Whenever the word ”sex” is mentioned, many of us draw closer attention – not just because it is a word we need to hear but rather, a word we are actively used to as adults. In fact, most of us cannot ”feel the wilds of life” without a sensual taste of sex with our partners. Many of us have sex for various reasons best known to us…for kids, to release stress or just for the fun of it.
Well, while scientists have proved that sex can decrease anxiety and improve our moods, sex can also be unhealthy if it interferes with your day to day life.
Let us read of 6 major health problems that can be related with the effect of having too much sex.
Scientists have proven that too much sex ( 5 to 10 times a week) could make you become dehydrated – this means that your body loses so much vital water that could end up making you look pale. This is especially so if you have been taking alcohol before or while the sex. Though harmless, this is the most common effect of too much sex.
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)
Having too much sex especially with different partners can expose both women and men to Urinary Tract Infections, a kind of condition which affects the bladder. To avoid contracting a UTI, you should take plenty of water and make sure to empty the bladder before and after sex.
Men are often unable to climax after having too much sex in a short period of time. This is because you have exhausted or considerably ’emptied’ the sperm and semen levels.
While this might seem strange, scientists have concluded that too much sex could get you lose your sight. This happens when blood vessels in the eyes pop during sexual activity. You need not worry too much if this happens to you as it will heal and become normal with time.
Sexual intercourse increases the levels of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. This hormone, in turn, leads to hair loss as DHT is known to kill hair follicles and cause male pattern baldness. So those of us males having issues with baldness, we may want to go back and check our sex history.
The last and most scary effect of having too much sex is that you could be on your way to suffering from a heart attack. While sex can be good for your heart as it is a cardiovascular activity like some others, you should do it with cautions if you have a history of heart problems as constant palpitations and gasps for breath (considering the roughness of sexual activity) could land you on the hospital stretcher.
