Empowering YOU to be in control


Does sexual intercourse have an impact of urinary tract infections?

The answer is yes it does !

 In women the urethra (the tube which allows the urine to pass from the bladder out of the body) is approximately 4cm long.

Once the engagement of intercourse has commenced it is extremely easy for bacteria to be introduced into the urethra and travel to the bladder.

Sexual intercourse can cause irritation to the urethra making it more susceptible and allows bacteria to travel up the urethra and into the bladder.

You may notice spots of blood when you wipe underneath, which has come from the urthra or bladder.

This can also contribute to painful intercourse.

What can you do about it?

Drink plenty of fluid (water, cranberry or bilberry juice)  to flush out the bladder frequently.

Use the bathroom straight after the sexual intercourse so you clean the area which can prevent  bladder infections.

Having constant bladder infections is enough to get the most patient woman down. Every time you pass urine its like passing razor blades, as soon as you engage in sexual intercourse already in the back of your mind you will be aware that the next day you will be on the loo crying.

The build up of bacteria inside the bladder affects the whole well being of you. So what do you do, go to the doctor again  get yet another prescription of antibiotics and hope for the best. The problem is when the antibiotics start to cause thrush another female problem we tend to “put up and shut up about”. When will it stop??

If you stop having sexual contact with your partner then that causes another set of problems to deal with. The vicious circle which constantly swirls around in your head.

Recommended reading and exercise to deal with not only bladder infections but also how to re train your pelvic floor back into shape allowing you to be a complete woman. Stronger muslces and correct pelvic floor movements = a stronger muscle control, better sex, easier bladder and bowel movements and a healthier body.

The recommendations below have been tried and passed by medical experts worldwide.

    Pfilates exercises are a medically proven regime

    Pfilates was created by American Urogynaecologist Dr Bruce Crawford. The Pfilates kit is now available in Europe sold through C&G Medicare Ltd. C&G Medicare Ltd are based in The United Kingdom and promote Pfilates throughout Europe demonstrating to medical professionals and women who do not want to take surgery or drugs to correct urge or stress incontinence.

    Pfilates is a program of neuromuscular conditioning based on extensive EMG recordings taken from the pelvic floor.  Pfilates was created to provide a method of home pelvic floor fitness training accessible to a broad population. 

    Pelvic floor disorders are absolutely epidemic.  Stress urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, female sexual dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, and fecal incontinence are so commonplace they are often regarded as the inevitable consequences of childbirth and aging.  When these conditions are treated they are to often regarded as purely mechanical disorders requiring a surgical solution.  Although trained as a surgeon I have come to regard these disorders as principally neuromuscular disorders deserving of a neuromuscular solution.

     It is clear that programs of pelvic floor neuromuscular rehabilitation successfully improve pelvic floor symptoms.  Such programs typically involve a set schedule of isometric pelvic floor muscle exercises (Kegel exercises) that must be continued long term.  It is also clearly established that very few women will continue to perform this type of isometric exercises for an extended period of time.  

    In creating the Pfilates program we have ventured to provide a plyometric (movement oriented) method of pelvic floor exercise that could be incorporated in to any regular fitness routine.  Our neuromuscular research reveals that movements which engage the external hip rotators, adductors of the thigh, transverses abdominals, and gluteal muscles also facilitate, or induce, a pelvic floor contraction.  This information has proven especially useful for women unable to perform an isolated voluntary pelvic floor contraction. 

     The Pfilates program is a simple program consisting of ten movements presented in the same order in three different phases (beginning, intermediate, and advanced).  Each of the Pfilates movements includes a series of repetitions followed by a hold phase and a pulse phase at the point of peak engagement of the pelvic floor.  As such these movements encourage the development of the three essential elements of neuromuscular performance: strength, endurance, and coordination.  The Pfilates DVD includes a detailed “Learn These Movements” that should be reviewed carefully before beginning any of the ten minute routines. 

     Pfilates is intended to be preventative but also a therapeutic alternative for those already experiencing symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction.  For patients that have already has surgery Pfilates can help protect the investment and reduce the chance for recurrent symptoms.

Instead of being the test subject of an amateur cosmetic dental professional, it pays to spend some time researching on the internet.
