AFTER A HEART ATTACK: TOO RISKY TO BE FRISKY?

AFTER A HEART ATTACK: TOO RISKY TO BE FRISKY?

WARNING:  SEX CAUSES a RISE in HEART RATE, SWEATING, and HEAVY BREATHING...

 

AAAND - SO DOES a HEART ATTACK!
 
And, therein lies the PROBLEM - CORONARIES tend to have a "DEFLATING" effect on the LIBIDO.
SEX CURES ALL?
  
But now EXPERTS AGREE - It's OK to get "EXCITED" about SEX AFTER A HEART    ATTACK!

Many POST-CORONARY PATIENTS decide to simply NOT INDULGE in SEX, rather than RISK putting their HEARTS on the line again.

The FLAT LINE that is!

But EXPERTS tell us that these measures are EXTREME - and only result in DEPRESSION and a LOWERED QUALITY OF LIFE.

The HEART of the MATTER is this: In the overwhelming majority of cases - NOOKY is HEART HEALTHY!  
And FUN too!

S-E-X should be seen simply as a more-pleasant-than-usual LIGHT WORKOUT - and  cardiologists agree that if you can perform the latter - YOU CAN PERFORM!

IT JUST TAKES A LITTLE HEART
It just takes a little TIME. A little PATIENCE. A little COURAGE.

 And a LITTLE HEART!

It is ONLY HUMAN to FEAR over-exertion after a HEART ATTACK OR SURGERY. It is a TERRIFYING, LIFE-ALTERING EVENT that turns ones life UPSIDE-DOWN, INSIDE-OUT - and often brings one FACE-TO-HEART with their own MORTALITY.

Its important to remember that the EXPERTS EQUATE the EXERTION INVOLVED with having SEX - as EQUAL to that of WALKING UP a COUPLE FLIGHTS OF STAIRS!

It's on the YES list!

"The chance of another heart attack during sex is so low that it's not worth worrying about" writes Dr. J. E. Muller - author of the study; "Triggering of Cardiac Events by Sexual Activity," published in the American Journal of Cardiology in 2000. "It's just not as big a deal as most think." 

HERE ARE A FEW THINGS TO TAKE TO HEART..                  

  • Assuming no serious COMPLICATIONS - most can safely resume SEXUAL ACTIVITY just a COUPLE of  WEEKS after a HEART ATTACK
  • SURGERY will EXTEND the time-frame, but for only a few more weeks. Your DOCTOR will let you know!
LIFE IS TO BE LOVED!
  • PROCEED GRADUALLY but with NO FEAR!
  • WAIT a few hours AFTER EATING so the heart is not otherwise engaged in aiding and abetting the DIGESTIVE PROCESS. 
  • BETA BLOCKERS can cause SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION and DEPRESSION in BOTH sexes.
  •  ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION DRUGS do not mix well with NITROGLYCERIN. 
  • STOP! If there is CHEST PAIN or SHORTNESS of BREATH - NOT HEAVY BREATHING!
LIFE IS TO BE LOVED!
 
DON'T LET FEAR GET IN YOUR WAY OF GETTING SOME..

JUST SAY YES TO SEX!

WANT MORE? I'MKAR'N IS FULL OF IT....
