Obviously, it’s ill-advised to resume sexual activity during the acute phase of the heart attack even if it is uncomplicated. But for most patients who survived their heart attacks, and are no longer having chest pains with ordinary physical activities, sexual intimacy can be safely resumed within a few weeks following a heart attack.
Doctors may do further tests to find out those who are at high risk to develop another heart attack but even without these tests one can determine whether a heart patient is ready to resume sex if he can already walk briskly for 10 minutes or climb up one flight of stairs without experiencing undue shortness of breath or chest pains. Without these warning symptoms, there is little danger in having sex after a heart attack, provided it’s not the acrobatic or other more strenuous types of sex.
