16 Bad Things That Happen To Your Health When You Stop Having Sex

Kimberly Love

There was a time not that long ago when nobody would talk about S-E-X. The reason for this wasn’t so much that people weren’t having sex – after all, we are all here – rather, it was considered something that was private, personal and was rarely talked about unless it was between two consenting individuals in a committed relationship. My how the times have changed, and we don’t think that is such a bad thing, for not only are we as a society talking about sex more, but we are starting to understand that this most natural of practices is actually incredibly beneficial to our overall health and well-being.

Over the past few decades, research has been conducted that has shown that sex does much more for us than just making us feel good. It has been shown repeatedly that sex can help to relieve stress, boost our immune system, improve cardiovascular health along with our self-esteem, it improves intimacy between two people, reduces pain and inflammation in the body, and can even help reduce the risk of certain types of cancer. That is only a few of the health benefits of sex, however, while those have been explored rather thoroughly, what doesn’t often get talked about is what happens when you stop having sex on a regular basis; that is, until now. For there are two-sides to every coin and today we are going to discuss all the bad things that happen to your body when you stop having sex.
