In brief: Get creative
Depending on your specific condition, some adjustments may be necessary.
An understanding partner and a doc you feel comfortable talking to can make a big difference. For example, if your disability impairs movement, you may need positions in which you are less active. Some medications and treatments may also affect sexual performance or response, so work with a doc you can talk with comfortably.
