Making Love Or Love Fasting
When was the last time you’ve been making love?
Or, has it been a while…
Well, maybe you’ve become single again or you simply don’t have enough time to date and you want some time to pass.
When you stop making love, and you don’t feel like it for a while, you may notice some body changes or specific mood swings that might trigger some healthy issues.
Don’t worry, they won’t kill you, but they will certainly point out that it is time for you to get back in the game again.
What happens to your body when you stop making love?
1.Your Immune System Might Suffer
When you make love, Dehydroepiandrosterone hormone is released, commonly known as DHEA hormone.
This hormone gives your immune system a slight boost, making you more resistant to bacteria, viruses and other unwanted germs.
It certainly doesn’t mean you’ll catch many illnesses, but you’ll be missing out some of these benefits.
The DHEA hormone might act as an antidepressant, making your skin look great, being as great help in repairing any damaged skin tissue faster, and even increase your learning abilities.
The bottom line is, if you’re not getting “busy” on a regular basis, you are cutting yourself from those benefits, and you may become more prone to illnesses and infections that your immune system would otherwise block.
2. You Might Feel Depressed
At first, depression might occur from recent break up or divorce, and being aware of how difficult today is to find a reliable person to be with, you won’t easily jump into a new one right away.
One night stands are what they represent to be, and if you practice them more often, eventually you’ll end up depressed.
This doesn’t mean you should stop dating and seeking your true love, but from health issues point of view, sudden stop of bed activities might lead you to a slight depressive state.
It is known that while “exercising”, happy hormones are released, and now, suddenly you cut back on them and it takes its toll leading you to anxiety and depression. No happy hormones are being released anymore.
3. Higher Stress Levels
Well, maybe stress levels will not rise up to the roof, but they will certainly increase up to a point. According to Psychology Today, the endorphins released during sex are ideal for leaving your worries behind and putting an instant smile on your face.
So when you’ve gone a while without any “bed activity”, you might notice that your stress levels are building up, and when you cut back on love, you won’t have that glowing after “it” face.
While you put yourself into gear again, try some other physical activities to boost your happy hormones that will make you smile more. Gym is ideal until…
4. Sudden Libido Drop
The phrase “use it” or “lose it” might be true for men, but not for women. Women can come back any time more easily, especially when they are in their most fertile years. Body simply adjusts when there is no “drive” to it.
Like any other muscle in the body, studies have shown that when a man doesn’t use “it” for a while, he’s more likely to develop an erectile dysfunction.
A period of abstinence will lessen sexual desire over time as your body dampens hormonal response to the matter, but others disagree, as they say it may be a personal matter that depends on your own previous experiences.
5. Your Cardio Might Suffer For A While
It is already known that exercising is good for your health in general and cardio health especially. Since exercise is good, why not to add some more of it in your bedroom too?
It is scientifically proven that it lowers the blood pressure and besides being a great way to raise your heart rate, it also helps you keep your estrogen and testosterone level.
When either one of those two are low, you begin to get lots of health problems, including bone problems such as osteoporosis.
6. You Will Have Lower UTI And STD Risk
When you stop the practice of making love, you lower the risk of getting and urinary tract infections which are often caused by the transfer of bacteria to the urinary tract during sex.
They’re painful, frustrating, and seems never ending. Pleasure can become unpleasant in some cases.
Fasting from some love can make you safe, but it doesn’t mean you should stop the practice. Protection is all you need.
7. You Might Gain Weight
Taking into consideration everything above mentioned, being depressed can make you being a best friend to your refrigerator. And not to mention the lack of exercise. Both can ruin your waistline.
After you stop burning those “bed calories”, you will notice how your body is changing and your clothes are becoming tight.
Do you want that to happen? Certainly not, and that is why in your period of abstinence you should hit the gym and maintain your health even without any “horizontal lambada” included.
8. You’ll Might Have Brain Fogginess
Memory loss can be a side affect when you stop making love. Why? Because sex boosts the functionality of the hippocampus, which is a small part of the brain that helps with your long-term memory.
During sex, new neurons are produced by this area of the brain, which significantly help you with your memory problems, according to at least one study.
When the bedroom activities stops for prolonged period of time, this boost in memory and cognitive functions slowly disappear.
And now, considering all above elaborated, what will you do? Practice it or leave it for while?
