Woman nearly dies after hearing a terrifying ‘pop’ in her chest during orgasm 0 45

SEX can be exciting and sometimes getting to the ‘big O’ requires hard work.

But one woman nearly died after she felt a ‘pop’ in her chest as she climaxed.

American Journal of Case ReportsThe image above shows the woman’s chest and points to the place where the woman felt the pop, medically this is known as the intramural hematoma[/caption]

This sensation was accompanied by a stabbing pain in the heart – which turned out to be a life-threatening injury to her main artery.

The unnamed 45-year-old woman was found to have aortic intramural haematoma.

It’s a relatively uncommon condition and usually occurs in men in their 60s and 70s.

The symptoms are similar to those of heart disease – which can lead to a delay in diagnosis.

The 8 most common sex injuries – and how to treat them

People at risk of acute aortic syndrome (ASS), the condition which is usually underlying with the haematoma, are usually those with high blood pressure which helps weaken the aorta over time.

Weight-lifting at a high-intensity range is also known to be a common factor as it puts extra pressure on the blood vessels.

Writing in the American Journal of Case Reports, doctors detailed how the Mississippi woman presented at the hospital – with her blood pressure measuring 220/140mmHg.

Medics found a leak in her aorta and said the ‘stress’ of sex had caused it.

The patient was kept in hospital for three days where she was given medication for chronic hypertension.

Specialist staff were consulted and medical management was deemed to be the best cause of action for the woman.

She was discharged from hospital and scheduled an out-patient follow-up.

Medics stated that the woman had a history of tobacco abuse and smoked six to seven cigarettes each day.

They added: “There were no concerning findings on the physical examination.

“The patient appeared to be in moderate distress and experienced an improvement in pain with 8 mg of morphine and 100 mcg of fentanyl.”

When it comes to the risk during sex, they said that it has previously been described as ‘moderate physical activity’.

They explained: “The physiologic response to sexually activity correlates with the physical response and the emotional response.

“The risk of sudden cardiac death during sex has a correlation with adultery, which could be provoking an intensified or unforeseen emotional response that makes a person more predisposed to AAS or sudden cardiac death.

“The physiological parameters of respiratory rate, heart rate, and blood pressure all increase with sexual intercourse, in correlation with exercise.”

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 40

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

I’m a mess and need to start getting a grip for the kids’ sake.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
