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.

I had 4 puffs of ventolin within the space of 3 hours (slightly more) and it has been 3 hours since my last puff but my heart has been beating very fast since. Its doesn t feel like a heart rate, its not irregular, just very regularly rapid with constantly pounding at a regular rate but very forceful I can feel it in my chest just going crazy. I ve tried staying still, distracting myself, drinking water, but my heart is still very very rapid, heart rate of above 130bpm and if I move its even faster.

Im working out and running and i have asthma is it normal for my heart rate to be a lot faster then everybody else even when not having a attack? i only run for about a minute im doing burst training. my heart rates about 180 when running fast for 1 minute. About 135 or 140 when lifting weights. IS it safe to do so?

im 29 years old and for months now ive been having palpatations, at first they werent bothering me but now they are starting to really bang, i also noticed that when this happens the beat at e apex of the heart stops for a few seconds. I exercise 5 times a week 2 hour sessions. i wear a heart monitor when training and never push more than 85% of my max heart rate. sometimes when having these palpatations they come one after another and can be painful sometimes. my pulse is okay between 60-90 taken at the wrist how ever when i put the heart monitor on it always seems to go between 80-111 without exercise. been to the doctor and he said it was okay recent bloods were okay. Have you any ideas?? i dont drink caffine.
