To what extent does sex increase blood pressure?

I have an intra-renal aneurism on my aorta (3.5 cm, they said) ...  My blood pressure is well-controlled with Amlodipine and Lisinopril but I'm wondering to what extent sex increases blood pressure.  I'm thinkin' any increase in blood pressure could hasten a rupture of the aneurism.  Should I give up sex?

Oh my goodness. What is the plan for the aneurism? I would NOT have sex until you are cleared by your doctor.  That would make me too nervous.  It is probably safe . . . but I wouldn't do it.  I wouldn't lift weights or do anything notorious for BP spikes.

Do they have a plan to treat the aneurism?
