Worried about Having Sex Whilst you are Pregnant?


There are so many restrictions when you are carrying a new life inside you. Should sex be one such restriction, too? Couples invariably have this question on their minds. “Can we have sex during pregnancy?”, “Will sex harm our baby or induce early labor?” Well, sex is considered safe during a ‘normal pregnancy’, which means one that’s low on risk for complications such as miscarriage or pre-term labor.

Even in the midst of raging hormones, fatigue, and aching pains, most women have the desire for sex. They even experience multiple orgasms. That’s because of the rise in the hormone levels and increased blood flow to the vagina and breasts. However, the sex-desire varies in each stage of your pregnancy and you have a list of dos and don’ts.

  1. First trimester: With fatigue, nausea, vomiting, morning sickness, and tender breasts, perhaps sex is the last thing on a pregnant woman’s mind in the first trimester. Sex is neither enjoyable nor desirable then. Talking about nausea, you might even throw up the moment your husband comes close to you. Listen to what your body is telling you.
