Possible Sex Disasters
Sex in and of itself is a great exercise for your health. It boosts your mood and your immune system. It lowers your blood pressure and can improve your sleep. But just like any activity, there are possible sex disasters that are afoot. For instance a 2010 survey taken in the UK found that one third of British adults had been injured during sex. Here are some possible sexual disasters that could happen to you. One thing any guy wants to avoid is a fractured penis. Even though there aren’t truly any bones within your member, you can tear the tunica albuginea membrane. This is the core of the penis which allows for erection. Usually, those who are doing very sexually adventurous moves endure this injury. Aggressive masturbation is another cause. It can occur any time the penis is forced against the perineum. This is the fleshy part between the testicles and the anus. Usually a cracking sound will occur when the penis breaks, followed by intense pain. If this occurs get medical attention immediately. A physical exam will determine whether or not it’s fractured. Surgery is often needed. Without treatment, deformity and erectile dysfunction may occur.
Have you ever experienced a headache due to sex? Both men and women can get them immediately following orgasm. Usually they aren’t something to worry about. However, they could be a symptom of high blood pressure, bleeding in the brain or a brain tumor. It’s usually a dull ache, or a sudden throbbing that builds slowly as intercourse becomes more intense. The first time you experience this headache, talk to your physician about it. If confusion, a stiff neck, coordination trouble or confusion follow, be sure to see your doctor right away.Vigorous sex triples your risk of heart attack in the hours just after intercourse, particularly for those who are not used to such rigorous activity according to a 2011 review published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. This is a rare occurrence but it can happen. Warning signs include chest pains that last for a couple of minutes or so. Sometimes these go away and then return. A shortness of breath may accompany the pain. Heart palpitations, meaning a racing or irregular heartbeat, is another sign. Other symptoms include lightheadedness, back or stomach pain, nausea and fatigue. Lastly, people with a minor heart defect, called a patent foramen ovale (PFO) have a higher risk of stroke during or after sex.
