Recently, a new survey by healthcare company euroClinix has revealed the most common injuries happening during sex. Researchers surveyed 2,000 Brits, and amazingly, a whopping 22% of 18-24 year-olds admitted to hurting themselves during the act. Here are top 8 most common sex injuries and how to treat them.
1.Teared and scratched vagina
This includes minor scratches or a burning sensation after having sex in women. Make sure you’re lubricated enough. In addition, during the “relationship”, you should avoid too aggressive actions.
Having”sex” on the floor helps you “change the atmosphere” but this can lead to itchy, red skin due to bacteria, dirt clinging to the floor and carpet. In this case, you are advised to wash the infected area with cool water and antibacterial soap.
3.Foreign objects in the vagina
These are usually condoms or sex toys. If you have anything that goes missing inside you, take a deep breath, relax and wait 10-15 minutes after sex so that the vagina returns to its normal size. Put 2 fingers inside to try to remove the object. If you can’t succeed in this, see a doctor.
Put something cold on the affected area and perhaps apply a pain-relieving gel.
This is due to excessive movement in the wrong position. Please put something cold on the affected area or take an Ibuprofen if needed.
6.Food irritation (generally caused capsaicin)
Bringing food into the bedroom to increase romance is one thing few people deny but be careful because food can also be a perpetrator to be dangerous.
Avoid eating hot spicy food when “fighting”, after eating, wash your hands, rinse your mouth clean and then “love”. In severe cases, see a doctor to treat the wound properly.
7.Urinary tract infection
Does it hurt when you pee? Go and see your GP to confirm the diagnosis.
Although this is uncommon, don’t put ice on it! Go straight to the emergency.
