Sex and blood thinners??? adult content

Okay so my husband has been out of the hospital now for 2 weeks and they just got his INR stable. He is on 7mg of coumadin for bilateral pulmonary embolism. My question is, is it okay to have sex? I'm not going to lie I'm starting to look at door knobs funny (lol), but I don't want to cause him to rupture something. Anyone have a significant other on anticoagulants? Is there anything I need to know about sex while my dh is on these meds?

  • NO not until you dr. clearsit.

    I warn you he may have a very hard time performing.

  • That and the fact that with the blood thinners he may not get a good stiff erection. Stick with your doorknob.

  • No problem been there done that and it is difficult. When he is stronger if necssary he can ask his Dr. if he can use thepurple pill.
    Some can and some can't.
    Be sure he does not use metaformin though as that is one of the side effects and it is not reversable. There are other similar choices but you do what you have to do right?
    And chin up DH had his first 16 years ago and he is still fine with a few hicups.

  • Well then I guess I'll just have to wait :-( but I don't want anything to happen to him. Thanks Dardenella. And I'm not to worried about the performance just miss that special time.
