Could These Be Better Than Prozac?

In a 2002 study done at SUNY Albany, 293 college women answered questionnaires about their sexual histories and took the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), a commonly used criterion for gauging depression symptoms. Women who always had sex with men without using condoms had significantly lower levels of symptoms of depression than those who never or infrequently had unprotected sex, as well as those who abstained from sex entirely. There was no noticeable difference in depression between condom users and people who didn’t have sex, indicating that intercourse itself wasn’t the mood-boosting factor.
