  • Female Smokers may be Prone to Stroke Attacks during Sexual Intercourse

It has been found that female smokers may be more prone to stroke attacks during otherwise harmless activities such as sexual intercourse.

Women who smoke heavily may be more likely to kick the bucket due to a stroke. This stroke may in turn be caused by such tasks of exertion as sex with their partners. A female’s smoking profile is a very accurate way of determining her risks of contracting a subarachnoid heamorrhage.

This is basically a bleeding in the brain that causes one in every 20 strokes that take place in the UK. While there are hardly any symptoms to warn beforehand regarding this impending fatal stroke, physical exertion is the most common causative factor. 

Such simple things as a hacking cough, a bowel movement while in the washroom, lifting a heavy weight or wild sex may trigger this deadly stroke. The main reason is a brain aneurysm.

The blood vessels develop structural weaknesses and become prone to bursting at some point. Over 6000 people are hospitalized each year for this condition. Women comprise the majority of patients in this regard.  

While smoking has been implicated among the list of causative factors, smoking women are at an even greater risk than non-smoking women. Even those females who just have one odd cigarette per day have a slightly raised chance of getting the stroke anytime in their lives.

Thus care is of the essence here. Kicking the addictive habit would be ideal. Men who smoked were also prone to being struck by strokes , yet their chances were far below female smokers.

Meanwhile, those women who consumed a pack or more per day were at the highest risk for this disease, according to Mirror. They had to be very careful lest they exerted beyond their capacity since the stroke just needed an alibi to strike. It was an insidious biological enemy waiting to pounce and kill the female smoker in her prime.  

The scientists have announced that there is a silver lining to the cloud. Those who gave up their smoking habit tended to be less prone to the stroke attacks.

They automatically entered the safe zone. Even those who had quit smoking a mere six months earlier almost exhibited the same chances of contracting the stroke as non-smokers.

This is indeed good news and ought to be an impetus for smokers (both male and female) to throw that last coffin nail or cancer stick in the ashtray and walk away a free person into the fresh open air of the Great Outdoors.

The study was published online in the journal Stroke.
