The aim of this study was to investigate the avoidance behaviors of physical and sexual activity of coronary artery patients and the factors affecting avoidance behavior. This cross-sectional study was conducted at the Bülent Ecevit University Health Practice and Research Center on a total of 177 coronary artery patients who were diagnosed with myocardial infarction (MI) in the cardiology service and admitted to cardiology outpatient clinics after discharge. A questionnaire was used to collect the study data. Physical activity levels were determined by the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (UFAA) short form. Of the coronary artery patients, 55.9% avoid heavy lifting, 44.6% running, and 22.6% avoiding sexuality. Only 30.5% of the patients informed about the physical and sexual activity by the physician. According to the physician's information, a significant difference was found in the physical activity of the patients. According to the physical activity levels of the patients, behaviors of walking, housework and avoiding going out showed a significant difference. In the study, it was found that informing patients by the physician affects their physical activity status and physically active patients had less avoidance from some activities.
