Breath-taking sex turned out to be almost too literal for a 45-year-old woman nearly died after suffering a from a stroke due to the impact of oral sex her partner gave her. She suffered from bleeding on the brain that could have killed her just when the 44-year-old was about to have an orgasm. Soon after the attack, she passed out, however, regained consciousness after around three minutes later. She was rushed to a hospital in west London for a check-up and scans showed she had burst a blood vessel, but she made a full recovery, as per reports by metro.co.uk. Absentminded People Could Be at Risk of Silent Stroke.

While you cannot directly blame the orgasm for the stroke, there sure seems to be a connection between the two. Experts believe that the changes in blood pressure during sex are ‘well described’ as a cause of bursting blood vessels, as per reports by the esteemed portal. It was also reported that she was absolutely fine when she arrived at the hospital.

Sex and Stroke
