Has your wife talked to her pulmonary doctor about the shortness of breath after an orgasm? I have asthma, and find that if I climax too soon, I have terrible shortness of breath. But if the act is drawn out, over an hour or so, the shortness of breath doesn't happen. I used to get headaches with an orgasm also, but that doesn't happen if it takes longer before I reach that point. If she hasn't talked to her pulmonary doctor, I'd encourage her to do so. Good luck to you both.View Thread
