Dr Maymunah Kadiri, a psychiatrist has in an interview advised married women to have regular sex with their spouses in order to prevent depression and gain happiness.

Dr Kadiri, is a Medical Director of a health and wellness center for psychological, behavioral, and mental health related issues.

She made it clear that sex is not just to nourish a woman’s body, but it is also very important and beneficial to her mental health.

“As women, there is need for us to make our spouses our best friends if we want to be mentally healthy.

“Studies have shown that women who have more active sex and in long term relationships were less likely to be depressed than women who went without sex.

“So, more sex is important and essential. It is a remedy to curing women from having persistent headache.

“Low sexual drive, which leads to depression, should be looked into. A woman can be depressed when that sexual drive that she used to have is no more there.

“Frequent active sex can play good roles toward women’s sense of well being and quality of life,’’ Kadiri said.

She went further to explain that sex was not just for procreation and to have children, but in addition could create bonding, good companionship and sound sleep.

Dr Kadiri, who is popularly called ‘celebrity shrink’, urged women dealing with depression to frequently indulge in sex, while boosting their self-esteem.

She also advised women who are over-weight to also involve in active sex, saying doing so will boost endorphins which are happy hormones.

“The happy hormones will make them lose some calories as well as sleep better.

”Orgasms trigger the release of endorphins which are happy hormones secreted by the brain that act as effective painkillers,’’ she said.

She added that sex was not only beneficial to the men, but especially to women because it was capable of freeing them from stress.
