If you are a victim of the dreaded pollen like me, this time of year can be particularly challenging.
If it’s not new plants popping up left, right and centre, it’s the grass doing its thing and the trees pollinating all over the gaff – looks beautiful but wreaks absolute hell on my whole respiratory system!
Now, I’m not a massive fan of taking meds at the drop of a hat but I can’t lie to ya, the nasal sprays and Loratadine tabs have been become pretty staple for me…anything to reduce these symptoms man!
So imagine my joy when I discovered that actually, research suggests there may be a link between having sex and alleviating hay fever symptoms.
This idea is based on the fact that apparently, the nasal system is linked to the reproductive system.
The trail of thought is, because sex constricts the blood vessels in the nose and eyes, this could stop the congested feeling and reduced eye streaming!
*insert shocked emoji face*
At this stage, it is all just theoretical as clinical trials are yet to take place but if any of this is true, even just a little bit true, booooooyyyyy, it’s bye bye to over the counter meds and hello to even more scheeex!
Imagine, ‘oooo I’m feeling congested today babes, I’m gonna need 3-4 doses of sex today to ease my symptoms’!
Yep, sounds like a great idea huh?
OK, so sceptics have mocked the theory but I’m like…roll on the research – in fact, why wait?
I’m urging all hay fever sufferers to conduct their own research.
And yes…I want feedback!
Happy hay fever-symptom-reducing sexy time everyone.
