Irregular sex can cause mental disorder in women- Psychatrist, Dr Maymunah Kadiri
According to psychiatrist, Dr Maymunah Kadiri, women risk mental disorder without having regular sex. She further advised married women to have regular sex with their spouses in order to prevent depression and gain happiness.
Kadiri, gave the advice in an interview in Lagos. According to her, sex is not just to nourish a woman’s body, but it is also beneficial to her mental health.
“As women, there is 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 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,’’
She explained that sex was not just for procreation and to have children, adding that it could create bonding, good companionship and sound sleep.
She added that sex was not only beneficial to the men, but especially to women because it was capable of freeing them from stress.
