It is generally believed that only men need regular sex, and women can do without it. However, doctors deny this view. According to them, a woman needs a regular and high-quality sex life for both physical and psychological benefit, and the absence of sex can cause serious problems. How exactly does lack of sex affect women’s health?
Stress and depression
Sex is one of the best natural means of relieving stress. During sex, the brain produces pleasure hormones. Of course, endorphin deficiency can also be due to intense stress, discomfort, and other reasons.
According to psychologists, a woman who experiences a lack of sex unconsciously tries to compensate for it with something – she focuses more on work, hobbies, raising children, or other activities.
Immunity is weakened
Sex activates the body’s defense mechanisms and helps prevent colds and other diseases. British researchers have found that people who have sex at least twice a week have a 30 percent stronger immune system. In addition, viral illnesses and colds are easier to treat than in single people.
Regular sex life lowers blood pressure, maintains vascular tone, and helps prevent heart attacks and strokes. Sex suppresses stress, which is the leading cause of heart disease.
Sleep disorders are usually the result of depression, stress, or simply a lack of positive emotions. So sex also helps with sleep disorders.
Lack of intimate life causes stress, which leads to overeating, excessive consumption of sweets and fatty foods. It turns out that the body tries to compensate for the lack of endorphins with fats and carbohydrates. Sex, on the other hand, is a form of physical activity that burns calories.
Cravings for alcohol
Some women tend to compensate for the lack of positive emotions and sex not only with cakes and chocolate but also with alcohol. A small amount of alcohol helps to fall asleep and relax but does great harm to the body.
Researchers in European countries have studied that a long-term lack of sex in a woman’s body upsets the hormonal balance. Due to the increase in male hormones in the body, the skin tends to be oily, pumps, and unwanted hair appear.
Hormonal imbalances exacerbate menstrual cramps. Sex, on the other hand, suppresses this pain. Researchers have found that even intimate touches, hugs and caresses have a fairly significant analgesic effect.
What most conveys a woman’s age? Of course, this is a skin condition. Sex produces hormones that stimulate collagen production. It accelerates skin regeneration, and the progesterone produced during sex prevents the development of unwanted facial skin problems.
American researchers have found that from the age of thirty, people who have sex three times a week appear to be at least 2-3 years younger than their peers who lack sex.
