If you ask about sex in pregnancy, to any experienced woman, she will say that it feels quite different to do sex in her pregnancy even it is more pleasurable.
For a normal pregnancy, often it is quite safe to do sex until woman possesses labour. But in some special circumstances, you have to abstain from doing sex altogether. You should consult with your doctor if you have developed any complication which prohibits sex during pregnancy.
Physical and Mental States During Pregnancy
Blood flow increases to pelvic areas which makes genitals’ engorgement. And they are a witness of highest sensation which stimulates more pleasure while doing sex.
A pregnant women’s breast and nipples may feel tender, sensitive to touch, and tingly. Your breast remains more sensitive.
Maybe some other women do not like these strange feelings. You should talk about this with your partner. It may happen that you are feeling turned on but not enjoying the intercourse. You should try other erotic activities then such as oral sex, mutual pleasuring, and self-stimulation.
Such types of experiments make sex between a couple more pleasurable and relaxing. The pregnancy time is more about intimacy rather than intercourse. Understand that kissing, caring, hug, and curdle is far important than just sex.
Effect on Baby
In pregnancy, while making love with her partner, the baby does not get hurt. Baby is quite safe with water bag or amniotic sac and uterus strong muscles. The mucus plug is so thick and seals cervix. It helps to save a pregnant woman from infection. Intercourse does not allow the penis to cross the vagina, so penis doesn’t reach to baby and baby stays safe. However, male should ensure that he should not put his weight over her and every push should be so gentle.
Sex and Labour
Orgasm or sexual stimulation does not increase causes of miscarriage or start the labour pain. It is possible that orgasm can be the reason of uterine contractions mildly but these contractions are harmless and temporary.
Oral sex in most part is safe. Touching, rubbing, licking and kissing to vertical lips is quite good. But blowing into the genital part is not recommended. There could be air embolism if you blow or force air inside the vagina. It may be life-threatening to the infant as well as the pregnant woman. It rarely happens but prevention is better to curve the mishaps.
When your male partner has an active oral herpes outbreak, it is unsafe to have oral sex too. Or if you are not sure about the HIV status of your male partner, oral sex is not safe.
