I Can’t Stop Crying After Sex

Curated From Twitter via Glamour tweet ….


This postorgasmic phenomenon is way more common than you might think—research on PCD is still pretty scarce, but one study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found nearly 50 percent of women surveyed have felt the postsex blues at some point. (Men can experience it too. ) It's believed that about 2 percent of women experience it regularly.

For most, it’s a stress release, but for others they find their body also releasing tears, emotions, and aggressiveness,” says Sunny Rodgers, a certified clinical sexologist and sex coach in Los Angeles.

The important thing is not to judge those feelings, or yourself for having them. “I try to explain that the stress release of sex can allow other pent-up emotions to be released,” she says. “Allowing those feelings to happen and dissipate can be healing.

This was a good relationship where I felt cherished and safe. “Often we think we’ve processed a past trauma”—big or small—“but the effects can linger,” Rodgers says.

Researchers aren’t 100 percent sure why some people experience this hard-core crash of emotions after sex, but it likely has something to do with our body’s reaction to all the hormones and emotions that come with sex, according to sexologists. “I believe that when an orgasm takes place, it triggers a release.

So my strategy is three-pronged: talk honestly with my partner about how I’m feeling, devote myself to self-care (writing in my journal and taking hot baths with CBD oil are my jam) when I’m feeling fragile, and acknowledge the fact that these feelings will pass and that they’re not my fault.

My episodes of postcoital crying are becoming less and less frequent, and I am happy to report my partner and I still have a robust and fabulous sex life—I never feel like a sexually needy burden to him.

After a few months of feeling like a sexually needy burden, plagued by guilt over my high sex drive and disinterested parter, I began experiencing what I would later find out sexologists call postcoital dysphoria: a sudden and unexplained sadness, even crying, after sex.

Postsex, your body is drowning in a sea of feel-good chemicals like oxytocin and dopamine, which is why every single article on the Internet says orgasms make you feel good.
