Maintaining a good sex life will avert psychiatric disorders and emotional imbalance, says a Nigerian psychiatric, Dr Maymunah Kadiri.
She said women who enjoy active sex life and in long term relationships are  unlikely to be depressed than women who are under-sex or without it.

 

As women, there is a need for us to make our spouses our best friends if we want to be mentally healthy, Kadiri said in Lagos on Thursday.

 

“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,” the expert said.

 

Depression is a common mental disorder that causes people to experience depressed mood, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, low energy and poor concentration, according to experts

 

Kadiri, the medical director of Pinnacle Medical Services, Lagos, said active sex can play good roles toward women’s sense of well being and enhanced quality living.

She stressed: “Sex is not just for procreation and to have children, adding that it could create bonding, good companionship and sound sleep.”
