Semen – The New Natural Cure For Depression In Women

A recent study by The State University of New York found that a woman’s happiness levels and sleep quality could be related to the quantity of semen going into her body during sex.

The survey that involved 293 college women at SUNY Albany revealed that semen contains a range of mood-boosting and sleep-inducing hormones that enter a woman’s blood through her vagina, thus alleviating and elevating her mood. 

They discovered semen may contain high doses of mood-elevating estrone and oxytocin, cortisol, melatonin, anti-depressant prolactin, thyrotropin releasing hormone and serotonin.

In the survey, the researchers found that women who used condoms (and were therefore less exposed to semen) were more likely to be depressed than those who did not use condoms. On the other hand, among women who did not use condoms, the longer they went without having sex (or being exposed to semen), the more likely they were to be depressed.

Semen is best known for what's not absorbed by the vagina, sperm, which swim through it on their way into the fallopian tubes where fertilisation takes place. But sperm comprise only about 3% of semen. The rest is seminal fluid: mostly water, plus about 50 compounds: sugar (to nourish sperm), immunosuppressants (to keep women's immune systems from destroying sperm), and oddly, two female sex hormones.

In addition to antidepressant compounds, semen also contains two female sex hormones, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). FSH spurs egg maturation in ovary.

LH is involved in triggering ovulation. This might explain why many women report increased interest in sex around the time of ovulation.

The findings found women who described themselves as “promiscuous” yet used condoms were as depressed as women who practice abstinence. The team said that this suggested it is semen, not just sex, that makes women happy.

This came in the same month Gordon Gallup, a psychologist at SUNY-Albany, proposed semen also helped women suffering from morning sickness. Gallup theorised that pregnant women often feel nauseous because their bodies are rejecting the semen’s genetic material as alien.

It thus follows that ingesting the same sperm would allow the body to build up a tolerance.

This topic should be approached with extreme caution. Not everyone can afford to have unprotected sex and casual sex should always be approached with protection. Just because semen may exhibit certain antidepressant properties does not mean one should indulge in sex with no forms of protection. Even with protection, sex can lead to pregnancy.
