downsides.
    For men - people with penises to pee after sex is not very much required compared to women with vaginas. This is because there are big differences between male and female genital anatomy. It is relatively rare for men to get urinary tract infections. In general, the longer male urethra means it is less likely for bacteria to get up into the bladder and cause a problem.
    In addition, the penile urethra, through which men urinate, is also the tube through which they ejaculate. Therefore, if the man ejaculates during intercourse, it empties itself out. That doesn't mean it is a bad idea for men to pee after sex. It is just less required than it is for women.
    Urinary tract infections are not fun. If you have a history of recurrent urinary tract infections, it is probably worth trying to find out whether some relatively simple behavioural changes can reduce the frequency with which you get UTIs.
    Even though the results are not completely consistent, it is probably a good idea to pee after sex. It is also a good idea to stay hydrated. Drinking water after sex is another thing that has been shown to reduce risk of a UTI. Interestingly, it looks like peeing before sex might also help reduce the risk of a UTI. And, if you drink enough water, you can pee both before and after sex. The trick is not to drink so much that you want to stop to pee during sex.

  • Yes that’s good. That cleans out the unpure things and any kind of semen that remains in your V

    • Are you trying to tell me you pee out of your vagina? I think you need an anatomy lesson.

    • @Straight_Shooter you tryna be dumb or you really are?

    • @Barbara1402, technically he is correct. You pee out of your urethra, which is a separate hole to your vagina.
