Although you might want to power down like a computer after being hot and steamy with your boo, we recommend saving some energy for the clean-up afterward! The after-sex hygiene for women is just as important as the routine before sex. Here are three things Dr. Barb suggests to do after sex to ensure you stay clean and healthy!

Take a Bathroom Break

Ladies, the truth has been out there for a long time. It is a fact that peeing after sex can reduce the likelihood of urinary tract infections (UTI). The risk of UTI increases considerably from anal bacteria entering the urethra during sex says, Dr. Barb. Scientific studies have supported that peeing helps to flush out the invading bacteria. If you cannot pee right after, drink some water to hydrate yourself. A bathroom break is an integral part of the hygiene practice for sexual activity during and after sex.

Check Down There

After all that love-making and friction, your kitty may feel a little sore. The next thing Dr. Barb wants you to do is to look and inspect down there. If you have any soreness or redness, use aloe vera on the labia or use an ice pack to soothe down there. Or better yet, check out our vaginal balm and place some on the affected areas for faster results.
If you inspect your kitty cat and experience something severe like heavy bleeding, have lesions, intense pain during/after sex, have yellow or green discharge, please consult with your gynecologist. These signs may indicate fibroids, endometriosis, STI, or ovarian cyst.

Take A Bird Bath

After the Big-O, we all want to lay there sweaty and breathless, but let us be the ones to tell you you will not be thankful for all the bacteria piling up as you lay there. Dr. Barb recommends these tips for clean and healthy fun in the bedroom!
Down there may be a little off from using lube and saliva to wet down there. Dr. Barb suggests taking a birdbath if you are not taking a shower or bath. For that, hop in the shower and use our fragrance-free, paraben-free, hypoallergenic, and pH balanced Kushae Gentle 2-1 Foaming Wash on your vulva and use water to rinse. Be gentle when you are down there and always wipe front to back.
