The average person is said to have s*x a grand total of 5,778 times before they die. Whether that seems a little or a lot is totally your business, but one thing is for sure. Dry spells happen to even the most libidinous of people. Maybe it’s self-imposed. Maybe it’s just the way the rotten cookie of life sometime crumbles. Whatever the story behind your fallow bedroom times, a lack of s*x will have a knock-on effect on your body and general psyche. Below are some of the Things that happens due to lack of love making.
1. You Lose Your Libido
When it comes to your s*x drive it seems it’s a case of “use it or lose it”. For some people who refrain from s*x, they begin to feel more sluggish, with less vitality and hunger for it. This is not the case for everyone though.
However, some people find the idea of s*x even more desirable when having a dry spell.
2. Your Vag*nal Walls May Weaken
This mainly applies to women entering the menopause. As said, Without regular frequency of intercourse as you get older the walls of your vag*na thin out and can lead to painful s*x when you finally get back to make love. Cause of this, the North American Menopause Society even recommend having regular penetrative s*x to help vag*nal health during menopause.
3. You May Experience a Loss of Lubrication
Another side-effect that applies principally to older women, apparently the vag*na struggles to get lubricated when you start having intercourse after a hiatus. Young women may experience a lack of s*x differently.
4. Your Period Pain May Get Worse
It may seem counter-intuitive, but having s*x during your period can alleviate menstrual cramp. Many women suffer with period cramps in their abdomens. The uterus is a muscle and many women will actually have a uterine contraction when they orgasm, which will cause the blood to expel more quickly, which will in turn decrease menstrual cramps.
Also, there may be an increase in endorphins, which also will help with menstrual cramps.
5. Cardiovascular Health
If you do not have sex on regular basis, you are at a higher risk to develop cardiovascular disease. In addition to being a source of exercise, sexual intercourse helps keep your estrogen and progesterone levels in balance, which can lower your risk of heart disease.
6. Stress and Anxiety Level
Having sex releases the hormone oxytocin and endorphins into the body. These neurochemicals can help manage the effects of anxiety or stress. Oxytocin has the additional benefit of helping you sleep. If you do not have sex regularly, your body may release these hormones less often, which might make it more difficult to cope with stress.
7. Relationship Health
For many couples, regular sexual intercourse is an important way to maintain their bond. Regular sex also often opens the door for better communication.
Generally, couples who have sex more often feel emotionally attached and connected in comparison to those who do it less often.
