Answer

There is no absolute time which one should refrain from sexual activity after TURP. I advise patients that they can resume sexual activity usually within 2-3 weeks, providing they are not experiencing blood in the urine nor any burning with urination. Ejaculation most likely will not occur, but if it does, expect it to initially be bloody.
