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.
