Extra marital affairs bad for the heart
Dr KK Aggarwal | 13 Feb 2012

About 75 per cent of deaths that do occur during sexual intercourse are in people having extra marital affairs and in men who are much older than their sexual partners said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy Awardee Dr. KK Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India.

About 75 per cent of deaths that do occur during sexual intercourse are in people having extra marital affairs and in men who are much older than their sexual partners said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy Awardee Dr. KK Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India.

 

Dr Aggarwal said that extramarital sex is more stressful than sex with a spouse.

 

1.  Often there's an unexpressed need to perform well with a new partner.

2.   Sometimes there's been a high food and alcohol intake, which adds to the overall stress. Sexual activity after food is more strenuous than on the fasting state.

3.  The anxiety to perform better during extramarital sex could precipitate angina, heart attack and sudden death.

4.   Extramarital sex also usually takes place in unfamiliar surroundings, which increases stress.

5.  Often the sex takes place under the cover of Viagra like drugs as most elderly patients having sex would take a tablet of Viagra if having sex with the younger newer partner. The combination of Viagra and nitrate (if they are a heart patient) could prove fatal for heart patients.

 

Danger signals of heart attack during the act are a feeling of pressure, pain or discomfort in the jaw, neck, arm, chest or stomach; marked shortness of breath; and excessively rapid or irregular heartbeats.

 

Researchers from St Thomas Hospital, London, have shown that couples in long-term relationship were far less likely to have heart attack while having sex compared to those having affairs or one-night stands.
