It’s usually the man who has a heart attack during sex, because he’s doing most of the "work." But in one recent case, it was the WOMAN who had a stroke..
Minutes after having sexual intercourse with her boyfriend, a 35-year-old woman suddenly felt her left arm go weak. Her speech became slurred and she lost feeling on the left side of her face. She was having a stroke.
Doctors later concluded the stroke probably was due to several related factors, including birth control pills, a venous blood clot, sexual intercourse and a heart defect. Thankfully, she got to the hospital fast enough that there was no long-term damage.
There are no statistics on the number of patients who have experienced strokes during sexual intercourse.
