1. Exhaustion

If you are having too much sex with your partner, the body releases norepinephrine, adrenaline and cortisol into the bloodstream which results in an increase in heart rate, glucose metabolism and blood pressure. This becomes an exercise for the body and makes you feel tired when done occasionally. Your exhaustion may lead to fatigue all day if you have too much sex.

2. Addiction

Another thing that happens when you have too much sex is that you can get addicted to it. A person with a sexual addiction can harm his or her relationship with their partner because you become obsessed with sex or have an abnormally intense sex drive. Even if your partner doesn't want to have sex, your urge is uncontrollable.

3. Sore Penis

After sex, many men may experience sharp pain that lasts a few seconds which is normal. When you are frequently engaged in sex, it could lead to a sore penis due to extended manual stimulation, or ejaculating forcibly, and so on. If the pain lasts longer for a few hours or a few days, then chances are that there is an infection in the testicles, prostate, epididymis, or you may have contracted sexually transmitted diseases.

4. Bruises Or Rug Burns

If your partner loves rough sex, beware! Having too much rough sex daily leads to rug burns which occur when the heat from the friction damages the skin. This may make you feel uncomfortable and you might be unable to have sex in certain positions. No one likes to have bruised skin near their genitals!

5. Inflammation And Swelling In Women

Women who have too much sex can experience a condition called vaginal excoriation which refers to the scrapping of the vulva skin during penetration. This condition occurs when there is too much friction during sex that hurts the vaginal walls which further causes burning while urinating or difficulty in walking resulting from a swollen vagina.

6. Losing Interest In The Middle Of The Act

Though sex may make you active, too much of it may make you lose interest in the middle of the act, especially when you have sex daily. This happens because your body is so tired due to daily sexual activities and it needs some rest too.

7. Lower Back Pain

Another indication that you are having too much sex is lower back pain. It's normal to have lower back pain when there are sudden movements that put too much stress on the lower back. But, when these sudden movements become extreme overtime, it could cause chronic lower back pain.

8. Risk Of Contracting UTI

Women who are sexually active tend to have higher risks of getting UTI compared to women who aren't sexually active. Having sex daily with different partners mainly puts you at risk of contracting a UTI because frequent sexual intercourse transmits bacteria into a woman's urinary tract leading to the development of a UTI.
