Are you having problems with your marriage and has it stopped you from having sex with your spouse or maybe you focusing so much on your career means you no longer have time for sex with your spouse.
Below are 6 things that happen to your body when you stop having sex
1. You increase the likelihood of erectile dysfunction
According to a 2008 study published in the American Journal of Medicine, men who reported having sex once a week were half as likely to develop erectile dysfunction when compared to men who had less sex frequently. The study showed that regular sex preserves a man’s potency.
2. Difficult in getting wet
Having regular sex means blood flows to a woman’s privates, helping her get wet. This is according to a report by Mayo Clinic. When you stop having sex for awhile, it might take you awhile to get wet down there because the lubrication process of a woman’s privates benefits from having regular sex.
3. Your heart might suffer
According to a study published in the American Journal of Cardiology, men who had sex at least twice a week were less likely to develop heart diseases when compared with men who have sex only once a month.
4. You risk having prostate cancer
According to a study presented to the American Urological Association, men who have regular sex have a 20% drop in their risk for prostate cancer. Having regular sex helps remove potentially harmful substances from the prostate.
5. Your immune system is weakened
According to researchers at Wilkes-Barre University in Pennsylvania, people who have sex once or twice a week enjoyed a 30% boost in immunoglobulin A (IgA) when compared to people who rarely had sex or never.
6. You won’t handle stress well
According to a study published in Biological Psychology, blood pressure reactivity to stress is better for people who recently had sex when compared with people with no sexual activity.
This is no reason to engage in casual sex. Get married and enjoy the many benefits of sex with your partner. Lol.
