The Anus is pretty close to Vagina for women, this means fecal bacteria is also nearby, even in the cleanest of women. This situation plus sex can have an unpleasant outcome. "When you have intercourse, that penetration allows some of this bacteria to get closer to the urethra". Women have short urethras compared to men, so it's easy for this bacteria (once inside) to make its way to the bladder, where it can multiple damage tissue, and cause inflammation. This is a urinary tract infection (UTI), which can be painful and require antibiotics.
Peeing right after sex can help prevent the spread of fecal bacteria to the bladder and, therefore UTIs. This is also why partners should not switch to vaginal intercourse right after anal. After you read this, you’re sure to make peeing after sex a regular part of your post-coital routine.

The tube everyone has that allows pee to discharge from the bladder is called the urethra. Because a woman has a shorter urethra than a man does, bacteria need to travel a shorter distance to get to a woman’s bladder. And if that happens, it could result in a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). Sexual intercourse can cause the bacteria to get into the urethra. Why? Some bacteria remain in the vagina and anus after using the bathroom, and your partner’s penis (or fingers) could introduce bacteria, too. Penetration during intercourse lets some of those bacteria into the urethra, and sex can also irritate your urethra.
Once the bacteria gets into the urethra, they could make their way to the bladder. But you can stop that from happening by peeing right after sex. The urine flushes out those nasty bacteria, saving your bladder from becoming infected. So remember to pee after sex to help prevent a UTI.
