I am working in Saudi Arabia as an engineer. I am living with my second newly implanted pacemaker.My marriage proposals are going on. I wish to know weather my pacemaker will be a hindrance to my married life?. Do the Pacemaker will cause any problem during sexual intercourse?. I am really in utter dilemma.can any one give an answer to this problem.....?
Ask your doctor. I do not have any personal knowledge, but say if you are exercise tolerant, that is you can walk up stairs and do physical work then you can take the physical demands of "normal" sexual intercourse, I believe. If on the other hand, you become breathless when just walking, I'd guess the answer is mostly no...depending on your partner's demands and expectations.
I believe most pacemakers are implanted to guard against a too slow heart rate, or heart stop. Exercise depends on heart rates way above the level at which the pacemaker cuts-in.
Wishing you the best, and discuss with your doctor.
