How to Enjoy Sex during Pregnancy

Author Victor Rodrigues
Submitted 05-11-2007

Sure, sex before pregnancy used to be a wild affair because all you could damage was the nightstand lamp during the most raging romp. However, pregnancy introduces other considerations. Once you have taken the required precautions, pregnancy sex can be equally enjoyable.

Questions that bother lovemaking couples during pregnancy are:

Is it safe to have sex during pregnancy?

According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, unless your spouse’s doctor tells you otherwise, sexual intercourse is safe throughout the pregnancy. Click “Pregnancy Basics – Is it Safe to have Sex?” to learn more.

Can vigorous copulation damage the baby?

The amniotic fluid in the uterus and the mucous membrane in the cervix protect the baby. Therefore, even a larger penis cannot hurt the baby. However, if you put your weight on the mother’s stomach, in a missionary position, you can cause her discomfort.

How often can we have sex without danger?

You can have sex as often as you want. Of course, the mother may not welcome sexual intercourse during the first trimester due to morning sickness and other unwelcome pregnancy symptoms. However, you could have enjoyable sex after the fourth month to even the more advanced stages of pregnancy.
