The fact that you’re unclear of how to avoid getting pregnant is understandable. Many misconceptions exist regarding the process of pregnancy and methods of contraception.
An interaction between a sperm and an egg cell in a fallopian tube is necessary for conception to occur. In semen, sperm are cells. A sperm must pass through a woman’s private organ, cervix, uterus, and fallopian tube before it can encounter an egg.
If an egg is present in the fallopian tube, the sperm may fertilise it. A pregnancy starts if the fertilised egg clings to the uterine wall.
According to Medicalnewstoday, the misconception that urinating after intimacy inhibits pregnancy is false; in fact, giving in to the urge to urinate after intimacy won’t affect whether you and your spouse are successful in getting pregnant but may be beneficial to your health.
Although urinating after intimacy won’t affect your ability to conceive, you might want to practise it as a preventative measure considering that sex can lead to UTIs.
UTIs can be prevented by urinating before and after intimacy, wiping from front to back after using the restroom, refraining from douching or using feminine hygiene products on your genitalia, and wearing cotton underwear. UTIs, which can affect anyone regardless of anatomy and can affect any component of the urinary system (including the urethra, bladder, ureters, and kidneys), are infections.
Your urethra, not your vagina, serves as the exit point for urine. The little opening directly above your vaginal entrance is your urethra. This means that urinating won’t remove sperm from your body.
Use an effective birth control technique, such as the pill, an IUD, or an implant, to avoid conception. Discuss the best approach for you with your healthcare practitioner.
