According to a new medical research, a husband suffered from memory loss as a result of afternoon sex with his wife.
According to Mail Online, the 66-year-old man had Transient Global Amnesia (TGA) within 10 minutes of sexual intercourse, according to a paper published in the Irish Medical Journal in May.
The instance demonstrated that sex may promote TGA, according to doctors at University Hospital Limerick’s Department of Neurology.
The paper, titled ‘Recurrent Postcoital Transient Amnesia Associated with Diffusion Restriction,’ detailed his visit to A&E and a previous event involving the same individual seven years before.
‘On the afternoon of the presentation, he had engaged in sexual intercourse 10 minutes before the commencement of memory difficulty,’ according to the report.
‘When he saw the date on his phone, he was upset since he hadn’t remembered his wedding anniversary the day before.’
‘He had, in fact, celebrated his wedding anniversary the day before with his wife and family.
‘His autobiographical memory was intact, but he had no recollection of that morning or the previous night’s celebrations.’
‘The guy repeatedly questioned his wife and daughter about the events of that morning and the previous day,’ the article added.
‘No further neurological complaints were observed, and his neurological assessment was absolutely normal when he arrived at the emergency department.’
The origin of TGA is unknown, however there is a correlation between rapid memory loss and a migraine history. Overfilling of the veins as a result of a blood clot or any abnormalities in blood flow might possibly be the cause.
TGA has been linked to abrupt immersion in cold or hot water, vigorous activity, and intercourse in a few cases.
People are more likely to get TGA.
