Can I have sex while recovering from fractured hip?

I am recovering from a fractured hip. I haven't had surgery, but it is mending by itself while I'm on crutches. I'm going on my 6th week. Am wondering if it would hurt the recovery to have sex, or what positions I should use?

Thanks for the question as i have fractured hip from falling on ice! I'm on day 10 of bedrest and it kills me to think of 4-5 more weeks of it. But my hubs wondered about the sex, lol. Happy healing!

Hi Anon!

Thank you for your post!

The best positions for sex during this time are the ones that are the least painful. You'll have to experiment to see what feels best. Some cushions as props could help too.

Talk to your doctor about whether this is a good idea while you heal.

I wish you a speedy recovery.
