|Doctor Warns Women Not To Urinate Before Sex, See Why by afonjaman: 10:18am On Dec 21, 2017|
It has been a long held view that women should urinate before sexual intercourse for several unfounded reasons. However a American urologist has a contrary opinion and he goes on to explain the medical rationale for such an advice.
Urologist David Kaufman explained the idea females should pee before intercourse is one of the biggest misconceptions he has to address with patients in his clinic.
He stresses that urinating after sex is important, but warns going to the bathroom beforehand is not advisable.
Why shouldn’t you wee before sex?
During intercourse, bacteria from the vagina can get pushed into the urethra.
Waiting to pee, and consequently having enough urine stored up to create a strong stream, increases the odds of pushing that bacteria back out.
Dr Kaufman said that holding on will ensure your bladder is full enough to produce a stream strong enough to help clear any bacteria in the urethra. Without any urine in your bladder, the bacteria can cause an infection.
If you don’t go to the toilet after sex, the bacteria can make its way into the bladder and develop into an infection.
Wowen are generally more susceptible to UTI because of their peculiar Anatomy.
