7 Ways Being in Love Can Affect Your Health by Dr. Drai

Hi #GYNEGirls, #Preggos, & #GENTs! It’s ME Dr. Drai- America’s OBGYN. FEBUARY is HERE and LOVE is in the air. I love this month NOT ONLY for Valentine’s Day but it is also HEART Health month. You know heart disease is the #1 killer of women. I will be blogging about this topic don’t worry. Let’s get to some “Medical T’s” (TIPs). Did you know that being in LOVE can affect your body? YASSS Hunni. I know right? In the words of Toni Braxton…How many ways, I love you, Let me count the ways… Chile Dr. Drai will count 7.

  1. Dopamine, the chemical responsible for euphoria, is released in the brain. This is why you feel HIGH as a KITE when you fall DEEP in love.
  2. The mind has a difficult time focusing on tasks. This is why you are so forgetful when LOVE strikes. You can only think of your NEW BOO. Been There Done That.
  3. Oxytocin, a hormone responsible for womb contractions in labor and milk production, is also released from the brain. This hormone makes you be more intimate. All of a sudden you want to cuddle & kiss; now you know why! See #GYNEGirls you need this hormone even if you are not #Preggo.
  4. Being in LOVE is like taking morphine; it can reduce pain. Interesting right?
  5. Lower levels of serotonin, another hormone, makes you blinded to your boo thang’s undesirable traits. That’s why ya’ll never listen to feedback especially if it’s negative from your momma, bestie, OR Dr. Drai. LOL!
  6. There are pheromones, chemicals released in the air, that are put off by the new #GENT you LOVE. Maybe that’s why we wear our man’s football jerseys, boxers, and T-shirts. Go figure?
  7. Norepinephrine, a chemical released during stress, makes you feel flustered. Your heart rate increases AND your palms sweat when you see your BAE.

As you just read my #GYNEGirls, Love will make the hormones and chemicals in your body go wild. BUT don’t let LOVE FOOL you- always protect yourself. #SafeSex is the only sex to have. You know Dr. Drai the sexpert had to put that in somewhere. Until next time…[#GYNEGirls]

Dr. Drai

Dr. Draion M. Burch, DO (Dr. Drai) – a highly respected, board-certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist – is a nationally-recognized author, speaker, consultant, and go-to media expert on women’s health and transgender health issues. He travels the country to meet with women one-on-one and in groups to provide and instruct on healthcare. Although Dr. Drai may be requested to spread his medical expertise to all four corners of the U.S., he always makes time to genuinely help those in need. As a pragmatic physician who offers endless charisma, high energy, and a larger-than-life personality, his “bedside manner” makes it obvious why his patients have named Dr. Drai “America’s OBGYN.” Dr. Drai is the founder and chief medical advisor of DrDrai.com, where he discusses actionable ideas and real-world strategies to help women take control of their health. As an openly gay gynecologist he has patients flocking to him and his website for not only his medical expertise, but because of the security they feel in the way he cares for, relates to, and teaches women about subjects ranging from embarrassing vaginal care to serious sexual assault. His mission: Real medical advice, simplified. Dr. Drai takes his unique brand to the camera on his YouTube channel to spill his popular “Medical T” (TIPS) helping his self-titled #Preggos, #GYNEGirls and #GENTs pursue a healthier life. Dr. Drai’s on-point advice on off-the-wall questions about sexual health issues has many calling him a “sexpert.” Dr. Drai earned his Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine degree from The Ohio University and completed his internship and residency at Michigan State University.
