Sexual Health and Atrial Fibrillation

Sexual activity is an important part of your quality of life and is often a great concern for both patients and their partners. Fears and concerns may temporarily interfere with sexual spontaneity and response. The good news is that atrial fibrillation is almost never a reason to stop having sex.

Talking about sex can be difficult, but remember: your doctor is used to talking about these things and welcomes the chance to help you get the information and advice that you need. If you don’t feel confident about having sex, please take a minute to talk about this with your doctor.
