allyson.m88:  I’ve never had 24-hour after-effects. Maybe if we were up all night and did it a few times, but for normal everyday sex, nope. It’s just a fun part of life, no extra sleep required. I’m not sure what could be causing your sleepiness. Hope you figure it out soon.

Your hormones may be out of balance.

Do you do other activities that require endurance (sports, exercise)? If not, your body could just not be used to that level of activity and therefore causes fatigue.

I agree with ABL12490; it sounds hormonal or possibly that you’re deficient in a nutrient of somesort, unless you’re in very poor shape and your sessions are quite strenuous and/or lengthy. Otherwise, you may want to see an endocrinologist to make sure everything is on the up and up.

Does the same thing happen if the session is very short, or if you masturbate? You might want to test to see if it happens if you give yourself an orgasm quickly in comparison to actual sex with your husband, or if it’s a long session verses a short session.

If it happens regardless of how quickly it occurs, or if you experience the same exhaustion after masturbating, it’s most likely something hormonal or type of deficiency.

There are semen allergies, but most likely it wouldn’t cause that problem. If you don’t use a condom, and it only seems to occur when you two have sex (not when you masturbate), regardless of the length of the session, it might have to do with a sensitivity to his seminal fluid.

If it only happens when you have a long session with him, it’s probably related to stamina and/or a possibly a nutrient deficiency. If it happens ONLY with long and very short session with him (but not masturbating), it probably has something to do with him (physiologically). If it happens no matter what you do to reach orgasm, it’s probably hormonal or a deficiency.
Maybe try to track the sessions/times, and either masturbate (or if you’re uncomfortable with that, have him bring you to climax without any type of fluid exchange, as quickly as possible) and see if there’s any differences.

Are you otherwise a tense or anxious person? Maybe the relaxation and endorphins you’re experiencing are such a stark contrast to your body’s normal state that it seriously relaxes you and wipes you out.


Do some experimenting and tracking and then go from there =)

allyson.m88:  I’m always  desperately in need of a nap after! But 24 hours of tired? Not usually. I’m pretty sure feeling tired after is either normal or you and I both have weird systems.

spideringspider:  what do you mean by something to do with him physiologically? Now I’m curious!

You actually may want to go see a doctor. Whenever I have had heart issues in my life it involves being extremely tired and since this happens after the “cardiovascular workout” you are getting then it may be related to an underlying issue.
