Kadiri, the Medical Director of Pinnacle Medical Services, a health and wellness centre for psychological, behavioral, and mental health related issues, gave the advice in an interview with newsmen in Lagos.
According to her, se x 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 se x and in long term relationships were less likely to be depressed than women who went without s ex.
So, more se x is important and essential. It is a remedy to curing women from having persistent headache. “Low s exual drive, which leads to depression, should be looked into. A woman can be depressed when that s exual drive that she used to have is no more there.
Frequent active s ex can play good roles toward women’s sense of well being and quality of life.’’
Dr. Kadiri, further urged women dealing with depression to frequently indulge in sex, while boosting their self-esteem.
