Heart disease patients can safely resume sexual activity after a heart attack, according to new findings.Heart attack patients often worry about whether sexual activity can trigger another heart event, but a research letter published on Monday reveals they have little to worry about. Researchers studied 536 heart disease patients between the ages of 30 and 70, evaluating their sexual activity in the 12 months leading up to a heart attack, which allowed them to estimate the relationship between frequency of sexual activity and future fatal heart attacks, strokes or cardiovascular death.
