In brief: If AOK, not long

If the procedure was uncomplicated, a few days should suffice.
The real issues are often psychological, with partners being afraid of hurting the patient, and the patient being afraid of "failing this stress test" and getting symptoms. Going slowly and gently, with female superior to start, often provides the confidence and security to subsequently resume normal intimacy.
