Sex Affecting Sports Performance
Probably not: Sexual tensions if relieved prior to sproting activities could be beneficial. If one has prolonged sex and tires themself, this could reduce sports performance.

Hi I am having shoulder pains which are really affecting my sport perfomance I can bowl a ball in cricket but cannot throw what can I do?
Use a trainer: Weightlifting like many sports activities can be beneficial if done right & can produce significant injury if done wrong. Any pre-teen/teen should be supervised by a professional, preferably one certified in the area. Early training focuses on technique & low intensity weights. Power lifting & body building are not recommended until the kid reaches skeletal maturity (final height, b.O., shaves). ...Read more
Absolutely: Sure - anemai is when you don't have enough red cells, which carry oxygen to your body. If you don't have enough oxygen carrying capacity, you can't get as much oxygen to tissues that need this during exercise. If can make you tired, and certainly affect performance.

Is sex in the morning of a sports competition detrimental to athletic outcome? How long do physiological affects last?
No: That's an old practice based on the assumption that you lose your hunger to win after engaging in sex.

Good luck, and train hard! ...Read more
I didn't bleed the first time l had sex but felt pain. I was never really active in any sports. I'm stressed l need all possible causes?
Penis caused pain.: The bleeding with first sex idea is overdone. Bleeding means there were little tears. If a woman has a healthy vulva, vagina, and hymen; if she is very stretchy; if she is happy and relaxed, with lots of natural lubrication; if a guy enters at a good angle, at the right spot; if he moves gently with small motions until all is well-lubricated and stretched out; there may not be tearing or bleeding. ...Read more

The first time I had sex, blood didn't go. I have done fingering many times. I am not a sports person. Can you tel me any possible reason for this?
Maybe: Are you asking why you didn't bleed after the first time you had sex? Not everyone does. Your hymen may have loosened from previous activity unrelated or related to sexual activity. If you were very aroused the lubrication produced by the vagina will also prevent friction on the tissue thus preventing bleeding. ...Read more

Not a virus: Most likely this is from tendon and or muscle strain probably from over use or as you say not training properly.

I never had sex, but I play sports& im not sure if I tore my hymen or not. So, if I go to the doctor, Can she tell that my hymen wasn't broken from sex?
No: It's hard for a doctor to tell that a hymen is "broken" in any case let alone how it was "broken". It's really just a relative tightening of the tissues in most cases. Even a pelvic examination itself can cause loosening. ...Read more
Competed in a bodybuilding (sports model) comp, have been on an extreme diet and exercise routine. Haven't had my period in 6 weeks-had unprotected sex?
