Sex Will Not Cause A Heart Attack: Study

Team HTV Mar 23 2016

Heart attack patients often worry about whether sexual activity can trigger another heart event, but a research letter published reveals they have little to worry about.

Researchers studied 536 heart disease patients between the ages of 30 and 70, evaluating their sexual activity in the 12 months leading up to a heart attack, which allowed them to estimate the relationship between frequency of sexual activity and future fatal heart attacks, strokes or cardiovascular death.

They concluded that sexual activity — which they likened to moderate physical activity such as a brisk walk or climbing two staircases — was not a risk factor for subsequent adverse cardiovascular events.
