Sex during pregnancy: Is it safe?
Many couples have doubts regarding the dos and don’ts during pregnancy sex. We’ve got you some clarity:
- If it is a normal pregnancy, there is no problem at all with having sex until they go into labour. Abstaining or modifying sexual activities is required only if certain complications or circumstances develop.
- The muscles in the uterus and the amniotic sac are very strong and protect the foetus. So, your baby is not hurt during intercourse and the penis does not go beyond the vagina, so it never touches the baby.
- If you are having a normal, low risk pregnancy, orgasms or stimulation does not cause a miscarriage or induce labour. At most, they may cause mild and harmless temporary contractions.
- Some women find intercourse during this time more pleasurable while others not as much and breasts tend to become more tender and sensitive.
- Experiment with positions and do only what is comfortable for you during each stage of your pregnancy. Mild cramping for a few minutes is normal but if you begin to bleed or experience long durations of pain after intercourse then call your doctor or caregiver immediately.
Never hesitate to talk to your doctor whenever you have doubts or concerns and ensure that you fully understand what you can and cannot do.
