Whether you’re in the honeymoon phase or you and your partner just can’t seem to leave the bedroom, you might be wondering if there’s such a thing as too much sex.
The good news is, as long as you are happy and comfortable physically and emotionally, you can enjoy as much sex as you want.
But there are certainly uncomfortable physical situations that can arise from having too much sex — here’s what you should look out for.

Each person’s definition of a good sex life is different, and while some people are perfectly fine to rarely have sex, others prefer to have it multiple times a day.

Still, you might be wondering if it’s possible to have too much sex. Whether you’re in the honeymoon phase with a new partner, on vacation enjoying getaway sex thanks to all that extra free time, or point-blank love having a lot of sex, you might wonder how much is too much for your body and mind to handle.

The good news is, as long as both you and your partners are happy and comfortable, there really is no such thing as too much sex.

“There’s no limit to the amount of sex anyone can have, but there are physical issues that might leave you a little, shall we say, uncomfortable days later,” Diana Bitner, M.D., an OB/GYN told Women’s Health Magazine. Even though you can have as much sex as you’re comfortable with, there are plenty of surefire signs that your body has had enough.

The first obvious sign is vaginal dryness. If things are feeling dry down below, it might be because your body has experienced too much prolonged contact or penetration. When this happens, tiny micro-tears in the vagina can occur, which can be seriously painful.

“Vaginal tears can happen with too much sex, especially if there are any other conditions such as vaginal dryness from low dose birth control pills,” said Dr. Bitner.

“Too much” sex can cause a urinary tract or vaginal infection if you’re not careful.

Sherry Ross, M.D., an OB/GYN and women’s health expert in Santa Monica, California agreed, noting that the more sex you have in a short amount of time, the less natural moisture your body is able to produce.

“This typically causes friction and pain, which is your body’s signal to press pause,” she told Women’s Health Magazine.

Too much sex can also cause irritation, chafing, or rashes on the external skin around the vulva, and your labia can become engorged and swollen, added Dr. Bitner.

Another unpleasant side effect of too much sex is an increase in the risk of bladder and vaginal infections, particularly in women. Bodily fluids can knock your vagina’s natural pH levels out of whack making you more susceptible to infection.

You should always use the bathroom before and after sex to help keep your vagina healthy, but too much intercourse can still cause an infection, and you might not notice until days later.
