Healthcare providers are expected to provide information and support as myocardial infarction (MI) patients resume normal activities, including sexual relations. The healthcare literature, however, suggests that few providers follow through with the assessment of understanding, provision of appropriate information, and support for patients with MI in resuming their sexual activity. The purpose of the study was to examine trends in sexual concerns of patients with MI and patterns of sexual concerns in early, middle, and later recovery periods.
