8 Questions On Bedroom Wisdom

In the first few months of your pregnancy, a romp between the sheets may be the last thing on your mind as you deal with nausea, vomiting and fatigue. Your husband, too, may be feeling nervous about hurting you or the baby during sex.

Get your questions answered here:

1. Is it OK to have sex during pregnancy?
Nothing should stop you from making love if you are having a normal (low-risk) pregnancy.

2. Is there a danger of miscarriage?
Sex doesn’t cause miscarriage but you doctor may advise against intercourse early in pregnancy if you have a history of miscarriages.

3. Will it harm the baby?
Your developing baby is well protected by the amniotic fluid that surrounds him; and the mucus plug in the cervix protects him against infection.

4. What positions are OK?
Most positions are OK in the first trimester.

5. What about oral sex?
If having oral sex, make sure your partner doesn’t blow air into your vagina as it can cause embolism (a blockage of a blood vessel by an air bubble). This could be potentially dangerous for both mother and child.

6. Should my husband use condoms?
Exposure to sexually transmitted infections during pregnancy increases the risk of infections that can affect your pregnancy and your baby’s health. It is best to avoid all forms of sex if your partner has an active or recently diagnosed sexually transmitted infection.

7. When should we avoid sex?

Your doctor might recommend avoiding sex if:
You have unexplained vaginal bleeding
You’re leaking amniotic fluid
Your cervix begins to open prematurely
Your placenta partly or completely covers your cervical opening (placenta previa)
You have a history or signs of preterm labour or premature birth
You’re carrying multiples

8. Why do I not feel like making love?
You may feel too tired or nauseated to make love in the first trimester. But your libido may return in the second trimester.
