Your reasons for not having s£x regularly might be plenty. Perhaps you’re practicing abstinence until marriage or until your relationship hits a milestone. First of all, know this: “There’s nothing wrong with not having s£x,” Healthline confirmed. “Nothing will ‘break’ or ‘get old’ just because you aren’t having s£x. So if you are on a sexual hiatus, please try not to stress. Time without sexual activity can allow you to focus on self-care and self-love, build emotional intimacy without a physical connection, and/or give you the time to boost your fitness level, physical strength, and stamina. Read on to find out things that happen to your body when you stop having s£x.

1. Prostate health declines when you stop having s£x.

It’s not only women who experience the consequences of absent s£x life. Men pay a physical price for sexual hiatuses, and the downside for them can be quite serious with their prostate health on the line.

Dr. Myles Spar, internist, and chief medical officer of Vault Health, told Health Digest, “Studies have shown a lower risk of prostate cancer from regular ejaculation (at least 21 times a month versus men who ejaculate 4-7 times a month).

2. Your cardiovascular health could decline when you stop having s£x.

“Physically, s£x can help us stay in shape, burn calories, and lower blood pressure,” Melissa Gentry, sex, relationship, and intimacy coach and CEO of Healing the Love told Health Digest. While s£x can vary from light cardiovascular exercise to an intense sweat session, having s£x burns 5 calories per minute on average. “This cardiovascular exercise can help keep both your physical and emotional heart-healthy,” said Gentry.

3. When you stop having s£x, your anxiety might increase.

“If s£x is what you want and not having it feels like something is missing, and if you define s£x by partnered erotic activity, then stopping can result in a decreased feeling of connection and intimacy for those in relationships, which can, in turn, cause feelings of anxiety,” Dr. Jill McDevitt, sexologist, sexuality educator, sexual wellness coach explained to Health Digest.

4. Your relationship’s health will be compromised if you stop making love.

When you stop having s£s, you may notice physical, mental, and emotional changes to your own body, but you may not be the only one affected. A sexual hiatus can also take a toll on your partnership if you’re in one. And it’s all connected: The health of one’s relationship can affect one’s physical health.
