10 things that happen to you when you stop having seks

1. You’re get sick more often. Our immune system gets weaker when we’re not getting any. Want to avoid the cold and flu? Have more $ex. Sounds like a win-win preposition if you ask us.

 

2. Your stress levels increase.You can get more anxious because there’s a decrease in “feel good” hormones being released, says Doctor. Lack of $ex is stressful. Even studies have shown that when you’re going through a $ex rut, you absolutely have a harder time dealing with stress-inducing situations.

 

3. You have a harder time getting aroused.On the other hand, men could begin to suffer from erectile dysfunction, specifically premature ejaculation. (Hey, the penis IS a muscle. It’s like they say at the gym: use it or lose it.)

 

4. Your dreams change.On the positive side of things, you may start having $ex dreams or even orgasm in your sleep. It’s not the same as the real deal, but it’s a nice substitute.

 

5. You lose urge to have $ex.Dr. Honickman says that you will start to want $ex 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.

 

6. You grow apart from your partner.If you’re in a relationship, you may start getting insecure about the connection you have with your honey. To that end, other people are going to become more attractive to you. Take this as a sign that a healthy $ex life is important.

 


7. You self-esteem might suffer.You may feel less attractive and more sad. It’s believed semen has anti-depressant qualities — and no, that’s not just something men have made up so we blow them. Using a condom can have these negative reactions as well.

 

8. For men, the risk for prostate cancer rises.It’s more than your immune system. Dr. Honickman says a man’s risk for prostate cancer rises if they go without having $ex for long periods of time. That seems pretty unfair. No orgasms AND you might die. Thanks, universe.

 

9. Your vaginal walls get weaker.Having $ex can be like a workout for your Kegels. So even if you aren’t getting any, it’s important to remember to do your Kegel exercises on a daily basis.

 

10. Your risk of STIs will decrease.Hey, there’s a silver lining for everything. And interestingly, so does your risk of UTIs. Most of these occur within 24 hours of having $ex. No $ex, majorly decreased chance of infection.
