Stuffy Nose While Having Sex? A Singapore Doctor Tells You Why
Stuffy Nose While Having Sex? A Singapore Doctor Tells You Why

As pleasurable as the activity is, sex can be a complex and rather sensitive issue for many couples. An array of factors can come together and lead up to either a good time in bed or awkward situations that you would both rather forget about.

Aside from the more common culprits (such as erectile dysfunction or stress), there is another less severe but rather annoying condition that you may or may not have even heard of: a stuffy blocked nose, occurring during or after sex.

A reader on DoctorxDentist asked about why the nose can become stuffy and blocked after sex. Psychiatrist, Dr Ng Beng Yeong, responded. Here’s what he had to say.

Psychiatrist Dr Ng Beng Yeong recently answered questions from DoctorxDentist readers about who is most at risk for postnatal depression, and what the chances of having schizophrenia after childbirth could be. Here's what he had to share.

The Best Tips From A Singaporean Psychiatrist On How To Take Care Of Your Mental Health

Mental health is more than just a diagnosis. It doesn't only refer to psychiatric or psychological disorders that require actual medical attention. 

It's about your overall mental health—how you feel about yourself, your ability to manage your emotions, and navigate whatever is going on in your life. 

Sometimes, you might find yourself stuck in negative thoughts due to difficult moments in your life. A 21-year-old reader asked a question on DxD's QnA platform, seeking advice on what he should do to improve his emotional health.

Dr Ng Beng Yeong, DxD's resident psychiatrist offered some pearls of wisdom on how you can reclaim your true self in the face of such challenges.
