Do you get the 'post-sex blues'?

WOMEN are being asked to tell researchers about their "post-sex blues" as part of a study being run by the Queensland University Technology.

The study will add to research recently published in the International Journal of Sexual Health which found one in three women experienced "post-coital dysphoria".

That study also found nearly 10% of the 200 women surveyed reported experiencing symptoms such as distress some of the time after consensual sex.

QUT associate professor Robert Schweitzer said the study would try to better understand the experience some women face.
