If you suffer from asthma it could be hindering your libido and negatively affecting your sex life – but it doesn’t have to! Asthma is a condition categorized by chronic inflammation of the airways which can lead to shortness of breath, chest pains, coughing and wheezing. Asthma flare-ups and attacks can range in severity but as long as the condition is under control with inhaler medication a person can live a normal life.
People who suffer with asthma must be mindful of their triggers which can result from environmental factors like pollution and dust to even over-exerting themselves through exercise. Sex, too, can be a form of over-exertion and can result in asthma symptoms becoming worse which can really but a damper on your bedroom activities.
In a survey of 353 people with asthma, two-thirds reported that asthma has hindered their sex life. Forty-seven percent of respondents reported that asthma has negatively impacted their ability to have sex while 19 percent reported simply avoiding sex due to their condition. Lead researcher of the study, which was presented at the 96th International Conference of the American Thoracic Society, Ilan H. Meyer said, “Sexual limitation remains an area of asthma-related quality-of-life that is often neglected. It’s a well-kept secret. The good news is, there’s something you can do about it.”
