Sex can be resumed immediately if the stress test showed no abnormality before discharge.

the amount of workload to the heart is minimal unless you are a pornstar and can last for hours then it is no problem

Depends who you are having it with.....

Wife can wait for 2-3 weeks.

If it is anyone else you can do it if the stress test is normal.

If it is Julia Roberts ( i.e. women of your dreams) than don't even wait for the stress test since you won't get another chance in this lifetime.

You may survive another MI but it will be difficult to live with yourself (forgive yourself) after missing a chance like that.

Sexual activity after myocardial infarction
Quote:
Coital angina appears to represent less than 5% of all anginal attacks. Sexual activity is often equated with an exercise workload of 2 to 3 metabolic equivalents of task (METS) in the pre-orgasmic phase and 3 to 4 METS in the orgasmic phase. Exercise testing is often used to assess exercise tolerance and capacity for safely resuming sexual activity after myocardial infarction (MI). Less than 1% of MIs occur during sexual activity, as an attributable risk. The relative risk of coital-induced MI is 2.5 times greater than during non-coital activities; this risk is threefold greater in individuals with previous MI. The duration of exposure to this increased risk appears to be 2 hours following coitus. Past MI patients who are asymptomatic and do not exhibit treadmill-induced ischemia are at low risk for coital MI. Exercise training after acute MI improves cardiovascular efficiency and reduces myocardial oxygen demand during customary activities, including sexual activity. A patient with a recent MI (< 2 weeks) remains at high risk for coitalinduced reinfarctions, cardiac ruptures, or coital-induced arrhythmias. Post-MI individuals should be risk stratified according to the Princeton Consensus Panel II guidelines. Low-risk patients with erectile dysfunction can be safely treated with a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor. Patients should be cautioned about the contraindication between PDE5 medications and nitrates.
Quote:
Cardiovascular complications from sexual activity are unusual and are often exaggerated. The physiologic cost of sexual activity is modest. The average energy requirement for foreplay and orgasm is estimated to be about 3.5 and
4.7 to 5.5 METS, respectively. Absolute risk caused by sexual activity is considerably low: one chance in one million healthy individuals. Cardiac rehabilitation and exercise training programs can reduce incidence of angina pectoris during sexual activity.
