Could there be a connection between sex and heartburn?

Asked by sliceswiththings (11651 points ) January 31st, 2010

So last weekend my boy was over, and I experienced heartburn, which I rarely do. I blamed the diet coke, which I never have.

This weekend the same thing happened and I didn’t consume anything strange. Could there be a connection between either sex or simply being horizontal in bed all day and heartburn?

Maybe you ate something before having sex? That might cause it from indigestion.

Also, hormones change alot of what’s going on in your body. Looseing up in one area can cause loosening elsewhere (below the belt & above the belt, in this case;-)

Do you have heartburn after sleeping all night (without sex) ?

Maybe an indirect connection.

About thirty years ago I met a young woman and started having sex with her. This continued to the point where she came with me when my job in that area was finished and I transferred out of town. We continued to live together, and soon I asked her to marry me.

After more than twenty years of heartburn we parted. My attacks these days are much less frequent and severe.

Depends on the position, maybe?

it all depends on exactly who you had sex with !!

Only if you have sex with a Latin guy! Spicy! :P

I would think spicy or acidic food several hours before any vigorous exercise would give you heartburn if you like to do upside down positions.

When I was married, I had sex and heartburn. When I got divorced, I had sex, but the heartburn went away. No connection as far as I can tell.
