This is what happens to your body when you stop having sex – number 7 is scary as heck

There are few things in life as amazing as having great sex with the one you really care about. If you’re in a healthy, loving relationship, then having an active sex life is a million times easier – and more fun – than if you were single.

But as the years go by, the passion in the bedroom tends to cool down. That’s only natural; it’s just how our bodies and senses are designed. But it’s also something you can work through and deal with. Science has now shown that not having sex can have disastrous consequences!

Not making love will lead to changes in your body, so make sure to work on having an active sex life – it’s worth it for the health benefits alone, but most important of all, it’s simply fun!

Here are 7 things that happen when you stop rolling in the hay!

1. Your immune system becomes weaker and you get sick more often 

Studies show that people who have a less active sex life than others have a weaker immune system. That means that germs and infections are more likely to affect your body. In the end it will lead to you getting sick more often.

2. You get irritable and stressed

People who have more sex are less likely to get stressed. That’s because sex releases anti-stress hormones and makes you more relaxed. Sex also makes you less irritable.

3. You get a hard time getting aroused (no pun intended) 

In many ways sex is like working out. The less you do it, the worse you’ll feel. And like most sports, practice makes perfect. If you don’t practice, it will get harder next time. Men can experience troubles getting erections and women may have a hard time reaching orgasm.

4. Your dreams may change

It’s common to start dreaming of sex if your sex life is suffering. Some people get vivid sex dreams and may even have orgasms in their sleep. But having sex dreams is common. About 8 percent of nighttime reveries involve some sort of sexual activity, according to a University of Montreal study. Apparently, women are getting it on in dreamland just as frequently as men.

5. You lose your libido

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t get “hornier” if you go a long time without sex. It’s the other way around. If you stop having sex your body will start decreasing the production of sex hormones. If you become abstinent you will feel less like having sex.

6. You’ll lose sleep 

Sex is a great way to go to sleep. After orgasm, the hormone prolactin is released, which is responsible for the feelings of relaxation and sleepiness.

The risk of cancer increases 

Sex may help men to ward of prostate cancer. Studies have shown that men who ejaculate frequently are at less risk of getting prostate cancer. Also, if you have an active sex life you are less prone to heart disease.
