Does sex boost immunity?

Health Lifestyle

‘Have sex, it boosts immunity. , ‘

Has the doctor given you this advice? Certainly not. But Faith Coates, an Arizona physician, offers this advice. The doctor did not limit his advice to her room, but spread it on the Internet.

Coates made a video on TikTok. He has revealed this among his 618,000 followers. One of her fans asked, “Orgasm saves us from getting sick, is that true or false?”

In response, Coates shared a video. In it he says, ‘Truth! Having sex at least once or twice a week makes the immune system work 30 percent better. This is the advice of doctors. ‘

That’s not all Coates said. Research has been published in various journals. Research articles on sex or healthy sex have many benefits. Sometimes it boosts immunity, sometimes it keeps the heart healthy and sometimes it reduces stress and improves the mind.

A 2004 study claimed that having sex at least twice a week increased the amount of immunoglobulin A in the body. It is a type of antibody that helps to increase immunity from mucous tissues of salivary glands, nose, vagina, etc. However, this study has not been repeated since 2004. But there has been a lot of research on heart research and sex.

For example, in 2018, a research paper was published in the American Journal of Cardiology. It states that men who have sex more than twice a week are less likely to have a heart attack than those who have sex only once a month.

The question of whether it has any effect on those who have some heart problem remains. According to the American Heart Association, sex is safe for anyone who can exercise three to five metabolic equivalents (MET) without any worries.
The amount of energy consumed during physical labor is measured by the metabolic equilibrium. For example, a low-impact aerobic exercise consumes 5 MET of energy.

Another study conducted in 2016 claimed that women who have regular sex are less likely to have heart problems. However, there was a warning in this study. Excessive sexual activity can sometimes cause heart problems in men. However, this fact contradicts some past studies. That is why many people advise to be ‘safe’, that it is better to consult a doctor if one’s partner has heart problems.

According to the study, adult women who are satisfied with their sex life are less likely to have high blood pressure. But that was not good news for men. There is another side to this. Most men who take high blood pressure medication have lower sexual desire. It can also be caused by high blood pressure and medication. Therefore, patients with high blood pressure should consult a doctor.

There are other things where sex contributes positively. A 2019 study found that intimacy with a partner helps maintain normal levels of the body’s cortisol hormone. Cortisol is a steroid hormone. When stress increases, its level in the blood rises rapidly. Sex releases hormones like oxytocin and endorphins in the body which make you feel ‘good’ which is really effective in reducing stress.

Therefore, whether the immune system increases or not, sex will definitely help to reduce stress.

The hormone prolactin is released from the body after orgasm, which brings a feeling of satisfaction. Oxytocin, endorphins reduce stress and help you sleep better.

Scientists have also discovered another unique discovery about sex. They found a good sexual relationship between men and prostate cancer. Scientists have long studied about 30,000 men.

According to the results, men who ejaculate 21 times a month are less likely to get prostate cancer than men who ejaculate 6-7 times a month.
