(England) -- One British woman is back to normal life after suffering a stroke when nearing an orgasm last year. The 44-year-old from west London was brought to a university hospital where doctors discovered a blood vessel had burst inside her brain.
The woman was reportedly unconscious for a few minutes following a headache during oral sex with her partner, who said they noticed her body was extremely stiff.
She spent two weeks under care following the small hemorrhage in her brain. Medical professionals say sexual activity can lead to blood vessel bursts in some cases due to blood pressure and heart rate changes that the act can create.
