Best Nigerian Hospitals -Doksblog

Best Nigerian hospitals? Healthcare is one of the basic necessities of life. Whether advanced or advancing, every society prioritizes its inhabitants’ healthcare because, without individuals in good health, society’s core essence will definitely die down.

Hope you have heard the saying that “health is wealth”, but a market place or hotel is not the place to go if a health condition develops; a hospital is the right place.

It is also the place to undergo proper check-ups and diagnosis.

Therefore, it’s important to note that while hospitals are the place to visit for health-related issues, a single hospital might not offer all health-related services.

With that said, basic health care is the minimum level of healthcare that is necessary for the maintenance of adequate health and which also serves as protection from diseases.

Basic healthcare services include but are not limited to emergency services, laboratory and radiology services, inpatient hospital and physician care and preventive health services.

The healthcare team is made of Clinicians, Nurses, Medical Laboratory Scientists, Pharmacists, Dentists, Midwives, and other health professionals.

Peeing After Sex:5 Things Ladies Shouldn’t Do After Sex

Peeing After Sex Or Rush To The Bathroom

It is true that easing yourself after sex can help clear the urethral tract of any bacteria introduced during sex that can lead to painful UTIs, but you don’t need to do it right away and ruin the moment.

Sleeping In Lingerie

After sex, your skin tends to be warm and damp, thanks to perspiration, vaginal secretions, and semen. Sleeping in your underwear traps the moisture and you run the risk of a yeast infection.

Use Wet Wipes

If you’re sensitive to chemicals like alcohol, glycerin, scents, and certain oils, using a flushable wet wipe after sex can cause irritation since you’re more susceptible to skin issues after-intercourse

Wash Your Vagina With Soap

You might be tempted to cleanse your private area with soap but the truth is vaginas are self-cleaning organs, there is simply no need for you to use soaps or detergents in your privates. Clean warm water should be enough and preferred to dispel any lubricants or fluids.

Shave Right After Sex

You’re more likely to develop irritation if you shave right after sexual intercourse, this is because during sex women experience an increased blood flow to the genital area making them really sensitive.
