As wonderful and exciting as sex is it’s not without its risks. Besides the fact that unprotected sex can lead to sexually transmitted diseases and unplanned pregnancy, there are also a number of injuries that one can suffer during sex if you are not careful. In this article, we’re going to take you through some of the most common injuries during sex and how to fix them.
It’s all very well being adventurous when having sex but you should be mindful of where you’re sticking your knees. One of the most common injuries during sex is getting carpet burn due to friction and it can be incredibly painful.
If you get carpet burn, then clean the affected area with antibacterial soap and some cool water. If the skin is broken as opposed to some minor irritation, then clean it with antiseptic cream and apply a bandage.
Prevention is also important so if you plan on having sex on a rough surface be sure to throw something soft down to protect you.
Mixing things up and trying new positions in the bedroom is a great way to keep the flame alive, but it’s also an effective way to injure yourself as well. Sexual positions like reverse cowgirl and the butter churner are notorious for putting strain on your back.
The easiest fix is to place an icepack on the inflamed area. Once the irritation subsides swap the icepack with a heating pad and then drop a couple of ibuprofen to help reduce the inflammation.
“Foreign objects” in the vagina or anus
It’s not uncommon for things to go missing and get stuck in the vagina and/or anus when fooling around with your partner during sex. The important thing is to try not to panic and wait ten to fifteen minutes after arousal then carefully try to fish the items out yourself. If you are unable and you feel you need assistance, be certain to call your doctor.
Don’t panic! Your doctors have likely seen and heard worse so try not to feel too embarrassed.
If you’d like to skip the embarrassment altogether then the best way to avoid such an incident is to buy a sex toy that is specifically designed for being inserted into the vagina or anus.
Urinary tract infection
UTI’s are fairly common when you are having a lot of sex. This can cause a burning sensation when you urinate making you feel very uncomfortable. The best way to prevent a UTI is to ensure that you are well-lubricated before your partner enters your vagina. Dry sex can lead to tears and irrigation which are some of the biggest contributing factors to getting a urinary tract infection.
Oooh yea, we felt that too. While a broken or “fractured” penis is very uncommon, the pain can be absolutely excruciating. This tends to occur when a couple is having especially rough sex and mistakes are made. That’s not to say that you should avoid rough sex, but you really do need to be careful and communicate well with your partner.
If in the event that you do suffer a broken penis you must get yourself to the emergency room ASAP!
