Video: Things We Should Always Do After Sex
After having relationships with your partner there are many things that you should consider. Many want to just stay in bed holding each other and this, of course, is an option but there are also aspects to remember:
Hygiene:Try to urinate after each sexual encounter. This will prevent the growth of bacteria near the urethra and therefore "decrease the risk in the urinary tract," as experts say. On hygiene, The Milken School of Public Health at George Washington University, points out that "perfumed soap, which is usually found in hotels or at home, can change the pH of our vagina and is related to the appearance of bacterial vaginosis"; In other words, be careful when you wash your intimate area. In this regard, saying that this does not mean that you should run to the bathroom after having sex, but a time of up to 20 minutes is recommended, according to American obstetrician and gynecologist Lauren Streicher.
Avoid baths and wet wipes: Regarding the wipes, remember that they can accumulate microorganisms. In addition, if there were erotic games after them, try to completely eliminate the remains with water and thus avoid a possible infection.
Intimacy: According to a study published in the Archives of Sexual Health, "staying hugged after sex encourages the creation of a good relationship and also increases satisfaction." In other words, hugs and caresses are extremely important since they increase the bond of union.
Signs that reveal you have had sex
Watch out for pain: Postcoital pain can come for a multitude of reasons. The most important thing is that they monitor you and if you have any questions, go to your gynecologist. Even so, it must be made clear that "it can happen due to a lack of lubrication, a certain posture or an abrupt movement".
Thinking aloud: It may sound strange to you but if you do, you will be neither the first nor the last. When the time comes to share the experience or to talk about it, consider several things. If it was not good, experts recommend talking about it a while later. On the contrary, if it has been something pleasant where we have enjoyed, comment on it and talk about it. In another study published in the Archives of Sexual Health magazine, it is explained that "showing affection towards your bed partner after sex is linked to greater satisfaction, promoting a better relationship."
