It’s important to remember that, alongside clinical management of PAH, having healthy, supportive relationships and maintaining a level of intimacy (which will be completely dependent on your needs and wants), all contribute to overall health and wellbeing. This is important as high numbers of people living with PAH experience anxiety and depression.1
Family planning is also an important consideration for people living with PAH and particularly for women, as childbirth puts the mother and baby at high risk.2 It’s therefore strongly recommended that women do not fall pregnant if living with PAH.2 This is something that can have a huge impact on someone living with PAH and therefore should be discussed with your partner and healthcare team.
