Penis Implant

Are there any limitations or restrictions on sexual activities after penile prosthesis implantation?

After penile prosthesis implantation, there are typically some limitations and restrictions on sexual activities during the initial post-operative period. These restrictions are in place to ensure proper healing, reduce the risk of complications, and maximize the long-term success of the procedure. Here are some common limitations and guidelines:

  1. Abstinence Period: Patients are usually advised to abstain from sexual activity, including masturbation and intercourse, for a specified period after surgery. The duration of this abstinence period varies but is typically several weeks to a couple of months. It is essential to follow the surgeon’s specific recommendations.
  2. Device Activation: For inflatable penile prostheses (IPPs), there is often an activation period after surgery during which the device should not be inflated. The surgeon will provide instructions on when and how to activate the device. This period allows for proper healing of the surgical site.
  3. Follow-Up Appointments: Regular follow-up appointments with the surgeon are essential to monitor the progress of healing and the performance of the prosthesis. The surgeon will provide guidance on when it is safe to resume sexual activity.
  4. Caution with Rough or Vigorous Activity: Patients should exercise caution and avoid rough or overly vigorous sexual activity, especially during the initial recovery period. Vigorous activity can potentially stress the surgical site and increase the risk of complications.
  5. Use of Lubrication: Lubrication can be beneficial during sexual activity to reduce friction and enhance comfort. Water-based lubricants are typically recommended for use with penile prostheses, as oil-based or silicone-based lubricants can damage the prosthesis materials.
  6. Regular Use of the Prosthesis: In some cases, the surgeon may recommend regular inflation and deflation of the penile prosthesis to maintain its function and prevent complications. This can be part of post-operative care.
