Could not having enough sex affect your health? The Doctors answer a viewer's question about whether there are any side effects of not having sex.
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry first notes, "There are lots of healthy, happy abstinent people out there."
But she goes on to explain that as a woman moves into a menopause transition that sexual intercourse can be helpful to help with a decease into estrogen levels, which can lead to vaginal atrophy. She explains this is a thinning or dryness of the vaginal skin and she says sexual intercourse -- with or without a partner -- can help to increase blood flow to that area which can help make that tissue more elastic.
If sex is not an option, she says a vaginal estrogen cream can also help treat this issue. She also notes that sex has been shown to also help some with depression and anxiety.
