In brief: No

Not in your blood, anyway.
Sometimes they make you happy. Sometimes sex gets you into trouble. Increased serotonin and catecholamines in some of the synapses of your brain can correlate with your mood. If you're trying to manage feeling blue, talk with your physician -- good convo and/or medication may boost your mood and even make you a better lover / partner.
