World Heart Day will be observed on September 29, 2019, just like every year. The day aims at creating awareness about the global burden of heart ailments and cardiovascular diseases that are accountable for nearly half of all non-communicable diseases (NCD) deaths making it the world's number one killer. The theme for World Heart Day 2019 is "Your Heart, My Heart". The day gives a perfect opportunity for CVD communities to work towards fighting against CVD and reduce the global disease burden. Heart ailments can often be silent and have no symptoms at all. However, your sexual life can tell a lot about your heart health. In fact, having more sex has been known to help men with heart ailments as well. According to a study, men who had sex at least twice a week were half as likely to die of heart disease as men who had sex. Here are a few other things your sex life can tell about your heart health.

Erectile Dysfunction And Heart Health

ED and heart health are linked in various ways. Studies have proven that men having erectile dysfunction are more prone to heart diseases than men who don't have ED.  A study, found out that about 57 percent of men who had bypass surgery and 64 percent of men hospitalised for heart attacks had ED at least at one point in their lives. ED or Erectile Dysfunction is a condition that causes a person to be unable to achieve or sustain an erection during sexual intercourse. Some studies have even said that having an ED can predict that the man will probably have some kind of heart disease symptoms within five years. ED is as important of a risk factor for heart disease than a history of smoking or coronary artery diseases. World Heart Day 2019 Date and Theme: Significance of the Day Dedicated to Spreading Awareness About Cardiovascular Diseases. 

Sexual Stamina

People who have cardiovascular diseases, often have lowered stamina on bed.  A history of heart attack or chest pain caused by heart disease may also affect your sex life by increasing the heart rate.

Libido

Studies have indicated that a loss of libido has something to do with your heart health. A lowered libido(sex drive) may indicate CVD problems.  Many people opt for viagra to improve libido but that only makes things worse.
