This should not be a concern for you. Your boyfriend should have enough self control and love for you that is does not matter whether or not he gets "some". If it was my wife, I would tell her we wait a week after she's cleared
just to be safe. If your boyfriend doesn't understand common courtesy and civility. ..kick him to the curb.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post and I hope you recover well!

This question is something you need to ask your doctor or physical therapist if you are seeing one. They will know what sides or areas to avoid/put pressure on and what position will be most comfortable and safe.

In that case, Anon, I think you should ahead but put no pressure on that particular hip and if you feel any pain at all, stop and "reposition" or stop completely. Remember that if intercourse ends up being too painful (for now) there are other things you can do in bed. 

Good luck!
