Sexual activity reduced in patients with CHD

01 Aug 2016Pais-up subscribers

Patients with coronary heart disease (CHD), particularly men, are less likely to be sexually active than those without CHD, a large English national study has shown. The effect of atherosclerotic changes on erectile function and the psychological impact of a coronary event on both sexes can have a profound effect on sexual activity. Quite often there is fear that another event could be provoked and this can adversely affect the desire to engage in sexual activity.
