For most sexually active people, sex is not just to have pleasure but to ultimately reach a climax that will bring a sense of fulfillment to parties involved in the act.
However, a medical expert says intense orgasms can be detrimental to one’s health.
Dr Charles Mensah Cofie, who is Ophthalmologist says it can affect the eye.
He made this comment while answering a question on the topic on GTV’s Breakfast Show.
Dr Cofie further cited instances where some have had strokes after climaxing.
“When you have an orgasm, your BP goes up actually. So if you already have BP and your BP is not controlled and then you have an orgasm, then it goes higher.
“And that one can lead to bleeding in the eyes and even stroke,” Dr Mensah Cofie said.
He, therefore, urged adults to be cautious when engaging in sexual activities.
“Yes, the enjoyment is in the orgasm but you have to be careful, you have to be easy,” he said.
