Understand Sexual Activity & Cardiovascular Disease
Sex is a very common concern among people with heart disease - one-half to three-quarters of people experience sexual problems after a heart event. Heart disease and the medications you take for your heart can affect your desire for sexual activity and your performance. Or perhaps the fear of straining your heart (or your partner’s heart), or even depression, may be getting in the way of intimacy. But there are ways you can improve your sex life even after a heart event.
