Pregnant women and their partners often wonder if it’s safe to have sex during pregnancy. Will it result in miscarriage? Will it harm the unborn baby? Are there sex positions to avoid? Here’s the information you’ve been looking for.
How safe is pregnancy sex?
Unless your doctor or midwife has strict,it’s absolutely safe — for you, your developing baby.
Women who have orgasms during pregnancy benefit from calming hormones and increased cardiovascular blood flow, and those benefits get passed down to baby, notes Aleece Fosnight, a physician assistant and sex counselor in urology, women’s health, and sexual medicine.
How can pregnancy affect your sex life?
Your interest in sex and desire for sex can change throughout pregnancy. Here are some common sex drive changes you may feel during pregnancy:
First trimester. Changing hormone levels early in pregnancy and changes in your body’s shape may make you feel sexy. But these changes also may lead to pregnancy discomforts that make you less interested in sex, like feeling tired or sick to your stomach , having sore breasts and needing to go to the bathroom often.
Second trimester. You may feel better during the second trimester. Discomforts you may have had in the first trimester may have gone away or you may be able to manage them better in the second trimester.
Third trimester. Toward the end of pregnancy, you may feel less interested in having sex. As your belly gets bigger, you may find some sex positions to be uncomfortable. It’s OK to have these feelings! You and your partner can still be loving and close even if you don’t want to have sex.
1. Is pregnancy sex all that different from regular sex
Due to some changes during pregnancy, many women may feel different while having sex. Certain changes take place; the increased blood flow to the lower parts of the body can heighten sensitivity in some women, while for many others vaginal fluid changes make for an easier time. But not all women are so lucky.
2. Does pregnancy affect a womans libido
Pregnancy is not the same for every woman, but some women experience low sexual desire because of the hormonal changes. Mostly in the second trimester, the libido returns as these symptoms decreases, and she again feels energetic.
3. Which positions are most comfortable for pregnancy sex?
- To keep the weight off of your stomach, let your partner lie on his back while you straddle. You can also control penetration and pace in this position.
- To avoid deep penetration, lie on your side and let your partner lie behind you.
- With your feet and legs bent, lie on edge of the bed. After the first trimester, use a pillow under one side; don’t lie flat on your back.
