    So there is another question....do you reach in from behind, or go between your legs???
    Wipeing back to front is a major cause of UTI's. If you reach from under and whipe back to front from your bum, it's even worse.

    I used to whipe back to front after a wee, I would have 3-4 UTI's a year, sometimes more. The doc recommended front to back about 12 months ago. Haven't had a UTI since.

    LOL I wipe back to front and touch wood have never had any nasty UTI's or anything. I've tried the other way and could not do it, never felt so uncoordinated in my life LOL.

    I sit, and then lean forward reach around and wipe front to back.

    DH does the same, but he tries to time his motions so he can shower straight afterwards, he hates feeling dirty. lol.

    I have no idea how you would get a good wipe if you were standing! There's no 'room for movement'.

    I sit.

    I also reach in from the front to wipe. Have never had an infection.

    I wipe front to back, but go in between the legs, if that makes sense!

    I just asked my DH and his response was "what is wrong with you people" LOL, don't think I can give you another male perspective.

    Default Possibly one of the stranger questions to appear on the Hub......

    This is so hilarious. I seriously thought everyone sat except for some children I've seen. I wonder if the children's I've seen standing are actually taught by their standing parents.
    So it seems it is not as simple as "do you fold or do you scrunch?"
