Written by Mind & Health

After having sex and having reached the climax of orgasm, you have the impression of floating. You feel relaxed and satisfied and are filled with a feeling of well-being and relief. Your heart rate decelerates, your muscles relax and the endorphins begin to make their effect and make you want to bask and doze off.

Each woman being unique, the body reaction of each differs as a result of a carnal relationship. Some have only one desire after reaching the apotheosis is to fall asleep in the arms of their man, others want to share this moment and take the opportunity to confide on the pillow while the more greedy people already want to start again.

Whatever your category, there are rules of hygiene that must be respected after having sex to avoid any risk of infection. Contrary to popular belief, correct personal hygiene does not involve scrubbing and soaping. The skin at the level of the intimate area is particularly sensitive and must be treated with delicacy. Here are the rules of hygiene to respect after making love.

Do not wash your private parts with soap

The genitals of the woman are self-cleaning, so it is not necessary to use soap, it is even recommended to avoid it. The soap can cause an allergic reaction or irritate your intimate area and cause vaginal dryness. Washing the inner part of your intimate area with soap may damage your vaginal flora, weaken it and increase the risk of infection or it allows the process of self cleaning.
The best way to clean this part of your body is to rinse it with clear water simply.

Do not forget to urinate after a report

When you make love with your partner, it causes a rise in bacteria in the urethra that then reach the bladder and cause urinary tract infections. Urinating after sexual intercourse can clean these organs and expel microbes outside the body. This is called the “flush” effect.

This simple and yet essential gesture also helps prevent the appearance of fungal infections. Most women want to urinate after a report, but for those who do not feel like it, force yourself, your health is at stake!

Do not wear synthetic underwear

After having sex, your body is still hot and wet, so are your intimate parts. Wearing a nylon or polyester undergarment could cause fungal infections and make this area a breeding ground for bacteria.

It is strongly recommended to wear cotton underwear that will allow your vaginal wall to breathe and not smother. If the report took place at bedtime or during the night, it is best to sleep naked to allow time for the parts of your body to return to a “normal” temperature.

Do not slip into a jacuzzi

Despite the appeal of a hot tub after exercise, it is strongly discouraged to take a hot bath in a jacuzzi after making love. Even if relaxing with your partner seems tempting, be aware that in these specific circumstances the jacuzzi can be a nest of bacteria and a breeding ground for infections.

Sexual stimulation inflates the vaginal mucosa and promotes the opening of the vaginal walls, which means that the risk of infection is high. Especially as sharing the bath with your partner increases the exposure to bacteria that emanate from your skin and genitals.

Do not use intimate wipes

As stated at the beginning of this article, the vaginal flora is self-cleaning and does not require internal washing because it is fragile. On the other hand, you can use an intimate gel with a mild pH to perform a delicate soaping of the external part.

If you are a follower of intimate wipes, know that if you use them right after a report this can have consequences, especially if you are sensitive to certain substances such as alcohol. In this case, the wipe can be a source of irritation, redness and swelling.
