Can you continue having sex when you have paroxysmal atrial fibrillation?

Question: Can you continue to have sex when you have paroxysmal atrial fibrillation? Manuel (Asturias).

Answer: There is no type of contraindication "per se" to have sex. In some cases exercise can trigger seizures, and seizures can be symptomatic. If you have a crisis, it is best to suspend relationships and, if your doctor has prescribed a pill to control the episode, take it. The best thing is that you always consult your cardiologist because this disease has very different causes and treatments and the personal clinical context is very important.
