Can I have sex after a hair transplant?

After the intervention, it is normal for us to ask ourselves many questions about the process. One of these questions is usually: Can I have sex after a hair transplant?

Knowing what to do and what to avoid after a hair graft is essential to achieve an optimal result after the intervention and to be able to wear the desired hairstyle with the density we expect.

For that reason, today we solve the doubt about whether you can have sex after a hair transplant or if it should be avoided.

Can you have sex after a hair transplant?

After performing this type of intervention, it is advisable to follow certain postoperative rules to spend this moment as calmly as possible. In case of not complying with the rules, it may happen that the result is not as expected.

For this reason, it is important to know if you can have sex after a hair transplant. In this way, we can avoid any act that could harm the result. But what is the answer?

We have to take into account that we will recover our usual life a month after the intervention, so we cannot have sexual relations during this first postoperative part.

It is the same with sports, where we can do smooth routines without sweating after 15 days and return to the usual rhythm a month. For that reason, we must act the same with any type of sexual activity; specific, we must avoid having sexual intercourse until 15 days after the intervention.

Any act that involves sweating, where very sudden movements are made or pressure is exerted on the head can end up affecting the results. In addition, it can also lead to the appearance of certain problems such as folliculitis or dermatitis.

For that reason, avoid having sexual intercourse after a hair transplant until it is completely safe to practice these types of acts normally. You can speak with our highly qualified team to resolve any questions regarding the postoperative that may arise.

Not having sex after a hair transplant

Postoperative rules of a hair graft

Avoid playing sports for the first month

The sun and water are not our allies during the first month. We have to avoid the sun and put our heads in the water and in the pool.
