A retired Chief Research Fellow at the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research, Yaba, Lagos, Dr. Dan Onwujekwe, says many women are in the habit of wiping the wrong way after using the toilet, thereby exposing themselves to the risk of bacteria and urinary tract infections. According to him, women must learn to wipe the proper way after using the toilet.

Onwujekwe who disclosed this during an interview with PUNCH HealthWise, said though some urinary tract infections such as gonorrhea and syphilis are sexually transmitted, many of them are also acquired among women through improper hygiene.

The researcher said, “Many women, after the use of the rest room, the way they smooth up can predispose them to urinary tract contamination. They ought to discover ways to wipe the right way.

“Many of them, after emptying their bowels, wipe from the back in the direction of the front and in the technique, they'll introduce micro organism from the anus into the vagina. From there, the bacteria receives into the decrease urinary tract and could ascend from there to the kidney and they may get urinary tract contamination.

“The right way to wipe is from the front toward the again, in order that micro organism don’t get introduced into the urinary tract through the vagina.”

Onwujekwe mentioned that urinary tract infection does no longer imply that it have to be sexually transmitted. "Those of them which can be transmitted via intercourse, including gonorrhea and syphilis, may be prevented by way of suitable and ordinary use of condoms.
