So what's the cure? I'd offer that prevention may be one answer. I'm certainly not implying abstinence solves this issue, or you may just end up becoming more depressed. If you truly value partnership and intimacy when it comes to sexual experiences, and want to avoid the post-sex blues; don't jump in the sac for the physical satisfaction if the heart and mind don't agree with it. If you have self-esteem or body issues, these are things you may want to understand and address before getting involved with someone sexually. But more importantly, always talk to your family doctor, or get help from professionals; such as a sex therapist or counsellor, if you find that post-sex blues are a recurring challenge or not manageable.
