Sex occupies a very important part in our lives regarding our health, so people with chronic illness among which can include heart disease, diabetes or current asthma, may have pain or fatigue, which can hinder a healthy sex life, researchers say.

The American Academy of Family Physicians offers tips on how to enjoy sex, despite having a chronic illness and these suggestions are:

It is very important to consider at what time of day people affected by these chronic diseases are more healthy or who have more energy, to try to have sex this time around, which would represent the most appropriate according to their health condition.

Try to get plenty of rest and in turn tend to feel as relaxed as possible, to enjoy without reaching the limits or excesses that would be harmful in these cases.

Avoid having sex within two hours after meals or in the states of fullness, which is detrimental to the health of any person in general.

If they are treated with medication taken for pain, try to take at least 30 minutes before sex.

Minimize consumption of alcoholic and non-smoking and snuff, as both can affect sexual performance.
