Sounds like heart pauses between 1. and 2. heartbeat?

Sonetimes I listen to my boyfriends heart when we go to sleep or wake up. But I've noticed that his heartbeat sounds irregular. Not sure how much you can actually hear from the outside.

He's 22, exercise 5-6 times a week and is otherwise healthy.

Any reasons why it sounds like hvis heart suddenly stops in the middle of a heart beat? Between the to sounds (in the systole). It doesn't last long, but it happens a couple of times during a minute.

Hello~I wouldn't worry about it too much. If he is not noticing it, feels well and his doctor has never mentioned it, it is probably just "normal" for his heart. Have you asked him about it, does he feel any skips or strange feelings?
