Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome
This is Dr Sameer, cardiologist.
The question you asked is a very common question, asked by many of our patients.
Honesty speaking, it is not possible for anyone to have sex & low heart rate during it. During sex, our body releases some hormones for satisfaction, which increase our heart rate so that more blood & therefore more oxygen us available, as sex is a energy consuming process.
So, it is not possible to do sex & have low heart rate during it.
You can still try Yoga, which has helped many peoples in controlling their body. You can also do sex but less intensely, which will still raise your heart rate, but slightly less.
I hope i answered your query.
Thanks
Take care

I have an irregular heartbeat. Have had a defibrillator put in and it is set at 250 high end. My doctors all say I am good to have sex. How do I deal with the fear it may go off?

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Heart rate during sex generally does not go to as high as 250. We advice our patients that they can have sex, but do not become over engaged in it. Do it easily & slowly. Don't do it fast & with lot of energy.
Following these things will keep your heart in control.
I hope it was helpful to you.
If you have any more questions, I'll be happy to help.
Wishing you a healthy life.
Thanks
Take care

Detailed Answer:
Hi Welcome,
You can lie down with your partner on top of you doing all the work. It will increase heart rate least.
Or if you are above her, pump slowly, don't do fast.
But her on top is better.

Hello. My normal heart rate is about 100 - 120 bpm. I had palpitations occasionally but I never went to see the doctor as I thought it was normal although they usually lasted from 5 to 10 minutes. Last year when I was 24 weeks pregnant, I had a heart palpitation (while I was resting) and my heart rate went up to 240 bpm. It was only after I got injected with adenosine (35mins later) did my heart rate went down to 120bpm. The doctors diagnosed me with an SVT. Due to that, I requested to deliver my baby through C-section. This year, I'm pregnant again and I still go for my scheduled appointments every few months with the cardiologist. Only now he does not think it sounds like I have SVT. This year I will deliver my baby normally but I'm still quite worried about my heart. My question is, if I don't have SVT, what kind of heart condition do I have? I still have palpitations sometimes, my heart rate is never below 100bpm, I always feel fatigued and chest pain and short of breath. Thank you.

My daughter has been fighting a cold. I thought she was over it then she woke up with a headache (which is unusual for her) on Saturday. She eventually took a nap and felt better when she woke up. She felt great all day on Halloween. She woke up yesterday with a fever which increased during the morning. It reached 103.1 but then decreased. I did not give her fever reducers. By the time we got to the doctor at 12:45, she was fine. She was only running 100 degrees and being her usual silly self. The doctor said to bring her back if she still had a fever in a few days and to send her to school today. The school sent her home with 102 degrees. She was hot, but seemed fine until about 20 minutes ago. Now she sounds very uncomfortable. She is saying that her heart hurts when she breathes. I can not hear anything in her lungs with my stethoscope, but I noticed that her heart rate is elevated - it seems to be about 140 BPM. She is 6 years old.
