Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Long term sexual abstainence will result in some interesting things you may have not considered. To name a few , you could feel anxiety and may be more stressed out, your libido may lower and your immune system can become more vulnerable to name a few.

For women, the risk for UTI infections lowers and for men they could increase their risk for prostate cancer.

I hope this help.
