    Hi Lara and a warm welcome to the community.
    Have you read some of the British Lung Foundation's suggestions about managing sex and breathlessness? Maybe something there might be of use. If not, perhaps our resident @PSHEexpert might be able to advise?

    Thankyou all for your very kind input.....yes I think it will be a case of trial and error but am lucky to have a very understanding partner.

    Hi @Lara and a warm welcome to the community! I'm glad your partner is very understanding. I personally don't have anything else to add but I hope you feel welcomed and other members can offer their suggestions.
