We can all agree unanimously that sex between two people who care deeply about each other can be really amazing.

But what is not amazing is having an STD or any other infection afterwards, simply because you failed to take proper care of your body after getting intimate.

Yes, it's nice to cuddle and even take a snooze after an orgasmic sexual experience, but a quick clean up before cosying up together will save you both from taking a trip to the doctor's later on.
 
Whether you use a condom or not, there are certain important hygienic things you need to do to ensure that you can continue to have great sex with your partner again and again.

Read on to find out three things you should do after sex, especially for women.

1. Use the toilet

You don't have to poo if you don't feel like it, but you should pee after sex. Urinating helps to empty up any sexual fluids in your lady parts and the urine also cleanses your vagina of any lingering bacteria that you may have come in contact with probably due to the use of condoms or lubricant or even from skin to skin contact with your partner. 

 
2. Wash up properly

After emptying your bladder, wash your vagina properly with water. No need to use soap or douches as some of them contain strong chemicals that can kill the healthy bacteria in your vagina. If you are in a place where water is not available or that is not convenient for you to wash up properly, use wet wipes to clean up. Using dry tissue paper isn't enough. Always have a pack of wet wipes in your bag just in case.

3. Dry up

One of the causes of yeast infection is leaving your genital wet after cleaning or washing. That's like throwing a rat out of your house and still leaving your front door open - it will come back in. Always use a towel to dry your vagina after cleaning. Once that area is clean and dry, you're less likely to catch an infection especially if this is done immediately after (safe) sex.
