However, the point to be considered here is to be careful after hair transplantation and the necessary care should not be neglected.

Does the transplantation process prevent me from having sexual intercourse?

It would not be very healthy to have sexual intercourse immediately after hair transplantation. Because after the transplantation process, the roots must fully fuse with each other. For this reason, activities that will cause damage to the hair follicles should be avoided. If it is necessary to give an average time in this regard, sexual activity can be performed after a few days to a week after the operation. However, we recommend that you get information from your doctor for the most accurate result. Because everyone’s recovery time is different from each other.
