Sex and Heart Disease
Men with heart disease face exceptional challenges to their sexuality. Distressing pain and other symptoms make it difficult to feel comfortable, much less sexually aroused. Many men with heart disease are afraid to have sex because they and their partner fear that the increased physical exertion could cause chest pain or even another heart attack. But most men with heart problems can have sex without causing any physical problems. Talking to your doctor about such a delicate subject can be uncomfortable, but you need to find out what your limits are. Even if your heart condition is so serious it restricts your ability to have intercourse, you still can be affectionate and intimate with your partner in other ways. For example, you could bring your partner to orgasm using your hand or mouth. Remember that heart disease should never prevent you from having a loving and caring relationship with your partner.
