‘It’s absolutely normal to pass urine after sex’
Due to the push and pull during sexual intercourse or masturbation, the urinary bladder may feel the extra pressure and hence the feeling of urination.Updated: Jul 11, 2010 03:09 IST
I am a 25-year-old man. After sex, I feel like passing urine.
In males, the urethral opening serves as the outlet for both urine and sperms. Under normal circumstances, due to the pressure created during micturition, the sperms are not allowed entry into the urethra during urination. Similarly, during sexual excitement, the urethra serves as the passage for sperms and not the urine. There are no valves and at times, some amount of intermingling may be possible. Due to the push and pull during sexual intercourse or masturbation, the urinary bladder may feel the extra pressure and hence the feeling of urination. This is absolutely normal and there is no harm if you pass urine following sexual intercourse. Couples prone to urinary tract infections need to pass urine following sexual intercourse to minimise this risk.
