The Medical Director of Pinnacle Medical Services, Dr Maymunah Kadiri has advised that women should have frequent sex with their spouses as a way of boosting their happiness.
Kadiri in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) says sex was not meant to nourish the body alone but also has mental benefits.
“As women, there is a need for us to make our spouses our best friends if we want to be mentally healthy.
“Studies have shown that women who have more active sex and in long-term relationships were less likely to be depressed than women who went without sex.
“So, more sex is important and essential. It is a remedy to curing women from having a persistent headache.
“Low sexual drive, which leads to depression, should be looked into. A woman can be depressed when that sexual drive that she used to have is no more there.
“Frequent active sex can play good roles toward women’s sense of well being and quality of life,’’ Kadiri said.
She furthered that sex also helps in building good companionship, creating bonding and ensuring sound sleep.
The medical expert also called on over-weight women to involve in active sex, noting that such action will bolster endorphins which are happy hormones.
“The happy hormones will make them lose some calories as well as sleep better.
”Orgasms trigger the release of endorphins which are happy hormones secreted by the brain that act as effective painkillers,’’ she said.
