Clean up after sex

Dec 4, 2012

What is the best method to clean genital part after sex? Should I use soap with warm water or antiseptic solution such as dettol liquid, povidone iodine , chlorhexidine solution for cleansing. Thanks for your reply

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Good old soap and water is a great way to clean up after sex. If you use anything more harsh such as the chemicals that you listed could irritate your skin and cause openings and an uncomfortable feeling.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Am I at risk?
