Question On Sexual Health: Do Not Look If You Are Under 18


W_L

766 views

GA authors write a lot about LGBT community and we do write about sex, in different degrees, but we have no area in the forum for sex questions or advice due to the possibility of younger kids getting into it and violating site rules.

 

This is probably an innocent health question as it relates to me and my current sexual partner, but I do feel like I have to be discreet about it and will not post it to the general forum, and I will use spoiler tags to add a level of discretion.

 

Here goes my question:


If your sexual partner is exhausted and is in a state of near fainting after you and he had intercourse, is that a bad sign? (Standard oral and licking of areas)

 

I sometimes feel light headed too, but I believe that's part of my high blood pressure issue. He is about 10 years older than me and in better health, so I want to make sure this is not something I should be more wary of.

Sounds like a good question for his doctor.  Couldn't hurt to make sure everything's ok. :)

Yeah, WL think you both need to take a trip to the doc and make sure you're both okay.

This one has me blushing, but hubby's heart doctor says if he can walk up a flight of stairs without  getting out of breathe or dizzy he's ok to have sex.

Well, I live on the 2nd floor of a two family home, so yes, we can both climb a flight of stairs without losing breath.

There is a reason they call an orgasm the 'little death.' Some people are just wiped out after an orgasm. I'm thinking you have a better understanding of what that saying means than you used to. And maybe a greater appreciation for your skills, W_L.

There are some chances in pulse and BP related to sexual activity. However, I suspect the data collected in this study is not indicative of hypertension or tachycardia. Any pulse over 110 or BP with a systolic over 150 or diastolic over 100 for any reason is definitely cause for concern. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18635976

Oh, good to know. Some of us are not ok to have sex :-(

I would be more worried if you and your partner were unaffected by the sexual activity. Light-headedness can easily be caused by the diversion of blood flow south.  Sex is at best a strenuous activity, and it makes sense to be a bit wiped after. If you aren't, someone is doing something wrong!

But you should consult with your doctors. Any shortness or breath, light headed, dizziness, and the like can be the result of an underlying problem. Especially if it happens consistently. You may just be noticing it after sex, because you're on a heightened level of awareness. But it could be happening on lesser values doing other things that you're just not feeling.

 

It also could be something you're not realizing you're doing. Like you may be tensing up or not breathing deeply/evenly... there are some people that don't relax or breathe correctly while running or exercising and that causes dizziness, trembling/muscle weakness, fainting, and such. Just being aware of those and teaching yourself to relax and breathe could help a lot. :)

 

But yes, consistent problems like these - should - involve some discussions with your doctor.

When in doubt ask a medical professional. Does your insurance provider have a number that you can call to talk with a nurse? Many do. That would allow you to ask without the need to meet face to face if that would make it easier.

There is also the potential that it could be the side effect of a medication. One that I take causes me to become dizzy, lightheaded after strenous activity. I need to be careful working in the yard so I would imagine sex might be an issue too.
