If a person who has survived a heart attack is healthy enough to walk up two flights of stairs without chest pain or gasping for breath, then they are healthy enough to have a love life. A recent study published in the heart association journal Circulation states that sex is safe for most heart patients.
Among heart attack survivors, average risks for another heart attack or
sudden death are about 10 in 1 million per hour; having sex increases
that to about 20 to 30 in 1 million per hour of sexual activity, the new
report says. People without heart disease face lower overall risks for a
heart attack, but similar risks for a sex-related attack. The study authors write:
"The risk of having a heart attack during sexual activity is two to
three times higher than when not having sexual activity. However, this
increased risk of heart attack during sexual activity represents only a
very small part of a person's overall risk of having a heart attack, and
sexual activity is the cause of less than 1 percent of all heart
The report also encourages doctors to bring up the issue with all their heart patients for most are reluctant due to the sensitive nature of the topic or lack of information.
