Customer Question

I'm a guy, early twenties, and have noticed that I get heart palptations every now and then, usually at times of low oxygen such as playing sports or even sometimes when im stressed out. I went to the doctor about it and they put me on a heart monitor
for a day and they saw nothing wrong so I let it be. However Im still very curious and slightly still concerned, do I have a weak heart, will this be a real issue when im 50 or something? Also the time I notice it the most is actually when I masturbate and
specifically when I ejaculate. I didnt tell my doctor that as its quite embarrasing to discuss with my mom in the same room. However during regular sex it doesnt happen, why is this and should this be a problem?

Did you have an echo?

I have had that done and also was monitored while running on a treadmill. However I'm quite fit and usually the palptations dont get triggered from running on a treadmill but when I play soccer for 20 minutes or like I said ejaculate which I find very weird since it doesnt happen during regular sex..

I see nothing wrong with this then. These palpitations are called PVCs and are quite common
