sex - increase in weight

I have a doubt for a long time. I got married a year back. After marriage my weight has increased much (approx 10kgs more). I heard from my friend that if i have frequent sex my weight will increase. Is it true? In the past month i had sex daily continously for 10 days. I could drasitically see that my wieght has increased 5 more kgs.Usually we have sex 3 or times in a week. We use condoms.

My eating habbits doesnt change. I am doing excerise daily. My heamoglobin count is very good.(12.6).

This question may seems to be very silly but i am suffering with weight gain. I was slim before marriage and now i am above BMI level.

Can any one of you please help me?

Sex will only cause you to gain weight if it makes you pregnant.
Empower Yourself.

Did you start on birth control pills? That could make you gain weight. Having sex will not make you gain weight.

What you heard is probably not true.

Could be are living comfortably.

Anyway...I really don't know.

Do you feel hungry after sex?? if you are like me.....I get very thirsty after sex. I tend to pee a lot!

Maybe you can add 1 hour more to your daily exercise routine.

Re: sex - increase in weight

if you take in more calories than you burn off each day you will gain weight. Its silly to say that sex causes it, unless because you are having sex you are laying around and not burning off calories.
common myth, sex causes weight that I could understand believing more that what you heard. But having sex burns very few calories.
Eat less or exercise more or both to lose the weight.
