In brief: Depends

When was the pe? Usually anti coagulated for 6 or more months depending on underlying conditions.
For life with some coagulopathies! if no swelling of legs, bleeding etc your risk should be low. As always care and a caring partner are relevant.

In brief: Ask your md

If you are being treated with a blood thinner, it should be ok.
You should ask your treating doctor who should know the like cause for the clot and should advise you.
