    Deviation,, There's simple bottle washing wich is run water from a bottle sitting in the toilet (water coming from above). So that the water runs evrything down to teh toilet. then you pat dry.
    However the perfect way to bottle wash after BM and before sex is explained step by step in a book by ****** ********* "Urinary TracT Infection, sexual cystitis and IC" Although the part about IC doesn't apply to all b/c she thinks is is bacterial only when I think there are so many differnt causes for it. I think the $10 or so I've paid for the book are worth every penny and a LOT more. The more information you get the better, specailly on how to PREVENT THINGS. I've learned bottle wahing from her and it makes totale sense to me.

    Thanks SMR218, great tip - so what is 'bottle washing'? Any info on this would be great, either here on by private message. It sounds like it could work for me (and I'll try anything, even if it only helps a bit.)

    ONE of the Best things to avoid sex related UTI's is bottle washig,(whatever kind of sex , b/c any stimulation to the urethra per my urologist, can cause an UTI, not only penetration)...please do. If you want tinof on how to bottle wash correctly, let me know. Keeping the area free (as free as possible) of bad bacteria (coming from anus or hands) sorry but that's how it is.

    I also wondered about if touching down there could cause UTIs. But then I thought about it, and before I got IC, I never got a UTI from touching down there. I think that IC causes us to be very suseptible to getting infections. I just got over an infection a couple weeks ago, and have no clue how I got it, since I am very clean and have not even had sex. I feel like I have a UTI now, even though my culture that I had taken last Friday was clear. I still think I have a UTI though. Those cultures are not always accurate I dont think. Maybe I had the culture done to early for it to pick up the bacteria. I am suppose to do my first instill tomorrow. I pray I dont have an infection as it may make it worse. I would ask her to do a dipstick urine test, but those are a bunch of crap and never pick up my infections anyhow.

    I wondered that, actually, SharonA... given the pain is similar to a UTI for me and I also get quite nauseous.... although it happens even when hands are scrubbed clean! I'm wondering if I'm irritating my urethra rather than my bladder.

    Could what you are experiencing with masturbation actually be a UTI? I have wondered about that myself. Since UTIs are an infection caused by something invading the Urinary System, does it stand to reason that unclean hands could be causing a UTI?

    Hi all, have joined WSH just waiting for registration to be approved so I can post.

    In the meantime.... it's interesting that people have problems with orgasms. Orgasms from oral sex don't hurt me at all, it's just masturbation that leaves me in a flare for several days. This is why I feel so wierd. It's also wierd trying to explain to the uro (who's great, don't get me wrong) that the pain only comes from masturbation, because talking about masturbation is so embarrassing for me....!!!

    I think the pain after orgasm is caused by the uterus reacting which in turn shakes up the bladder. I have had some difficulties with orgasm, myself.

    Do come on over to the When Sex Hurts site, Kirsten. We would love to have your input.

    I have heard of this happening to other IC'ers, so I don't think it's uncommon, unfortunately.

    I'm not really sure if it's from chemicals being released that maybe irritate things, or maybe some form of pelvic floor dysfunction....but I have heard of that before, and it's very understandable why you are kind of down about it - there are so many losses sometimes with this disease!

    Blessings,
    Lori
