Can you have sex with a fractured pelvis?

I was just in a car accident about a week ago & I'm not sure how it happened but, I managed to fracture my pelvis. I can't walk without crutches but I can put some pressure on my right leg. But anyway, me & my boyfriend have a very active sex life & we weren't sure whether or not we could have sex now or not.

If you are young, your pelvis should heal fairly soon. Considering you can't bear much weight on your pelvis I, personally, wouldn't think it is a good idea to have sex. Only your health care professional can determine this, since they know exactly what condition your pelvis is in. Contact them and see if and when they give you the green light for sex.

Good Luck and feel better!
