Can you have sex while you have a groin hernia?

Yes. It may or may not aggravate things, but most likely it will be fine.
Yes. Groin (inguinal) hernias remain one of the most common operations performed by general surgeons such as myself. Traditional teaching was to repair all of these due to the risk of intestine getting stuck in these. Nowadays, we recommend repair for those that are causing symptoms or large enough to lead to the above complication. Like any exertional activity, sex is fine if you have no symptoms.
