Everything you need to know about post coital depression
Have you ever cried after sex?
If you’ve ever suffered from those post sex blues, chances are that you might have post-coital depression.
Yes, it’s the strange phenomenon where you feel sad or down immediately after consensual sex and just can’t explain it.
We asked Stuart Nugent, the resident sex expert at sex toy company LELO to tell us more…
What is post coital depression?
‘This term might be related to a medically semi-recognised and partially researched phenomenon called ‘postcoital dysphoria’ which is a temporary mood drop after sex. It’s reported often enough that it’s statistically significant, but is seriously lacking in scientific study – as is the way with so much of our complex sex lives.
Another term for a similar scenario is postcoital tristesse, or post-sex sadness. It’s not clear if these two things or the same or not, but one thing is relatively clear: it’s not depression. Depression is a medically attested condition. Postcoital dysphoria seems to be temporary, common, and not chronic.’
Is there a cure?
‘Time, talking, intimacy (or space, for some) and rest are key. If you experience dysphoria after sex to such an extent that you’re worried that there may be an issue, then the issue may be some factor unrelated to sex. Perhaps an existing depressive condition may be at work, or perhaps you’re not hydrated enough.
