I’ve heard that once a woman starts having sex on a regular basis, she gains weight around her breasts and hips. Is this correct? I’m about to get married. Please let me know. – Contributed by Anonymous
Dr. Asha Jain’s response: It is a widely held belief that when women begin to make love, they gain weight on their breasts and hips. This, however, is a complete myth. There is no physiological reason for a woman’s breasts or hips to become enlarged or disfigured after she begins having sex. Ejaculated sperm cannot be digested and assimilated into the bloodstream. In any case, two to three ml of sperm (average ejaculation) only contains about 15 calories!
According to some studies, people gain weight after marriage. However, according to unconfirmed reports, this is true for both men and women. And, for either gender, the weight gain has nothing to do with sex. People often gain weight due to the comfort of being in a relationship and the associated sense of security. According to studies, people in relationships tend to eat more than single people. Exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet if you want to avoid gaining weight after marriage.
