All things have side effects, and something as SWEETTT as sex also has its negative effects.
Here are the negative effects of too much sex:
Too much sex affects the quality of your life. Sex is an activity that uses a lot of energy. You burn a lot of calories during sexual intercourse.
Inflammation and swelling
Those occasional and wild sex marathons may leave your genitals sore and swollen. This often happens to women who engage in too much sex. Too much sex in women leads to a condition called vaginal excoriation.
During steamy sessions in between the sheets, couples sweat and lose water from their bodies. So when your sex life is too active during day or night, you may end up being dehydrated from excessive sweating.
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)
Urinary Tract Infections typically occur when bacteria enter the urinary tract through the Urethra and begin to multiply in the bladder. Although the urinary system is designed to keep out such microscopic invaders, these defences sometimes fail. When this happens, bacteria may take hold and grow into a full-blown infection in the urinary tract. Sexually active women tend to have more UTIs than women who aren’t sexually active.
During intercourse, many hormones are released into the bloodstream. They are made at sites of tissue damage or infection, where they cause inflammation, pain and fever as part of the healing process.
Lower back pain
Those long sessions of heavy thrusting will leave your back in pain. Lower back pain is often caused by a torn/pulled muscle or ligament. This happens during sudden movements that place too much stress on the lower back during sex.
Men are often unable to climax after having too much sex in a short period of time. This is because you have exhausted or considerably ’emptied’ the sperm and semen levels.
While this might seem strange, scientists have concluded that too much sex could get you to lose your sight. This happens when blood vessels in the eyes pop during sexual activity. You need not to worry too much if this happens to you as it will heal and become normal with time.
