Inflammatory Biomarkers Linked to Sexual Activity and Quality of Life

Scientists have found associations among sexual activity, inflammation, and quality of life in older people, according to new research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. 

The study included approximately 4,500 men and women in England (average age 66 years), who completed questionnaires about their sexual activity, general health, lifestyle habits, and quality of life. 

Blood samples from each participant was tested for three biomarkers that can indicate inflammation: C-reactive protein, fibrinogen, and white blood cells. 

Those who were sexually active tended to have lower levels of C-reactive protein and white blood cells than those who did not have regular sex, a result that suggests less inflammation. Sexually-active participants also tended to have better results on the quality of life assessment.
