A NEW medic’s case report has revealed that a woman almost died from an orgasm.
According to Daily Mail, the unidentified woman felt a pop in her chest while she was having sex.
What started as a kinky, intimate session ended with a life-threatening injury to the 45-year-old woman’s main artery.
It is reported that the woman, from the USA, was having sex with her husband with her legs pressed against her chest.
“She felt the strange popping sensation when she climaxed, which was accompanied by a sudden, stabbing pain near her heart,” the article read.
The woman was admitted to a local hospital in Mississippi, where tests revealed that her blood pressure was 220/140mmHg.
According to the American Journal of Case Reports, doctors discovered a leak in her aorta – the largest artery carrying blood through the body.
The publication also reported that the woman was discharged from hospital after three days as her blood pressure lowered thereafter.
She escaped going through a surgery, which is usually reserved for patients who experience leaks closer to the heart.
