Sex Advice

Dear Dr. Locker: Is it true that it is good for sexual health for a woman to pee after sex?

Answer from Dr. Locker

Yes. Urinating after sex clears a woman's urethra of any bacteria that could have entered it from contact with her partner. Bacteria that gets into the urethra during sex is a cause of urinary tract infections (UTIs), so you can certainly reduce your risk by urinating after sex.
