Sex after hip replacement
An_205584 posted:
What position works best for someone who recently had a hip replaced?
Duckblind responded:
Best to ask your doctor.
HairyD responded:
Your PT is a good person to discuss sexual positions. They know how high and wide you are able to do with your exercises. I would do the position that feels good. Stop if it hurts and in a few weeks if I like that position try it again. The PT will help with a exercise to do your favorite sexual position if you would discuss this with him / her.

Keep us posted. What is your favorite position?
Sheldon Marks, MD responded:
never been asked that again. I would think best with the person with hip replacement flat on back. Would best defer that to the orthopedic surgeon and or physical therapist.
