Sexual Health and Personal Wellness: Anti-Inflammatory Effects of Sex
We all know there are tremendous benefits associated with sex (aside from the sheer pleasure the act brings), and that higher rates of sex and ejaculation are associated with higher levels of penis health in men. Now there's a new study which seems to suggest that more frequent sex may help fight inflammation in the body.
Most people hear about inflammation and have a vague idea about it, but what is inflammation, exactly?
Inflammation is the body's way of responding to an outside threat, like too much stress or an infection. So when a guy feels poorly and gets swollen glands, or when he gets a cut and that cut gets red and swollen, that means that body is using inflammation to fight infection. White blood cells, along with nutrients that encourage immune cells into action, have descended on the site and basically set up camp. They're fighting the infection, and when they win, the inflammation goes away.
The problem occurs when the immune system goes a little awry and overdoes things. Too much inflammation can cause a variety of problems, including gum disease, inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis or hardening of the arteries.
The sex connection
So how does sex enter into all this? According to a recent study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, there may indeed be a connection - at least for older adults.
Scientists in Australia looked at about 4,500 English men and women (average age of 66) who participated in a self-survey that included questions about sexual activity (as well as many other areas). These participants also provided blood samples.
The scientists looked at the blood samples for specific biomarkers. A biomarker is a measurable indicator of some biological state or condition and in this case, the scientists were interested in biomarkers that indicate inflammation is present. Three were chosen - c-reactive proteins, fibrinogen and white blood cells. The higher the levels of these in the blood, the more likely that inflammation was present.
The researchers then compared the level of these biomarkers with how sexually active a participant was. Those who had more frequent sex were found to have less chance of increased c-reactive proteins and white blood cells. (They also, perhaps not so coincidentally, scored higher on their quality of life answers as well.) There was no correlation between frequency of sexual activity and the levels of fibrinogen, however.
Does this mean that older people that should get more sexually active to keep inflammation away? Not necessarily. It could mean that they are more sexually active (and have a higher quality of life) because they don't have inflammatory problems. It's the chicken-or-the-egg dilemma - does more sex mean less inflammation or does less inflammation mean more sex?
Hopefully, further studies will shed light on this situation and provide a clearer answer. And if there is a connection, further studies may clarify whether it extends to younger age groups or if the benefit is restricted to older adults.

Mood swings right after the birth of a baby are quite common. Though these are the least severe variants of post-partum depression, it is crucial not to ignore the changes that are taking place in your body. Most women feel perplexed about what they can do to combat the sadness that has taken over after a joyous and happy event of welcoming a new bundle of joy into the family. About 70 to 80% of new mothers go through some kind of negative feelings and sudden bouts of depression and sadness after the birth of a child.
Symptoms of baby blues
Often, the symptoms of baby blues hit forcibly within four to five days of childbirth, though in some cases they can occur even earlier, depending on how the birthing process went. Some of the most common symptoms of post-partum anxiety include impatience and irritability, sudden urge for weeping, restlessness, fatigue and stress and a lack of concentration along with mood changes and insomnia, even when the baby is fast asleep.
How to combat the symptoms
You will be able to deal with this post-partum phase by taking a good care of yourself. You can take several measure to make yourself feel at ease, particularly when you are faced with the worst bouts of baby blues. You can speak with someone you trust regarding how you feel and what you feel like doing. It is crucial to maintain a well regulated diet, and though this is always important, having a baby increases the probability of causing mood swings.
You can also maintain a journal to note down your feelings and emotions, as it helps in venting out negative thoughts. You can go outside and enjoy some fresh air and enjoy the life that exists beyond your new routine of feeding, changing diapers and caring for the newborn. Sometimes, being exposed to a different view can make a great difference. You should not pressurise yourself for achieving perfection for the first few weeks. Slowly, things would fall in place and before you know it, you will have adjusted yourself to the new routine.
It is crucial to bear in mind that you are not alone with your thoughts and feelings as these things are faced by mothers across the world. But it is vital to note here that if your indications don’t seem to subside even after a few weeks, it can be a sign of a more serious health issue and you may need to be diagnosed by an expert.
