Sex can trigger ‘remarkable’ responses in women – including altered fertility, immunity, libido, eating and sleep patterns – by the activation of diverse sets of genes, according to a study.
Scientists from the University of East Anglia (UEA) investigated fruit flies, but say their findings could in principle be akin to responses in many animals – including humans – where sperm and semen is released inside the female’s body during sex.
They discovered that a single protein found in semen generates a wide range of responses in many genes in females, which become apparent at different times and in different parts of the female’s body following mating.
