Losing one’s virginity opens doors to a lot of health benefits in addition to the never-ending bliss it has in store. While being sexually active can relieve people of many mental and even physical health issues, life changes in many more ways.

For women, getting a lot of sex is just the beginning, since their bodies undergo several changes and the way they see life also transforms. Here are six major changes that women experience in their body when they start having sex.

1. Breasts become firmer

The body does undergo direct transformations as the nervous system getting all excited leads to activity in blood vessels which lead to breast swelling up. Breasts can actually become up to 25% bigger during sex and a while after that. The size and firmness can actually vary depending on the level of arousal.

2. Nipples become more sensitive

Another effect of getting more sex is that it triggers more blood flow and muscular tension in some areas including the nipple and the areola which is the part surrounding the nipple. This process called vasocongestion makes nipples hard, gives goose bumps and can even lead to an orgasm.  But the nipples become sensitive in general, which means they can get hard even when one has an erotic thought.

3. The world seems like a better place

Sex actually makes you more cheerful and once again oxytocin, aptly known as the happy hormone, is responsible for it. Women release much more oxytocin then men during sex, and this can suddenly make a person very cheerful. Meanwhile dopamine makes people more confident and testosterone can make you more assertive.

4. The clitoris and uterus learn how to respond

While the vagina may seem inactive before losing one’s virginity, you’ll be amazed to find out how it can learn to function by expanding and contracting on its own. Before and during sexual intercourse, the clitoris swells and the uterus rises a bit, which is something they remember to do the next time you have sex.

5. Elasticity of the vagina changes

After losing virginity, the vagina adjusts to the activity by stretching a bit more than before. When you are aroused enough, the lips of the vagina open up to welcome whatever comes its way. This then gets added to the memory and the vagina behaves accordingly then onwards. That’s why having sex frequently can make penetration more comfortable.

6. Lubrication feels completely different

After women start having sex, the wetness is not the same ever again. While masturbation might make a woman feel wet while going solo, the wetness coming from arousal by a partner is much more intense. Lubrication then also keeps on varying for the rest of a person’s life depending on emotional state and menstrual cycle.
