Many pregnant women have a question “is it safe to have sex during pregnancy”?
The answer depends on your pregnancy and on your health. If you have “normal” pregnancy without any risks for your baby it is completely safe to have sex. Even more – sex brings you good emotions and this is very good to you and your baby.
Also you don’t need to think of contaception and can relax and get more pleasure from a sex.
If you are worring about your baby – you should not – your baby is well protected by musculars and waters so you can not do any injury for your little baby during gentle, loving sex.
Some moms to be asks about contactions and orgasm – are they safe for your pregnancy?
The contractions that you may feel during and just after orgasm are different from the contractions associated with labor. However, you should check with your doctor to be sure that your pregnancy falls into the low-risk category.
However, you need to be very careful during sex. Talk to your partner about you feeling. And you both need to be very careful and think of your baby.
There are some special positions for sex during pregnancy:
- Woman on top – allows the woman to control the amount of penetration, keeps the weight off the bump, gives the man a great view
- Rear entry positions – for example the woman on all fours with the man kneeling behind. Experiment with the position that feels best and take it gently, because this allows more penetration
- Spoons – lie on your side with the woman’s back towards the man’s front, with him entering from behind. This keeps his weight off the bump and makes penetration quite shallow, which some couples prefer during late pregnancy
Also you need to remember that because of the different changes of your body, you may want to make some changes to make things more comfortable. Here is some information to consider when thinking about sex during pregnancy:
- Exhaustion, hormonal fluctuations, tender breasts and self-consciousness about weight gain can bring your sex drive to a halt. Sometimes you may need rest to regain energy – give yourself a break.
- The common missionary position may become uncomfortable and warrant considering other positions such as side by side or with you on top.
- As your breasts increase in size, they may become more tender or sore. Encourage your partner to explore other parts of your body and to find other ways to caress you. With the changes in your breast it is best to avoid direct nipple stimulation.
- There is increased blood flow to the pelvic area that can lead to engorgement of the genitals and heighten the sensation; however, for some women this can be more uncomfortable.
Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, you and your partner should be able to enjoy sex during your pregnancy. Pay attention to your body and make adjustments so that you can enjoy the experience to the fullest.
Love your partner and your baby and be happy!
