Hi, Dr. Allem is it true that sexual intercourse reduces acne build up? If it's true, how often should I have sex per week or month?


Thank you for your enquiry. I’m afraid this is an old wives tale. Having regular sex is not going to make any difference to your acne. In the majority of cases, acne is in fact related to gut health and immunity. The best way to ascertain the best course of action is to see an integrative DR who specializes in functional medicine. You are welcome to contact any Branch of the Renewal Institute to make an appointment with one of our Health Renewal Doctors.
