    You should be able to have sex if you have atrial fibrillation without any negative consequences. Your heart rate may not increase as much because your medication is working to control your heart rate. Some medications for hypertension or other heart problems may cause impotence in men, but this condition may be treated with an impotence drug such as Viagra or Cialis. Talk to your doctor about any concerns you may have about having sex and the effects of medication for A-fib.
