Is it safe to have sex during pregnancy?

Is it safe to have sex during pregnancy?
It is the most common question to all couples and the answer is YES.  You can sex during the pregnancy and it's totally safe. In short, if you (lady) had a healthy pregnancy, there’s no reason why no for sex with your partner because The baby is protected by the amniotic fluid in the womb, by your abdomen, and by the mucus plug which seals your cervix and helps guard against infections.
Your partner's penis won’t damage your baby in any way while you're having sex. You may find your baby moves around a bit after you've had an orgasm. It's nothing to worry about. Your baby's reacting to the pounding of your heart. He doesn't know what's happening or feel any discomfort.
You may have heard that having sex can bring on labour before your baby is ready to be born. This is not true, as long as you have had a straightforward pregnancy. 

When is sex during pregnancy NOT safe?

if you are healthy and fit then no problem with sex during pregnancy but if you are not comfortable and one of them below circumstances where you may have to be careful about having sex

  • ·    History of premature birth or labor
  • ·       History of miscarriage
  • ·       If your water has broken
  • ·       If you experience unexplained vaginal bleeding or discharge
  • ·       If you have placenta previa, or a very low-lying placenta
  • ·       If you have an incompetent cervix or if it has dilated
  • ·       If you or your partner has a sexually transmitted disease

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.
