American scientists have found that the onset of sexual activity changes the immunity of women
The onset of sexual activity changes a woman’s immunity, researchers at the University’s Institute of Medicine found Washington. The fact that American doctors have found a connection between the first sex and female immunity, reported edition news-medical.net.
Scientists have noticed that girls from 15 to 24 years old have a higher risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) than older women. According to the lead author of the study, a gynecologist Sean Hughesexperts studied changes in women’s immunity before and after the onset of sexual activity to find out if sexual debut affects vulnerability to STDs.
Studies have shown that after the sexual debut in the body of a woman, protective immune proteins begin to be more actively produced. At the same time, scientists are not sure whether this increases the risk of the disease or lowers it. In addition, they cannot say for sure whether such a change is caused by sexual activity.
Scientists have suggested that such an immune response may be associated with the stimulation of reproductive function or is a defense mechanism against infections.
Previously an expert Keith Taylor named ways to restore sexual life to spouses over 70 years old. According to her, older couples who, due to age, cannot boast of good health, need to enjoy preparing for sex.
