11 – To Pee or Not to Pee

Yet another episode on messages women get from the media! This time I am looking at whether or not people with vaginas need to pee after sex to prevent urinary tract/bladder infections. Most people I know are aware of the peeing-after-sex rule for the care and keeping of the urinary tract. But, is this true? Does peeing actually help stave off the agonizing hell of a UTI? If you have ever read any sort of media targeted at women, you will definitely think the answer is yes! But what does the research say? Listen now to find out. I will also delve into to other UTI-related topics like what causes them? And can you drown a UTI in cranberry juice to cure it?

 

Urinary tract infections! What do we know? Do we know things? Let’s find out!
