Hormonal changes

Director of the Berman Center for women’s sexual health in Chicago, Laura Berman, Ph.D. said:

"Stress makes you tired, distracted and unmotivated to do anything, much less have sex, When a woman is stressed, the hormonal changes in her body trigger a chemical reaction causing sex hormone–binding globulin to bind with testosterone cells, so they’re unavailable for libido and sexual response."

Associate professor in the Department of Psychology at SUNY Oswego, Rebecca Burch, said:

"There's not much that's more reinforcing than orgasm, If it were only these hormones that determined how sex impacts us, then, yes, good sex would likely put us in a good mood."
