For those with a vagina, the possibility of infections is much greater during sexual activities. One such infection is urinary tract infection, which is not sexually transmitted, but can be triggered due to sexual intercourse.
A UTI is an infection that affects any part of the urinary system including the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. This happens when bacteria from the skin or rectum enter the urethra and infect the urinary tract.
Having said that, if you have urine in your bladder when you’re having sex, the bacteria that is pushed inside could grow and multiply if you do not urinate within a few hours after intercourse.
