A study by experts reveal women should not urinate before sex to reduce the risk of developing a urinary tract infection (UTI).

New York City urologist David Kaufman explained the idea females should pee before intercourse is one of the biggest misconceptions he has to address with patients in his clinic.

He stresses that urinating after sex is important, but warns going to the bathroom beforehand is not advisable.

Indeed, he told Yahoo News that this mistake ‘is the No.1 cause of post-coital urinary tract infections, also known as honeymoon cystitis’.

Why shouldn’t you pee before sex? 

During intercourse, bacteria from the vagina can get pushed into the urethra.

Waiting to pee, and consequently having enough urine stored up to create a strong stream, increases the odds of pushing that bacteria back out.

Dr. Kaufman said that holding on will ensure your bladder is full enough to produce a stream strong enough to help clear any bacteria in the urethra. Without any urine in your bladder, the bacteria can cause an infection.

If you don’t go to the toilet after sex, the bacteria can make its way into the bladder and develop into an infection.

Unfortunately, women are far more susceptible to UTIs than men because of their anatomy. The female urethra is separated from the vagina and anus by just a small distance, making it easy for bacteria from either the vagina or bottom to reach it.

And it is only two inches long – meaning bacteria does not need to travel far to reach the bladder.

And some women are more likely than others to suffer UTIs because their vaginal opening is positioned closer to their urethra, explained Dr. Kaufman, who has some patients who develop a UTI nearly every time they have sex.

According to the NHS, using a diaphragm as contraception can increase your risk of getting a UTI, as the diaphragm may press on the bladder and prevent it emptying completely.

A Kenyan-born woman in the United States is facing deportation after she was found guilty of marriage fraud conspiracy.

Fidelina Mwelu Mutisya, 61, of Winchester, Ohio was found guilty by a Missouri court on Tuesday, according to a statement released by the US Attorney’s Office, Western District of Missouri.

Ms Mutisya admitted to entering in a fraudulent marriage arranged by Delmar Dixon of Kansas City to bypass federal immigration laws with an aim of obtaining permanent residency and/or American citizenship.

She was charged together with 36-year-old Nellie Mbote of Lee’s Summit, Missouri and 40-year-old Rogers Onyango Guche of Cypress, Texas.

The three Kenyans were accused of paying Dixon to arrange their marriages.

According to the statement, they also paid their American ‘spouses’ Sh100,000 ($1,000) at the time of the wedding and Sh10,000 ($100) monthly until the immigration process was complete.

Mbote is said to have exchanged his vows in 2009 while Mutisya and Onyango wedded their spouses in 2007.

Dixon is said to have coached the three Kenyans and their spouses on how to make their marriages appear legitimate by advising the couples to get to know each other and make it appear as if they were living together.

Dixon, who was charged in a separate but related case, was sentenced on July 13, 2017 to three years in federal prison after admitting he arranged between 30 and 40 fraudulent marriages.

Having been found guilty, Mutisya’s naturalisation will be revoked and her certificate of naturalisation annulled.

She had been admitted to the US on a visitor (B-1) visa and is a lawful resident.

The Kenyan also faces deportation under the US federal law, having committed multiple removable offenses, including the one she pleaded guilty to.

But her extradition and other immigration consequences will be subject to a separate proceeding.

BY JANE MUKAMI

Celebrating 21 today years since I arrived in the U.S. from Kenyan – where did time go?

I was 20 yrs old when I got to Atlanta ready for college and no idea how life would unfold. 21 years later I’ve learned…

1. The land of milk and honey is not perfect and it’s not what you see in the movies 🤦‍♀️It does provide opportunities for success but nothing is handed to you…you gotta milk the proverbial cow #WorkForIt & be willing to do what it takes #NoPethos 😂 My 1st job was a cashier at Wendy’s (a fast food joint) making $5.50 [500/=] an hour, but that was just the beginning #StartWhereYouAre #StartWithWhatYouHave

2. Success is relative and should be defined by you and not society. My definition of success is being happy doing what I love while experiencing utmost freedom – debt freedom, financial freedom and location freedom – the ability to serve my clients/work from anywhere in the world #DefineYourSuccess

3. Success requires continued learning/education, breaking away from doing the same ol’ things, with the ol’ same people. Growth comes from new circles, friends, experiences, investing in coaches of finding people who inspire + push you to become who you were created to be. It’s ok to be a small fish in a big pond…it gives you room to grow into a whale🐳 #LevelUp

4. Life’s too short to sweat the small stuff – have fun, laugh, enjoy your journey, protect your space by decreasing negativity, drama, toxic friendships or relationships that do not serve you #You1st

5. Focus on YOU. Don’t worry about what others think or say about you. Be intentional about what you want & make it happen – mute all else and #GoGet #NoExcuses #StayHungry #StayHumble

Atlanta has been good to me…do I qualify for the title #GeorgiaPeach🍑🍑 Even though I don’t like sweet tea, fried chicken, pork rinds, biscuits and gravy, grits, waffles and fried chicken…I’m I the only one still very confused by the words chicken fried steak…?? 🤣

Funny enough, I feel as though the past 21 years were simply a rehearsal, a warm up, a preparation of sorts, and my life is just now beginning #selfactualized

Wait…does spending 20 yrs in Kenya and 21 in the US make me a TRUE (literal) African American? 😂

I’m excited! Its #GoTime. To all my fellow immigrants….let’s keep doing the damn thing – Cheers to 20 more 🥂🥂🇱🇷

Barely five years after immigrating to the United Sates, Kenyan Diaspora media personality Jeremy Damaris has done what many of his peers can only dream of.

His media house, Kenya Diaspora Media – USA (formally Kikuyu Diaspora Media) has established a spectacular state-of-the-art studio after recently paying cash for a building in Birmingham, Alabama.

Since the news broke, well-wishers have been congratulating the entrepreneur who, besides being a radio and tv host, also doubles up as a musician and a professional Master of Ceremonies (MC).

However, the humble man from a village in Kiambu attributes the major achievement to God’s grace.

“I thank everyone who has contributed in one way or another to this immense success. God indeed can move mountains,” says Jeremy, adding that without the goodwill of his fans and well-wishers, this would only have been a pipedream.

Together with his wife Sally, Jeremy immigrated to the USA in 2015 where he established the then Kikuyu Diaspora Radio from scratch.

The station grew exponentially, becoming Kikuyu Diaspora media  and later  re-branding to Kenya Diaspora Media -USA.

“We are now broadcasting in different languages and reaching all manner of Kenyan demographics around the world,” he recently told Kenya Satellite News Network.

Besides disseminating news and events of the day, Damaris, through KDM, has been known to reach out to persons or families in dire straits and bringing their plight’s attention to his audience.

His Youtube channel has been growing fast. Las year, he was awarded the coveted graphite Youtube Creators plaque after his channel reached 100,000 subscribers. His studio, as you can see in the photo below, is equipped to handle all manner of audiovisual content, ready for instant broadcast through various platforms.

“KENYA DIASPORA MEDIA USA has bought its building in cash. Its now Official!!, ” posted Jeremy.

“Glory to God for our new office in United States. FAITH MOVES MOUNTAINS! Thanks to everyone who participated to make this happen.#NoDebt!! #KDMFAMILYTEAM!!! #Mahigahomes #NeemaShelters #Amgrealtors #EdenparkcountryGardens #OptivenLtd #AttorneyWanjohi #GiokoTaxes #Maridadymotors and all #WELLWISHERS,” he added.

“The word compassion may have been created just to describe this true son of Africa as he has many times gone out of his way expressing the same while benevolently responding positively to praiseworthy cases many don’t pay attention to and watch without doing anything to help mankind,” says Dr Isaac Kinungi of Kenyan Parents in the USA organisation.

Others have described him as a philanthropist on a journey of inspiring and a fulfilling the dreams that brought him to America, while connecting the dots and networking with those that share common values and unity of purpose, to bring about change to humanity and society at large.
