There are plenty of steps you can take to address those risks so that you remain protected and sexually healthy.
What To Not Do After Having Unprotected Sex?
Douching can increase the risk of other reproductive system infections and vaginal irritation or dryness. Plus, douching may make it hard to get pregnant or create complications during pregnancy
Urinate After Sex
Common symptoms of a UTI include:
1. Pain or burning while urinating
2. Frequent urination
3. Feeling the need to urinate, even when your bladder is empty
4. Bloody urine
5. Pressure or cramping along the groin or lower abdomen
If you experience any of these symptoms, make an appointment with ASGAR healthcare Group to get treated with Ayurvedic Medication. Most UTIs begin to clear up within a few days of starting treatment.
Get Tested For Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
It’s a good idea for you and your partner(s) to get tested two weeks after having unprotected sex, especially if you’re not in an exclusive relationship. If you’re concerned that you may have been exposed to an STI, it’s important to remember that it can take time before it becomes active in your body. Testing too soon can cause you to get inaccurate results. If you know your partner has tested positive for gonorrhea or chlamydia, you should be treated for exposure right away.
In general it’s best to follow these guidelines for testing:
HIV: Get tested after 23 to 90 days
Chlamydia: Get tested after 5 days to 2 weeks
Gonorrhea: Get tested after 5 days to 2 weeks
Syphilis: Get tested after 2 to 3 weeks
