People occasionally experience dry spells for many reasons. At times people who are not into any relationship choose to wait until they see the right person. For couples sometimes the attraction between them may reduce, resulting in a lack of desire to have intimacy. In some instances, people don’t just have the desire to make love. This brings about this question, what happens to you when you stop having intimacy for a long period?
In an article written by BY LUKE WINKIE AND ZACHARY ZANE and published in Men’sHealth, some of the things that happen to your body when you stop having intimacy for a while include;
1. You get more stressed out.
A memorable night of lovemaking may make virtually everything else in the world feel good. Even if your master keeps breathing down your neck at work, or when you are under a bunch of ultimatums, you’re steadily getting laid, so all of that seems very manageable.
There is a scientific reason for that. It has been noted scientifically that at climax during intimacy endorphins are released that may assist to increase your mood. However, if you are using lovemaking as a way of coping with stress, a dry spell can highly be frustrating.
2. You may be more probably to experience heart disease.
A scientific study in the past has found that men who make love at least twice a week reduce their risk of heart disease in half. Also, men who have made love regularly might be more probably to be in a supportive intimate relationship. This may increase health through stress reduction and social support.
3. It increases your risk of prostate cancer.
If your dry spell reaches the self-pleasure zone, or if you’re not masturbating at all, a study has discovered that is not healthy. Many studies have concluded jerking off at least four, six to seven times a week may lower the risk of prostate cancer.
4. Your immune system gets weaker.
Climax during intimacy is wonderfully beneficial to your immune system. A study was conducted, patients that were having intimacy once or twice a week were asked to provide saliva samples. Those samples were discovered to have an extremely high concentration of the common-cold busting antibody immunoglobulin A. Who knew that high close contact was a net-positive in terms of preventing illness?
5. Your blood pressure can spike.
If you don’t indulge in intimacy, you may observe an increase in blood pressure. Studies have found that people who were having regular intimacy had lower levels of blood pressure compared to those who were not. This is also linked to the nexus between lovemaking and stress. The researchers controlled for many variables in the study and conclude that having intimacy more often truly improves your body’s physiological response to stress. This, invariably, maintain one’s blood pressure at a lower base level.
Endeavor to engage in lovemaking regularly in order not to expose yourself to these risks associated with not having intimacy for a while. The medically recommended time to make love is once or twice a week.
