If you're going through a period of sexual abstinence , then beware. Your vagina is going to grow cobwebs, tumbleweeds will roll across your pelvic floor, and nobody will be able to get into your intimate bits again without a crowbar and a sacrificial goat. Oh wait, except none of that is true. There are some physical consequences of going a while without sex , but most of them are results of not getting the health benefits that sex can offer.

What Are the Effects of Not Having Sex for a Long Time — or Ever?

Back to Health A to Z. Try to not feel embarrassed about getting help. Lots of people experience problems with their sex drive and seeking advice can be the first step towards resolving the issue. One of the first things to consider is whether you're happy in your relationship. Do you have any doubts or worries that could be behind your loss of sexual desire?

What to Do If Your Partner Has Lost Interest in Sex

Research suggests that sexual satisfaction plays a pivotal role in healthy relationships according to research, but there are a number of factors that can influence the quality of a couple's sex life as well as individual sexual desire over the course of a relationship. It may a short-term problem related to stress at work or other issues that have driven your partner to distraction. Even more commonly, a sudden, hectic schedule—ranging from end-of-year exams to a do-or-die work deadline—can leave your partner exhausted and uninterested in anything more than sleep or a night in front of the TV. While dry spells like these are common and usually resolve on their own once things stabilize, a prolonged and unexplained disinterest in sex can be harmful to a relationship and the general well-being of both partners. Not only can this stir feelings of frustration and self-doubt but it may also leave you wondering whether this may be your first step toward a sexless marriage.
Sex positivity is a great thing. While there are many reasons people choose to have sex pleasure, pleasing others, intimacy, stress relief, escape, or self-validation , there are plenty of other ways to meet these reasons without having sex. More importantly, being purely and wholly disinterested in sexual activity is a choice that needs to be respected. So, in a world that oversimplifies sex, it may be helpful to understand what never having sex really means and how to explain it to others.
