Did you know that sex can wipe off your memory temporarily? Well, it’s uncommon but true! An episode of sexual intercourse can actually lead to what we call transient amnesia. It is a phenomenon where chunks of memory, mostly associated with past 24 hours or so, is completely erased out. A patient suffering from sex related memory loss also has difficulty in retaining newer memories. However, the good news is that, this condition only affects around three to five people in every hundred thousand! Besides, the symptoms do not linger, in most cases.
The actual reason behind “transient global amnesia” is yet to be found. Similarly, predicting its onset is also impossible. This unpredictability is one aspect which might be difficult to deal with.
