  • Bladder spasms after sex?

    Does anyone else experience bladder spasms after sex? I hate going to the bathroom after because it's almost a guarantee that I'll have one. It's usually only that first one right after and then it goes away. Most of the time the spasms are under control with vesicare but sex (and after showers.. like going from the hot water to the very cold rest of the apartment) will trigger them.

    Yes, I've experienced this. I have had both doctors and my PT advise me to urinate before and right after sex to try to avoid a UTI. After I urinate, I don't usually have spasms anymore.
