Sudden drop in HR while masturbating *Not a joke*

Well, this is not a joke I am very serious. I am 25 and have no prior health conditions or positive medical history. Sometimes when I masturbate I can feel my HR drop to a crazy low level. I am normally at 60bpm at rest and I can defiantly feel my HR drop to about 35bpm for maybe 3-6sec. I can feel my heart contracting. I would almost say I can feel the atria then the ventricles contract one a t a time... it is very strange and kind of scary since I'm only trying to relieve myself.... I was thinking of telling a doctor but figured I'd get someone else's take first... any one got a clue?

Indeed it is.

Are you on any medication? Or coming off of medication? I was on a benzodiazepine for sleep and it really messed up my heart rhythms (HR jumping to 150 in a second, tachycardia, bradycardia, and low HR). I was put on propranolol, but that lowered my HR to around 40 so I was taken off. I’m off of the benzo for sleep now and staying off!! Medications are just not tested as they should be. The $$$ is more important. If they can skew the negative data they do. Therefore, doctors don’t even know how to help often when it comes to an issue being caused by medication because the literature doesn’t acknowledge it, so it must not an issue. Anyway, my point is if you’ve been on medication of any kind, consider whether it could be a side affect.

Hi Jocha,
I'm having the same thing.
Also, bradycardia and force heart beats after masturbating but before orgasm (suppose taking a rest before orgasm)
I'm 22 y/o male, and I started feeling this after I resolved anxiety (or cardio-phobia), or a chronic stress that lasted around 7 months.
I'm a smoker, instead of having higher BPM I feel it's on the low-end (all the time). And the same for BP, sometimes I get 105/45 or 115/5 or 110/60...
I think everything including orgasm-inducing bradycardia or whatever it is, is caused by something in ANS (Autonomic nervous system), or by low cortisol levels maybe? (Hormones unbalance) etc..

I'd like to know if you diagnosed the problem, or at least the cause of what's happening.

Interesting.

I am a 25 year old male.

My resting HR is approximately 60 BPM. At moments or peaks of sexual excitement I sometimes experience the same thing.

My heart rate suddenly drops to 40-50 BPM with powerful pounding beats. No symptoms other that palpitation.

The power of the beats feel like the power of beats when you have an adrenaline rush but with a decrease and not an increase in heart rate.

Anyone care to shine light as it would be interesting to see the possibilities.

Cheers.

Well, others have reported increases heart rate, sometimes triggering tachycardia,  a-fib or other arryhthmias. Never heard of orgasm inducing bradycardia though. Probably not anything to worry about but don't take my word for it:)
