Many women, and even their men, are interested in such a delicate question: is it possible to have sex during pregnancy? There is no exact answer. Sometimes the gynecologist immediately warns that it is better to abstain, but during the normal course of pregnancy there are no contraindications to sex!
Features of pregnant sex
During pregnancy, a woman cares not only about herself, but also about the future of the baby. Of course, if a young mother feels great, she has a craving for a partner, then sex is not contraindicated. A woman during pregnancy needs the support of her husband, and in this matter they must be of the same opinion.
In the first trimester, the woman’s body is rebuilt, getting used to the new state. At this time, a pregnant girl is often sluggish, sleepy, she is constantly nauseous. And, as a rule, the desire weakens. Husbands should become a support for the future mother, and not blame her.
In the second trimester, the condition improves, fears pass, confidence appears that everything will be fine. A woman wakes up desire at this time. The child is already well protected, and doctors say that during this period sex is absolutely safe.
When the third trimester begins, the woman already has a big enough belly. It is harder for her to move around, a new fear of childbirth appears. Often during sex there may be pain.
But, here it is interesting that when prolonging pregnancy, doctors are advised to have sex for the onset of labor. I was so in the second pregnancy, my daughter did not want to go out even at week 41.
Doctors believe that sex during pregnancy can have a positive effect on the condition of the woman. For example, at this moment the hormone of joy is released, which favorably affects the mother and the child. But prolonged abstinence causes negative emotions.
Doctors say that the male sperm contains substances necessary for any woman. By the way, there are prostaglandins that soften the cervix, which helps it to open up during childbirth.
The muscles of the uterus during sex are reduced, and this is like training future contractions. Contraction of the uterus will not adversely affect the immature fetus. But it is sex that can be the beginning of labor for 40-41 weeks.
Do not forget that there are times when it is better to abstain from sex.
- The threat of termination of pregnancy. In this case, the doctor warns you can not have sex. I was warned in the first trimester.
- If suddenly there is bloody discharge.
- If before this pregnancy was a miscarriage.
- When there is leakage of amniotic fluid.
- If the ultrasound showed a low location of the placenta.
- When multiple pregnancies are also recommended to abstain from sex.
In my opinion, sex is a very delicate matter and often we, women, are afraid or shy to talk about it with a loved one. But often it is by talking that one can avoid problems, omissions and recriminations.
Ideally, when a pregnant woman and her husband have sexual desires the same. Or if the husband is sympathetic to the state of his beloved and tries not to cause her inconvenience. I was lucky and my husband is just that.
