Sex is not something to be taken lightly. A lot of people are not aware that sex can be dangerous for high blood pressure patients. Although there are no reported cases of sex-related high BP, research has shown that sex increases the risk of hypertension by about thirteen percent. This means that sex is unsafe for people with high blood pressure. According to a study, sex is directly related to the increase in LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) which is a precursor of hypertension. Therefore, sex should be avoided by people with high blood pressure.
Some doctors say that sex is fine provided that it is done in a proper way and that one does not use drugs. However, one should always be vigilant while having sex as using drugs is not okay either. Most of the high blood pressure patients I know always monitor their BP regularly and they do not use any drugs.
In fact, a large number of people with high blood pressure are married. I believe that it is better if you marry someone who is not married to you or do not have sex while you are together. Also, if you are doing well, then you should try to do things to prevent boredom and stress. Sexual category is good when you are bored, or stressed, but if you have to have sex then you should make sure that you are doing it with someone who does not have high blood pressure.
