Sexual activity is a major UTI trigger. Bacteria like E.coli harmoniously exist within themicrobiome of our gastrointestinal tract, anus, and perineum. During sexual activity it’s easy for bacteria to shift around and make its way to your urethra. It also doesn’t help that the clitoris is located just above the urethra, let alone the fact that people with vaginas have urethrae that are 4 to 5 times shorter than those of people with penises. Since UTIs and sex have been around since, erm, forever---when did doctors start recommending antibiotics after sex to prevent UTIs?
Where does that put us today?
Doctors prescribe prophylactic antibiotics to guard patients from bacteria that cause UTIs, but, what’s the catch?
What are alternative solutions to taking antibiotics after sex?
Postcoital prophylaxis isn’t your only shot at banishing UTIs after sex. Keep up with good urinary health habits; drink plenty of water, urinate after sex, avoid spermicidal lube, feminine sprays and douches. Avoid switching to vaginal sex directly after anal sex, and clean your sex toys after each use with mild soap and water.
As antibiotic resistance is on the rise, this form of treatment will become obsolete. Scientists still agree that prevention is the best treatment-- drink Uqora Target after sex.
"I suffered from CHRONIC UTIs and have had some pretty
serious repercussions from taking mass amounts of antibiotics.
I have not had a UTI since I started taking uqora. I drink it after things that are my triggers (sex in particular) and it stops it in it’s tracks!"
Lacey, Uqora customer
