Sex During Pregnancy
Can you have sex while pregnant?
Many soon-to-be mothers and fathers worry about whether they can have sex during pregnancy. In almost all cases – for most women, it is safe to have sex while pregnant.
In fact, many pregnant women find that their desire to have sex is stronger than ever during their pregnancy. This is a time where many hormones are coursing through their bodies, and often the effect can result in many women feeling very ‘horny’ during their pregnancy.
Some couples worry that having sex during pregnancy will harm the baby or cause early labor. Many men worry about their penis poking, prodding – or otherwise harming the baby during the act of intercourse. These concerns however, are not justified.
A woman’s body is designed to keep a developing baby safe. In the uterus, the baby is protected by amniotic fluid and the uterine muscles. The cervix is blocked with a mucous plug during pregnancy, shielding the baby from infection.
During intercourse, the penis cannot and will not actually touch the baby. This is a major concern that many men have – but not to worry as it doesn’t happen that way.
Orgasms can trigger uterine contractions, but they are not the same as going into labor.
There are some situations, however, when sex during pregnancy can be risky.
- · Past miscarriage(s) or concern about miscarriage in this pregnancy
- · Past early labor(s)
- · Carrying twins, triplets, etc.
- · Placenta previa, when the placenta covers the cervix
- · Leaking amniotic fluid
- · Incompetent cervix, when the cervix dilates too early
- · Partner with a sexually-transmitted disease
Of course, for most women – having sex during their pregnancy will cause absolutely no problems or concerns. If you have any questions about the safety of sex during your pregnancy, be sure to ask your doctor.
Concerns about how pregnancy or the baby will change your relationship with your partner might weigh heavily on your mind — even while you’re eagerly anticipating the addition to your family. Fears about sexual activity harming the baby or anxiety about childbirth might team up to sap your sex drive. Changes in your self-image might play a role as well, especially as your pregnancy progresses.
Many women experience changes in sex drive during pregnancy. You might find that you lose your interest in sex for a time. Or, your libido might increase. You might be too tired or find that some positions aren’t comfortable for you. This is a good time to experiment. Figure out what works best for you and your partner and, as always, keep the lines of communication open.
As your pregnancy progresses, try different things to find what works best. Rather than lying on your back, for example, you might want to lie next to your partner sideways or position yourself on top of your partner or in front of your partner. Let your creativity take over, as long as you keep mutual pleasure and comfort in mind.
