If you notice symptoms like shortness of breath, cough, feeling nervous, and chest pain while having physical relations, then it is a sign that your asthma has gone out of control. However, this does not mean that you cannot have physical relations with your partner. You will have to keep some things in mind while forming a relationship so that any physical problem does not increase further.
