There are a lot of questions out there about how to have safe sex during pregnancy. For a lot of women, this is a big anxiety-producing topic. They want to be able to please their husbands and also keep their unborn babies safe. So it’s important to find a balance between these two extremes in order to enjoy a good sexual relationship from time to time.
You might be wondering if it’s okay to have sex while you’re pregnant. You might have heard that you shouldn’t, or that it’s bad for the baby. But actually, medical research has shown that sex during pregnancy can actually be beneficial! It helps keep the vaginal area flexible and soft, and can prevent the vulval area and vaginal from becoming too tight. So if you’re pregnant, don’t be afraid to have sex with your spouse every now and then!
Sex can help ease a pregnant woman’s tension and anxieties, as well as help her feel relaxed. This is because during sex, certain hormones are released in the brain which have therapeutic power. In general, sex has a calming effect on people because of these hormones. So, if a pregnant woman is feeling stressed or anxious, she may want to consider having sex with her partner as a way to relax and feel better.
It’s a common myth that sexual intercourse during pregnancy will directly affect the unborn baby, when in reality, they are fully protected by the amniotic sac. The sac is a thin-walled bag where amniotic fluid surrounds the fetus, and is further supported and protected by the strong muscle of the womb. There is no cause for worry or concern in this respect.
A pregnancy condition called “thick mucus” usually covers the cervical opening of the womb. This prevents infection and allows the baby to develop safely. Man’s semen cannot penetrate the mucus, which is a good thing because semen contains a chemical that could cause false labor or premature labor. So, there is no need for pregnant women to worry about ejaculation during sex.
Another thing to consider is that, for most men, their manhood cannot reach the fetus during sex. The average penis length falls short of the cervix. However, there are certain sex positions that tend to shorten the length of the vaginal canal, which could cause the penis to go too deep towards the cervix. In general, no matter the length of a penis, deep thrusting should be avoided in any sex position that is dangerous to pregnancy.
Sex during pregnancy is not likely to cause miscarriage under normal, low-risk pregnancy conditions. Studies have shown that the kind of orgasmic contractions associated with coitus are quite different from the childbirth contractions. However, if a pregnant woman has any concerns, she should speak with her healthcare provider.
If you’re still feeling fearful or unsure about your reproductive health, it’s important to consult with your doctor. This way, you can find out if your pregnancy is proceeding normally before you start having intercourse with your partner.
It is generally suggested that people stop having sex close to their Expected Date of Delivery (EDD), which is six weeks out. This, however, is not a steadfast rule and depends on the individual’s medical history. Listen to your doctor’s advice. For me personally, I often abstained from sex 4-5 weeks before the birth of my children!
