How do I take care of myself after sex?

Here are some things you should do after sex:

  • Practice good hygiene: Clean yourself and your genitals with warm water and mild soap. This will help prevent infections and keep you feeling fresh.

  • Urinate: Urinating after sex can help flush out bacteria that may have entered the urethra during intercourse.

  • Take your time: Don't rush to get dressed or leave. Take the time to cuddle, talk, or relax with your partner.

  • Rehydrate: Drink plenty of water to help replenish fluids lost during sex.

  • Use protection: If you're not trying to conceive, make sure you use appropriate birth control methods to prevent pregnancy and protect yourself against sexually transmitted infections.

Here are some things you should not do after sex:

  • Douche: Douching (using water or other fluids to clean the inside of the vagina) can actually increase the risk of infection and is not recommended.

  • Scrub: Scrubbing or using harsh soaps can irritate the genitals and lead to infection.

  • Smoke or drink alcohol: Smoking and drinking can dehydrate the body, making it more susceptible to infections.

  • Ignore discomfort or pain: If you experience discomfort, pain, or abnormal discharge, see a healthcare professional.

It's important to remember that sexual health and well-being is an important aspect of overall health, and it's important to talk to a healthcare professional if you have any concerns about your sexual health.
