Post-coital tristesse PCT is the feeling of sadness , anxiety , agitation or aggression after sexual intercourse. Its name comes from New Latin postcoitalis and French tristesse , literally "sadness". Many people with PCT may exhibit strong feelings of anxiety lasting from five minutes to two hours after coitus.
