10 Things That Happen to Your Body When You Stop Having Sex

We all know that many things can affect your sex life – maybe you’re going through a breakup, or maybe your partner is sick. Or, maybe it’s just life, kids, work, or 100000 other problems are in the “way”.

So, do you know that feeling (just for the record – I don’t!), when a few days turn into weeks or months, and before you know it, you haven’t had sex in so long that you kind of stop missing it. I really think that we can all agree on one thing – we all go through our sexual ruts from time to time. 

But, did you know that your body “reacts” when you stop having sex? YES, and (unfortunately) some of those reactions are pretty intense. From mental issues like decreased concentration and feeling sad, to lack of libido, to increased risk for health issues, lack of sex is about a lot more than being horny.

Ladies and gentlemen, in this article we’re going to show you ten things that can happen to you if you stop having sex – don’t ignore them:

  1. You’ll get sick more often. 

According to the famous Dr Cory B. Honickman, our immune system gets weaker when we’re not having active sex life. So, ladies and gentlemen, you should ask yourself – do you want to avoid the cold and flu? Well, if your answer is yes, then you should have more sex.

  1. Your stress levels increase.

Did you know that your stress levels will increase if you’re not getting any? Yes, and according to Dr. Honickman, you can get more anxious because there’s a decrease in “feel good” hormones being released. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you go that right – lack of sex is stressful. A recent study has revealed that when you’re going through a sex rut, you absolutely have a harder time dealing with stress-inducing situations.

  1. You have a harder time getting aroused. 

Besides that, men could begin to suffer from erectile dysfunction, specifically premature ejaculation.

  1. Your dreams change. 

Your dreams will change. And, you may start having sex dreams or even orgasm in your sleep. It’s not the same as the real deal, but it’s a nice substitute.

  1. You lose urge to have sex. 

According to Dr. Honickman, you will start to want sex less if you haven’t gotten any in a while. Your libido is going to feel off or different than it normally does. And it’s normal that it feels abnormal.

  1. You grow apart from your partner. 

This is very important for you to remember – if you’re in a relationship, you may start getting insecure about the connection you have with your honey (and other people are going to become more attractive to you).

  1. Your self-esteem might suffer. 

Yes, your self-esteem will suffer, and you will feel less attractive and sad. According to the experts, semen has anti-depressant qualities and using a condom can have these negative reactions as well.

  1. For men, the risk for prostate cancer rises. 

Guys, you’ll be shocked when we tell you that a man’s risk for prostate cancer rises if they go without having sex for long periods of time.

  1. Your vaginal walls get weaker. 

The experts say that active sex life will strengthen the walls of the vagina.

  1. Your risk of STIs will decrease. 

Note: most of these occur within 24 hours of having sex. No sex, majorly decreased chance of infection. Thank you for your time and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family. Thank you and have a good one.
