Answer: Hello dear. Yes intercourse is allowed. A baby isn't hurt when a pregnant woman and her partner intercourse. The amniotic sac and the strong muscles of the uterus protect the baby, and the thick mucus plug that seals the cervix helps guard against infection. However make sure you have no other pregnancy complications.
Question: I am 30 weeks pregnant..can we have intercourse at this stage?
Intercourse during pregnancy is to be avoided only when the pregnancy is associated with any complications..like short cervix (the opening of the uterus)...or have previous history of bleeding per vagina..previous abortions...or premature contractions etc
Pregnancy is a normal physiological process and you need not restrain yourself from intercourse.
The only known factor is that during orgasms a small amount of oxytocin is released which cause mild contraction in the muscular layer of the uterus..it will be so mild that the contractions are never felt.
Hope this helps!
Question: Hi iam 36 weeks pregnant. Can we intercourse at this moment?
Answer: Yes, if you've had a healthy pregnancy, there's no reason why you and your partner can't have a full and satisfying sex life.
Rest assured, having sex cannot harm your baby. During intercourse your baby stays cushioned and safe in the amniotic fluid. Also, the cervix is closed and has a mucus plug, which makes it impassable.
Your husband will not be able to penetrate deep enough to reach your baby. And although orgasms can trigger uterine contractions, these do not cause any harm and are different from contractions during labour.
However, your gynaecologist may advise you to not have sex if you:
have a history or threat of miscarriage.
have unexplained vaginal bleeding or spotting
have abdominal pain or cramps
have a history of cervical weakness
are pregnant with twins or multiple babies
have a low lying placenta or placenta pervia.
