Health Effects Patients With Heart Valve Leaking With Intimate Relationships?
I’m a 30-year-old woman. And 1 yr ago was diagnosed with a leak in the heart valve. Currently the medical treatment that I do is taking heart medication every day. The doctor had previously recommended that I go for surgery, but I would still postpone it. My question is that in the near future I will get married, will later if I have a marital relationship can affect the condition of my heart?
