Not having sex regularly can have a serious impact on your body. Apart from making you more stressed or prone to anxiety, it can actually cause health problems.
If you don’t have sex for a while, you’re making your heart more prone to developing a disease. This is mostly due to the hormones progesterone and estrogen that are produced during sex, which is also the ones keeping our heart healthy.
Believe it or not, regular sex helps people retain good memory. Recent research conducted among those between 50 and 89 shows that seniors who don’t have regular intercourse start developing memory issues much faster.
Lack of sex can also compromise your entire immune system, making you an easier target for flu and other viruses. It also means your pain tolerance will be reduced, and aches and pains will affect you more than those who have regular intercourse.
Lovemaking also helps vaginal tissue health, because it improves blood flow and natural lubrication. These processes are very important for overall sexual and reproductive health.
