Sexual Intercourse After Hair Transplant.
What Should Be Considered?

There are many factors that affect the regular and healthy growth of the hair transplanted with hair transplant operations. Among these factors affecting the development of transplanted hair follicles is sexual intercourse. For this reason, doctors banned sexual intercourse for a while after hair transplant operations. Therefore, the question of why sexual intercourse is prohibited after hair transplantation is also a matter of curiosity. Sexual intercourse, which is an element of human reproduction and sense of pleasure, poses a risk for newly planted hair follicles with the hair transplant method. Therefore, patients who have hair transplantation should take a break from sexual intercourse and activities for a while. In this way, they protect the hair follicles against possible dangers.

CAN YOU HAVE SEXUAL INTERCOURSE BEFORE HAIR TRANSPLANT SURGERY?

Like the question of why sexual intercourse is prohibited after hair transplantation, it is also a matter of curiosity before the operation. Generally, 5 to 7 days before hair transplantation operations, it is necessary to stay away from sports, sexual activity and cardiovascular activities that will leave us breathless. The reason for this avoidance is to prevent the thinning of our blood as a result of these activities. For this reason, it is necessary to avoid sexual intercourse before and after hair transplant surgeries.

WHAT ARE THE REASONS FOR PROHIBITION OF SEXUAL INTERCOURSE AFTER HAIR TRANSPLANTATION?

In hair transplant operations, after the hair follicles taken from the donor area are integrated into the transplant area, it takes time for the integrated hair follicles to settle in their sockets and to develop. Especially in the first week after hair transplantation, specialist physicians who perform the transplantation process prohibit some activities because it is very sensitive. Sports and sexual intercourse that we do regularly are within these restrictions. Since sweating will occur during sexual intercourse after hair transplantation, some undesirable situations may occur.

These are:

  • The possibility of infection of the transplanted hair follicles
  • Itching
  • The possibility of bleeding due to increased heart rate

HAVING SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP AS A SWEATING ACTIVITY

The first reason for the prohibition of sexual intercourse after hair transplant surgery; It is the formation of sweating due to the energy spent with sexual intercourse and the movements made. Due to the effort we expend during this sexual intercourse, we need more oxygen. At the same time, our muscles spend more energy and with it, our blood pressure naturally rises. As a result of this activity, while the muscles meet their oxygen needs, the rising body temperature reaches the skin through the blood flow to return to its normal temperature, creating sweating. Sweating that takes place after hair transplantation poses a danger to the hair follicles that are in the process of settling in their nests.

POSSIBILITY OF INFECTION OF TRANSPLANTED HAIR ROOTS

The wounds in the hair transplant area do not heal very quickly. Therefore, wounds can become infected due to sweating during sexual intercourse. Germ-trapped wounds pose the risk of infection in the next stage. As it is known, the biggest cause of hair follicle inflammation after hair transplantation operations is microbes. These microbes are naturally formed by perspiration. In order not to cause inflammation in any way, sexual intercourse is prohibited after hair transplantation.

POSSIBILITY OF BLEEDING DUE TO INCREASED HEART RATE

The effort that occurs with sexual intercourse can cause bleeding in our hair follicles, depending on the energy consumption of our muscles. When these muscles work harder than normal, they put pressure on the capillaries under our scalp and cause bleeding. As a result, bleeding will lead to the death of hair follicles. Your direct hair transplant operation will be adversely affected.

HOW LONG IS SEXUAL INTERCOURSE FORBIDDEN AFTER HAIR TRANSPLANTATION?

Although patients generally return to their normal lives after 3 days after hair transplantation operations, this period is early for the start of sexual intercourse. Therefore, it is necessary to wait a little longer for sexual intercourse. The reason for this is that after hair transplantation, sexual intercourse creates problems in the transplanted area and prevents the healing process. At the same time, it will cause the loss of hair follicles and prolong the healing process.

Considering all these factors, it would be appropriate to wait for sexual intercourse after hair transplantation, which is the sensitive period of 1 week after hair transplantation. It is important not to pose any danger as the planting area has not healed yet. At the end of 1 week, patients can return to their sexual lives. However, just in case, patients should be careful during this time. Even after 1 week has passed since October, the region is still unprotected against impacts. Therefore, patients should be careful about this issue for 2-3 more weeks. Taking a break from sexual intercourse for a while after hair transplantation prevents the hair follicles from being damaged. All these measures are for the successful conclusion of the hair transplant operation we have undergone.
