New research shows that there may be scientific evidence to prove that headaches really can affect our sex drive.
The study which looked at the mating habits of a bunch of mice (we're basically the same) found that the female's sexual desire was greatly decreased when she was feeling under the weather. Makes sense.
However, every cloud as sex can also cure plenty of other illnesses so take a look at our guide to nature's natural ailment remedy...
Time between the sheets reduces stress & lowers blood pressure
It's true: According to findings from a Scottish study, people who have regular sex are less nervous in stressful situations like doing mental maths out loud and speaking in public.
Other studies have found that frequent sex is associated with lower diastolic blood pressure. In women, affectionate kisses, hugs and hand holding can have a similar effect.
A bit of action can help you sleep better & boost your mood
After an orgasm your natural levels of endorphins and mood-boosting 'cuddle chemical' oxytocin are raised, which means you feel happier.
Not only will you be physically tired, but research has shown that the influx of hormones in the brain post-sex can promote deep and restful sleep.
Dull skin will be rejuvenated
After sex the female body experiences a surge in oestrogen, which makes eyes brighter, hair shinier and skin more radiant.
Because arousal causes an increase in blood pressure that lasts around 20 minutes, our lips also swell and look bigger and redder after sex.
