Does being sexually active make ladies gain weight?
THERE’S THIS VERY POPULAR “Social Myth” with regard to SEX that’s been around for ages.
It’s a myth so popular and so widely believed among even the guys and ladies that no one wants to doubt it, even though they know better.
However, each time I hear it, I laugh. Not just because it’s crazy, but because it’s become an “unquestionable truth” in our society.
You wanna know what it is?
Lemme tell you then.
Wait, I’m coming lemme think first 😋😋😋
I’m coming na. Wait small 😋😋
Here is the myth:
In our society today, a lot of people believe that the semen of a man, popularly but wrongly called SPERM actually makes a woman to have bigger and rounder buttocks, hips, breasts and shape.
In fact eeh….
More women believe it more than men sef
And any lady who doesn’t agree is accused of taking “expired sp.erm”.
A while ago the argument was raging on a popular Facebook group known as Rant HQ
Everybody unanimously agreed that “semen” is so nutritious to a woman’s body that it makes her have a finer shape like bottle of Coke 🤣😂 😂 🤣
What is your take on it?

Eleke Flexzy-Felix Ogonna response,
Here is my take on this………………
I don’t really think it is a misconception, at least from the little I know _ semen is almost 60% protein.. u and i knows wat protein does to the body (They aid in building muscles).
I once read an article about a particular product used by athletes to develop their muscles, this product is called “Anabolic steroid” The said product was formulated to mimic the male sex hormone “testosterone” which naturally helps in muscle development in male.
The buttocks itself is a muscle and as a matter of fact it is the largest muscle in human body (Gluteal muscle) so I actually don’t doubt those that believes it builds muscle because some of dem are living witnesses to it.
As long as there is protein there _ then I don’t doubt it bro _ just like u said _impossibility is nothing.
Antonio Gramsc, Okay speaking scientifically, what is accepted:
1) Girls/women when they start having sex usually use early morning pill,(Oral contraceptive pills) after sex to prevent pregnancy, so one of the side effect of this drug is weight gain(Fat deposition),
2) Well in-addition sha,
Semen/ejaculate contains Fructose and Glycoprotein.
So there is an iota of Truth in what people think, but they have the wrong explanation/reason to this weight gain
Udomoh Eshemokha, DOES REGULAR SEX MAKE YOU GAIN WEIGHT? Sex does not make you gain weight but an imbalance of sex hormones can impact your body weight. However, this imbalance has nothing to do with your sexual activity. In fact it depends on a range of factors like your puberty age, menstrual cycle and menopause. It is fluctuation in sex hormones such as DHEA, estrogen and progesterone that contribute to weight gain. If you are deficient in DHEA hormone (which is a precursor to sex hormones, both in men and women), then you might gain weight. Instabilities in estrogen and progesterone hormones can also make you gain weight. Get your hormones checked at regular intervals as this might help you prevent unexpected weight gain.
Ogechi Amaechi, Dr. Please teach us because almost everybody believes it. So if u have an objection to it bring it out and let us learn from it. Thanks once again.
Choice Maxwell, I feel it’s not true I know some naturally endowed Virgins so I don’t agree to that.
Faith Ehigie, I think the body changes after being sexually active. But the the explanation is complicated. Maybe it because of the use of postinor or oral contraceptive pills. Also the exposure of the female body to high levels of progesterone and oestrogen from sexual exposures make ladies fat.
Janet Alowe, the question is what happens to a girl’s body after losing virginity? Better still, does your body change after losing your virginity? I think yes from personal experience. I realised I gained weight after my first sexual contact. Maybe it was because I was growing rapidly during that time. Some ladies actually experience bodily changes when they become sexually active probably because of hormones.
Amaka Beloved Anudu, Casey no be small thing ooo,nt only big buttocks they believed in,even they believed that it smoothens skin,clear pimples, so if you are having pimples as a lady,they will tell you that it’s because you don’t have sex .
