Peeing after sex to prevent UTI?
My roommate was diagnosed today with a kidney infection as a result of not attending to a UTI she contracted about a week ago. When discussing it, she told me that it only ever happened when she was sexually active (she's recently become sexually active again with her new boyfriend), and told me she'd heard that peeing after sex was supposed to help prevent them. I've never heard this, and I haven't looked it up yet, but it actually sounds sort of silly to me -- like an old wives' tale or something. Is there any legitimacy behind this, and why does it work, if it does? Thanks in advance. :)
