Benefits of masturbation for women's health

The act of masturbation leading to orgasm can help women reduce stress, sleep well, reduce menstrual pain, increase libido, and balance emotions.

Masturbation (or sexual self-satisfaction) has many health benefits for women. Similar to exercise or massage, self-stimulation is a way for women to relax mentally and physically.

Pain relief during menstruation

During menstruation, the uterus contracts to shed the lining, which can cause cramping pain. Orgasms increase blood flow to the genitals, releasing natural pain relievers - endorphins that can relieve cramps. This is similar to how exercise can help get rid of menstrual cramps.

Reduce symptoms of menopause - perimenopause

Menopause occurs when the levels of hormones such as estrogen and progesterone produced by the ovaries become so low that the body no longer has a menstrual cycle. The average age of menopause is about 51 years old. Women who have had a hysterectomy or cancer treatment such as chemotherapy may have an earlier menopause.

In addition to regulating the menstrual cycle, estrogen also helps promote vaginal lubrication. Therefore, when this hormone decreases leading to perimenopause - menopause women can face vaginal atrophy. This means that the vagina may be drier than usual, leading to discomfort (especially during sex).

There are different treatments that include the use of lubricants and vaginal moisturizers. However, staying sexually active can be helpful because it increases blood flow to the organ, promoting more lubrication. Masturbation can also help relieve discomfort.

Promote desire

Many people experience low sex drive at a particular time in their lives. According to the Mayo Clinic, there are many potential causes, including depression, pain during sex, drinking too much alcohol, chronic illness, and fatigue. A woman looking to increase her libido is encouraged to masturbate as it can lead to better sexual thoughts and reactions.

Reduce stress, get a good night's sleep

When the body has an orgasm, the brain works hard to produce various hormones and neurochemicals including serotonin and dopamine. The hormone oxytocin is also released, which can give women a feeling of peace and closeness, reduce anxiety, and sleep better.

At the same time, during orgasm, the heart rate increases, although not comparable to jogging for half an hour, but this is good for heart health. Similarly, women will feel contractions when climaxing, this can be a way to exercise, strengthen the pelvic floor. Some studies have even shown that orgasms can boost immune function.
