sexual intercourse with urinary infections

Relaciones sexuales con infecciones de orina

SOS!… Millions of women suffer and are stressed because sexual relations with urinary tract infections are destroying their physical and mental connection with their partners.

But don't worry, there is salvation and with post you will remove several blindfolds.

You will learn the most essential about sexuality and urinary infections and how to maintain full intimacy avoiding the bacteria that cause them.

In the end, you will get tips on how to talk to your partner about the subject, without shame, so that this condition, instead of coming between you, strengthens your relationship.

Why does sexual contact cause urinary tract infections?

Sex is a common cause of urinary tract infections . But, contrary to what many believe, it is not because they are transmitted sexually.

What happens is that the female urogenital system is naturally full of bacteria, good and bad.

And during intimate contact, the bacteria move and can reach the bladder or urethra, where they multiply and cause urinary tract infection .

They could also be acquired by hands full of bacteria, poorly sanitized adult toys , among others.

Who is more sensitive to suffer them and why?

  • Sexually active women are more exposed to infections.

  • Those who have not had sexual contact for a long time.

  • Women with perimenopause and menopause, when estrogens drop, the good bacteria that defend against infections decreases. Additionally, the vaginal walls and urethra become thin, dry, and inflamed, creating easier access for bad bacteria.

  • In postmenopause, due to urinary incontinence and estrogen deficiency.

Can I infect my partner?

Not fortunately. The type of bacteria that cause urinary tract infections are not transferred from one organ to another.

Does sexual intercourse with urine infections make the situation worse?

Unfortunately, yes because new bacteria could be seeded.

In addition, the pain, burning, and irritation are increased by the pressure exerted by the male member on the vagina.

When can I resume intimacy?

First of all, you must receive a medical treatment to eliminate the bacteria.

And be very careful to interrupt it because you no longer perceive the symptoms. The infection may not have completely gone away and may come back more aggressive.

When you finish the treatment and you are free of discomfort, you can resume intimate contacts.

How to have sex life without contracting urinary infections?

There are many ways to maintain your intimate health and avoid urinary infections.

  1. Urinate before and after your sexual encounters to prevent bacteria from staying in your bladder.

  2. Use cleaning wipes to disinfect yourself before, during and after the act.

  3. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day so that the urine flows and you do not accumulate bacteria.

  4. Avoid caffeinated drinks because they can irritate your bladder.

  5. Adult toys should be thoroughly cleaned before and after use. Especially if they have complicated designs that make it easy for germs to harbor .

  6. Avoid oil-based lubricants because they can leave residue inside and be a source of bacteria. Also, even if you wash well, it costs a lot to remove them.

  7. Do not overdo it with cleaning the vagina. You could alter its pH in addition to its natural cleaning system with which it eliminates substances and germs.

  8. Experts recommend not having vaginal contact immediately after anal. This will prevent the bacteria contained in the feces from spreading.

  9. Ask your doctor about your birth control options. You could be allergic to condoms or diaphragms and cause urinary tract infections.

  10. Take supplements proven to help maintain a healthy urinary tract. Especially those that contain red fruits , called cranberry.

      How to tell your partner that you have urinary infections?

      In the middle of the 21st century, there is still modesty and taboos to talk about intimate issues with the couple.

      But in cases like this, communication is key. Just imagine:

      • They are in action and you scream, but not from pleasure, but from the feeling that a knife was stuck in your intimate area.

      • You refuse relationships, without explanation. Your partner feels it as a rejection.

      • If a strong odor comes from you or the area itches, your hygiene could be in question.

      • You give way under the pressure, but you have to grit your teeth to endure the burning and intense pain you feel.

      Unfair for both, don't you think?

      Dare to generate conversation with these 5 tips, plus one piece of advice:

      • Learn well what urinary infections are, their possible causes, how long they can last and the solutions to explain it as clearly as possible.

      • Find a stress-free moment to talk about it naturally. Explain to him what is happening to you and what you are going to do to solve it.

      • Tell him that you avoid having sex just because of the pain and discomfort it causes you.

      • Make him understand that a UTI is not unhealthy or contagious.

      • Ask him for patience as having sex could intensify the symptoms.

      One final tip for you: don't stress or blame yourself for not being able to have sex because of urine infections. You didn't cause it, but the bacteria.

      Focus on caring for your urinary tract responsibly and everything will get better soon.
