Sex & Heart Disease Presentation


The Helderberg Cardiac Support Group held a seminar at the Erinvale Golf Club on the 23rd of September 2017. Dr Heather Blaylock spoke on Cardiac Disease and Sexual Health.

Cardiac Disease is a leading cause of death worldwide. Cardiac DiseaseĀ and Erectile Dysfunction share risk factors and if patients with Erectile Dysfunction present early, Doctors can screen for Cardiac Disease, Diabetes Mellitus and other Life -Style diseases.

Also discussed was when to safely return to sexual activity post cardiac surgery or a Myocardial Infarction and safe sexual positions for patients and their partners.

Thanks Dr Paul Hill and Zelda Black.
