Heart Sexual Intercourse after MI!

A 50-year-old man has a cardiac arrest during sexual intercourse. He is promptly resuscitated and recovers uneventfully from an acute anterior wall myocardial infarction. At discharge from the hospital, he and his wife inquire about the safety of future sexual intercourse. Which of the following is the most appropriate advice?
A) Psychiatric consultation is necessary
B) Sexual intercourse should be performed while wearing an ambulatory ECG monitor
C) Sexual intercourse will be safe when exercise tolerance improves
D) They should wait 3 months before having sexual intercourse
E) They should have sexual intercourse as soon as possible to overcome the fear of another event

Many think the answer is C But the Answer is E!

Kaplan Master the boards step 3, page 48 clearly it says

"No waiting is necessary to have sex after infarction."



So many are getting this wrong!
