Researchers at Ulm University in Germany led a small study and said the data they’ve collected shows it’s very unlikely “that sexual activity is a relevant trigger of heart attack.”
The study involved 536 heart disease patients between 30 and 70 years of age. They were asked about their sexual activity both before and after heart attacks, strokes and other kinds of cardiovascular events. 15 percent said they abstained from sex in the 12 months leading up to a heart attack, while 25 percent said they had sex about once a week.
The American Heart Association says that sex after a heart attack is OK. But remember guys: always keep doing it safely. Be OK and be safe, what could be better?
