If your partner has heart disease , it can make you nearly sick with worry regarding your sexual relationship. But you have to look for ways you can channel your concern into support.
Here are some tips that might help you:
- Talk honestly and openly to your partner: Choose time and place when you both are relaxed. Share your feelings rather than blaming.
- If he/she has lost interest in sex don’t take it personaly: Having heart disease or recovering from heart disease is a challenge and overwhelming experience for him.
- Initiate other forms of intimacy: Take the pressure off your partner by letting him/her know that you wont force for sex until he/ she wants.
- Encourage your partner to seek professional help to discuss concerns and questions relating to your sexual relationship.
That will help you both to begin the process of identifying some problems and finding out potential solutions.
