Sex, as researchers found out, can have a bunch of benefits. It has proven to relieve pain and act as an anti-depressant.
Aside from the benefits of regularly getting sex, it’s also important that we keep in mind what happens when we stop doing it.

Here is the list of the things that can happen to you and your body when you stop having sex.
1. Different illnesses are always at bay.
An active sexual life, just like regular exercise, contributes affirmatively to our body’s immune system. According to studies, people who have sex have a higher level of an antibody which protects our body from different germs, bacteria, and viruses.
2. An increase in stress levels is inevitable.
As sex involves two people, it helps in soothing stress and anxiety. Touching and hugging actually release a “feel-good” hormone and that brain chemical eases the levels of stress you are actually in.
3. Getting aroused becomes harder.
In contrary to some beliefs, abstinence or lack of sexual activities results in lesser sexual desire over time as our body begins to get harder to become aroused.
4. Lowers risk of Urinary Track Infections and STDs
Okay, here’s the silver lining as described by YourTango.com: no or minimal sex activities could lower the risk of acquiring urinary track infections (UTI) and/or sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Truthfully, making love has countless benefits to your mind, body, and soul. Studies also have proven that making love can cure anxiety and panic disorders. Additionally, no sex could also
- affect your dreams,
- more distance can be felt between you and your partner.
- It lowers your self-confidence.
- It increases your risk of having cancer.
Just like what we always say, do everything in moderation. Too much sex is bad for your health too.
