The main reason why women should never pee before sex

Urologist explains why urinating before sex is bad for you.

Urinating before sex increases chances of infection.

This is because during intercourse, bacteria from the vagina could get pushed into the urethra.

Urinary tract infection is an infection that occurs in the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. It's more prone to women because they have shorter urethras which allows bacteria to have faster access to the kidneys.
