Reasons you cry sometimes after having sex

It might be as a result of intense emotions for your partner

Some people find that they shed tears after having good sex with their partners. A recent survey says this isn't unusual for sexually active couples.

Men and women experience post-sex blues or primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) at least once in their lives. Very few sexually active people experience it often.

A recent study in an open access journal Sexual Medicine says that although more work needs to be done in this area, women from 25 and above have experienced this at least once in their lifetime.

People who experience PCD may become sad, cry, feel anxiety or aggressive after orgasm, though there's no known cause for post-sex blues.

There's also an hypothesis that it might be as a result of intense emotions for your partner, so much that you shed tears after sex is over.

So next time you cry after a roll in the sheets with your partner, you can explain to them that it's just the after effect of having a orgasm and has nothing to do with good or bad sex.
