When suffering from urethritis, it is best not to swim. Because the congestive edema of the urethral mucosal tissue and the defense ability of the urethral mucosal tissue is reduced, swimming often aggravates the symptoms of urethritis.


Urinary system diseases are common clinical diseases. Among various urinary system diseases, urethritis is the highest, so you must pay attention to preventing the onset of urethritis in daily life. Even for patients who already have urethritis, you must pay more attention to contraindications, which can prevent the recurrence of urethritis.


Urethritis is a prevalent inflammatory disease of the urinary system. After suffering from urethritis, it often leads to internal urethral suppuration, and there will be a solid tingling sensation during urination, which seriously affects people's normal life and work. Therefore, you must do a good job in the hygiene of genital parts at ordinary times to prevent infections caused by external invasions of the urethra.


Swimming is a sport that many people like. It can not only strengthen the body, but also play the effect of detoxification. However, for patients with urethritis, swimming is a kind of torture. If there is inflammation in the genital parts, the bacteria in the water will further aggravate the course of urethral infections. It causes urethritis to be more serious, so people with urethritis are unsuitable for swimming.


In addition to swimming, people with urethritis are unsuitable for the following:


1. Delayed medical treatment. Many people think that urethritis is not a serious disease. They casually go to the pharmacy to buy some anti-inflammatory drugs to eat. This is wrong because they don't know the causes of the disease, and it is easy to take medicine indiscriminately.


2. Drink too little water. Drinking a lot of water is conducive to relieving urinary tract infections, so you must drink more water after suffering from urethritis.


3. Stop the medicine without authorization. When the symptoms are mild, many people will decide to stop taking medicine without authorization, which is also undesirable, because it is often only the superficial symptoms disappear, but it does not really completely be cured.


4. Smoking and alcohol are not prohibited. Tobacco and alcohol have a strong stimulating effect on the inflammatory part of the human body, so smoking and alcohol should be absolutely taboos if you have urethritis.


5. Frequent sex. Frequent sexual life is likely to cause cross-infection, so it is best not to have sex during the disease.


In fact, many inflammations of the urinary system need the cooperation of life taboos. If you don't care about anything and take medicine alone in life, many diseases will have the characteristics of repeated attacks. So after suffering from urethritis, you must pay attention to some life taboos. Urethritis is a contagious disease, so it is best to sleep in separate rooms with your partner after suffering from it.
