Here’s what you can expect to happen when you’re not having regular s*x, as the Mirror reports:
Your libido goes
“For some people who refrain from s*x, they begin to feel more sluggish, with less vitality and hunger for s*x,” Sari Cooper, LCSW, certified s*x therapist told Reader’s Digest .
“Out of sight out of mind is how some of my clients describe the scenario.”
Your vaginal walls may weaken
Sari explains, “Without regular frequency of intercourse as you get older the walls of your v**ina thin out and can lead to painful s*x when you finally get back into the sack.”
You may experience a loss of lubrication
“If you take a young woman who’s 20 or 30 years old she’s going to have plenty of oestrogen around to make sure those tissues stay healthy, elastic, and lubricated when she’s not having s*x,” explains Dr.Lauren Streicher.
“If you take someone who’s 60 and has no estrogen, she has lost that piece of it.”
To mitigate the combined effects of a lack of s*x and ageing, Sari advises the following.
“The vaginal lubrication lessens with age, and if you’re not being turned on through self-pleasure, er*tic books, videos, or a partner, the juice can begin to lessen more quickly.”
Your period pain may get worse
“The uterus is a muscle and many women will actually have a uterine contraction when they climax, which will cause the blood to expel more quickly, which will in turn decrease menstrual cramps,” Dr Streicher explains.
“Also, there may be an increase in endorphins, which also will help with menstrual cramps.”
