1.Can I have sex during pregnancy without loosing my baby?

Having sex during pregnancy won’t provoke a miscarriage. Most miscarriages occur because the fetus isn’t developing normally. Additionally, miscarriages are often caused by known and unknown reasons which can be environmental, maternal age, hormones and implantation issues.

The amniotic fluid in your womb, with its tight muscles, shield your growing infant. As long as you don’t have conditions like preterm labor or placenta disorders, sexual intercourse will have little effect on your fetus. Pregnancy, on the other hand, will alter your satisfying experience and sexual appetite.

2. Do we need to use condoms?

Having a sexually transmitted infection when pregnant will result in significant health issues for both you and your child. If the pregnant woman has an untreated or newly detected sexually transmitted illness, she should avoid all types of sex — genital, oral, and anal.

If you’re in the following situations, you can use a condom:

  • You’re not in a monogamous relationship with your partner.
  • During your labor, you decide to have sex with a new partner.

3. Are there times when sex should be not be allowed?

Yes there are!Uterine contractions may be caused by breast stimulation, female orgasms, and the hormones found in sperm called prostaglandins.

If you have any of the following symptoms, your healthcare provider can advise you to avoid sex:

  • You’re experiencing unexplained vaginal bleeding.
  • Amniotic fluid is escaping from you.
  • Your cervix starts to open too soon (cervical incompetence)
  • Your placenta blocks your cervical cavity partially or entirely (placenta previa).

4. Every pregnant woman is different

During pregnancy every woman’s experiences are unique, including her feelings about sex.
During breastfeeding, certain women’s appetite wanes. When pregnant, other women become more closely tied to their bodies and more easily aroused.
It’s natural for sexual appetite to fluctuate during pregnancy as the body grows. As your belly expands, you will feel self-conscious. Alternatively, you may find that having a large body makes you feel sexier.

6. Some pregnant women have a different sex libido

The following is a normal libido cycle during pregnancy:


This is the first trimester: Your sex drive can be killed by nausea, exhaustion, or breast tenderness. This is short lived and will soon be over.
This is the second trimester: It’s possible that the libido would go into overdrive. Increased blood circulating in the body will also improve your orgasms.
This is the third trimester: When the due date approaches, sex can become awkward.

7. Talk to your partner about how you are feeling

Talking to your partner can help to resolve issues that you may be feeling at this time.

Try out different positions and see what works. Adjust what you’re doing if anything doesn’t feel right for any of you, and speak to your OB about any medical issues. Remember everything does not have to be sexual as you and your partner might not desire sex at the same time. However, you can indulge in affection in other respects as well. Touch, cuddle, or massage each other. Take a bath together in a bubble bath.

If vaginal dryness makes sex awkward, use a lubricant.

Remember God cares for you


Bottom line

Sex changes during pregnancy. It is important that couples identify when they are having sexual challenges and deal with them accordingly. While sex is permissible during pregnancy you must be aware of when it should be avoided. Condoms are provide protection against sexually transmitted infections.

Keep your relationship as happy as possible and know that God loves you. Talk to Him about your issues because He cares for you. Thank you for visiting today and feel free to like , comment or ask a question. Do visit again. You can like, comment, or ask a question. I would love to hear from you.
