Women: Do These 6 Things After Sex

1. Wash, but don’t go overboard
Stray pubic hairs, lubricant (natural or something you applied), ejaculate and all sorts of fun things could be stuck and hanging out around your genitals, so for pure comfort as well as for hygiene, it’s a good idea to have a quick wash. A shower is usually the best idea, and a hot bath not so much. This is because your vagina opens up in response to stimulation, and a hot bath can leave you more susceptible to infection. But, as with any shower, you should avoid the use of soap directly on (and even worse, in) your vagina. Also, avoid wet wipes. Vaginas are incredible in that they are self-cleaning, and using soaps or douches can interfere with their pH levels as well as the healthy bacteria you already have and don’t want to get rid of.
