AN expert urologist has lifted the lid on one of the most common sex sins
URINE TROUBLE: Always save your toilet trips for after you go to the toilet
Using the loo before you have sex could be having serious impacts on your health.
None of us want to be bursting for a wee during our most intimate moments, but there’s a good reason why you should hold off until after.
Dr Kaufman, a urologist who works in New York, revealed that your toilet habits can either prevent or cause urine infections.
In an interview with Yahoo News, the medical expert revealed that the idea that you should pee before sex is “one of the biggest misconceptions he has to clear up for his female patients”.
As bacteria builds up in the urethra during intercourse, you need to store enough bodily fluids to flush it out of the vagina.
If you don’t go to the toilet after enjoying a romp, these nasties can make their way into your bladder.
When this bacteria transfer occurs, you run the risk of contracting a UTI.
Cystitis, or the inflammation of the bladder, is one of the most common after effects of this.
If you are persistently plagued with these infections, you run the risk of contracting a serious kidney infection.
As well as weeing after sex, there are plenty of other ways to prevent UTIs.
Fragranced bath products, including bubbles and bombs, can irritate the vagina.
This makes your intimate area more prone to infection, so try to use unscented shower items as much as possible.
Dress to impress – Experiment with dressing up to boost your sexual arousal. If a man in uniform turns you on, get your partner to dress up. Why not meet your lover at the door dressed in a tight skirt and blouse with stockings and killer heels to get hi
Dehydration can also lead to kidney problems and cystitis. Make sure to drink plenty of whatever throughout the day.
Wearing loose-fitting underwear and staying lubricated during sex can also help to prevent the common ailment.
