You probably already know high blood pressure increases risk for heart attack, but did you also know it can be a cause of SEXUAL PROBLEMS?
Hypertension can lead to ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION, Lower libidos and less interest in sex for both men and women. But it doesn’t have to.
Remember that hypertension is something that affect every organ in your body. It affects the flow of blood, which is something our entire body needs—from our brains to our hands to our gallbladders. Therefore the effects of hypertension can be seen all throughout our bodies.
Over time, high blood pressure can damage the lining of blood vessels and can cause the hardening and narrowing of the arteries, also known as atherosclerosis. At SEXY time, hypertension can restrict adequate Blood flow to the pelvic region and affect the sex lives of both men and women.
👉An erection happens bcos the penis becomes engorged with blood and so an effective blood flow is needed to get hard.
With high blood pressure, getting and maintaining an effective blood flow that is sufficient for an erection isn’t guaranteed, in fact it becomes difficult.
👉Women don’t have to keep up erections, but high blood pressure still can affect the female sex experience. women do have erectile tissue, particularly in the breast and pubic areas—these are still tissues that need extra blood flow! Without this blood flow, women are less sensitive in these regions, which end up in a less enjoyable experience and more “numb” experience during sex.
Additionally, ineffective blood flow means that hormones aren’t being distributed effectively throughout the body. Both women and men can have overall lower libidos and less interest in sex.
👉In other words, high blood pressure can be a disaster in bed.👈
