Good news. Sex is safe for most heart patients!

A recent report released by the American Heart Association says if you’re healthy enough to walk up two flights of stairs without chest pain or gasping for breath, then you can have a love life. 

The report also says that sex is something that doctors should discuss with all heart patients yet few do because they’re uncomfortable talking about it of they lack information.
