Stacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answeredWhile no specific research proves that having sex prevent colds, sex is a form of physical exercise, and exercise is known to boost immunity and help your body fight infections. Sex may also relieve stress, which can lower the body’s defenses against disease.

Eva Cwynar, MD, Endocrinology/diabetes/metabolism, answeredSex boosts immunity. College students in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, took part in a study in which they reported the frequency of sex they had.
