Ask any $3xually active person or a couple you know and they’ll tell you that ᴅʀʏ sᴘᴇʟʟs ɪɴ ᴛʜᴇ ʙᴇᴅʀᴏᴏᴍ are quite common and natural. It could last a few weeks or a few months and there are a number of reasons why people who’ve had $3x – even regular s3x – stop or take a break. It could be because of ill health, being too busy or stressed, a dip or cold period in the relationship or because you’re on medications that ɪɴᴛᴇʀғᴇʀᴇ ᴡɪᴛʜ ʏᴏᴜʀ ʟɪʙɪᴅᴏ.
Whatever the reason and the exact ᴅᴜʀᴀᴛɪᴏɴ ᴏғ ᴀʙsᴛɪɴᴇɴᴄᴇ (it’s subjective after all) may be, not having s3x for a long-ish duration of time can have an effect on your health. The following are some of the things you may notice when you stop having $3x.
Regular $3x improves the immune system and prepares the body to fight off illness by ʀᴇʟᴇᴀsɪɴɢ ᴇɴᴅᴏʀᴘʜɪɴs. This means that having s3x less often might result in more frequent illnesses, like the cold or flu. A study reported that saliva samples of college students who had ʀᴇɢᴜʟᴀʀ sᴇx were found to have a higher concentration of certain antibodies called ɪᴍᴍᴜɴᴏɢʟᴏʙᴜʟɪɴ A, which fight the common cold.
Having s3x after a long break can be uncomfortable. It takes longer for the female body to become ᴀʀᴏᴜsᴇᴅ ᴀɴᴅ ᴘʀᴏᴅᴜᴄᴇ ᴇɴᴏᴜɢʜ ʟᴜʙʀɪᴄᴀᴛɪᴏɴ to make $3x easy and comfortable. Regular s3x or ᴍᴀsᴛᴜʀʙᴀᴛɪᴏɴ can keep the tissues in your ᴠᴀɢɪɴᴀ healthy by improving blood flow.
Some people find $3x to be an excellent remedy for menstrual cramps. The increase in endorphins caused by s3x as well as the uterine contractions that occur with ᴏʀɢᴀsᴍ can both help alleviate cramps. You don’t have to have $3x to ʀᴇᴀᴘ these benefits — ᴍᴀsᴛᴜʀʙᴀᴛɪᴏɴ can have the same effect.
If you do not have s3x on a regular basis, you are at a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease. In addition to being a source of exercise, $3xual intercourse helps keep your ᴇsᴛʀᴏɢᴇɴ ᴀɴᴅ ᴘʀᴏɢᴇsᴛᴇʀᴏɴᴇ ʟᴇᴠᴇʟs in balance, which can lower your risk of heart disease.
Surprisingly, going a long time without having s3x can make you lose interest in $3x altogether. The more you have s3x, the more you want to have $3x. Regular s3x boosts your ʟɪʙɪᴅᴏ.
Stress and anxiety level
Having $3x releases ᴇɴᴅᴏʀᴘʜɪɴs ᴀɴᴅ ᴛʜᴇ ʜᴏʀᴍᴏɴᴇ ᴏxʏᴛᴏᴄɪɴ into the body. These ɴᴇᴜʀᴏᴄʜᴇᴍɪᴄᴀʟs can help manage the effects of anxiety or stress. ᴏxʏᴛᴏᴄɪɴ has the additional benefit of helping you sleep. If you do not have s3x regularly, your body may release these hormones less often, which might make it more difficult to cope with stress.
For many couples, regular ⓢⓔⓧⓤⓐⓛ ⓘⓝⓣⓔⓡⓒⓞⓤⓡⓢⓔ is an important way to maintain their bond. Regular s3x also often leads to better communication. Generally, couples who have $3ex more often feel more emotionally attached and connected in comparison with those who do it less often.
