Sex during pregnancy summons a number of myths that can send your sex life on a nine-month exile.
But honestly, do you think you can go 9 whole months without some action?
Most people believe that being pregnant means going through a period of abstaining from sex. No, that does not have to be the case.
Here are some myths that we’re about to debunk regarding sex during pregnancy. Whether you are a expecting or not, here’s something you need to know about making love after making a baby.
1. Is it safe?
Yes. If you’ve had a healthy pregnancy, there’s no reason why you and your partner can’t have sex. Don’t give in to those rumours, learn from your doctor.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.
2. Will it hurt the baby?
Taking into consideration that you are making love and not war under the sheets.
No, a baby isn’t hurt when a pregnant woman and her partner make love. During intercourse, the penis doesn’t go beyond the vagina, so it won’t reach the baby. So don’t be naive, just make the dive.
3. What are the benefits?
Getting it on with a growing belly isn’t always easy. However, sex during pregnancy is good for both you and your baby.
It can help you sleep better, lower your blood pressure, and even make you happier!
Just so the women know, your sex drive is going to be a bit wacky during these days because of your dancing hormones. Go ahead and make the most of it gurrrl.
Best positions during each trimester
The X factor in the sex equation amidst changing moods and your changing body can be redefined by the positions you’ll decide while in the act
The edge of couch missionary– He won’t be resting his body-weight on you, making it comfortable
Cowgirl– There’s no pressure on your belly, and you can control the speed and depth of penetration.
Spooning- Lie side by side with him behind you. This makes for more shallow penetration.
These are safe and help you quench your sexual thirst at this time of exile.
5.Wondering if oral sex, masturbation and everything in between (the sheets, that is) is safe when you’re expecting?
Most sex toys and moves are perfectly safe during pregnancy, with a few caveats.
Masturbation- helps relieve stress and tension.
Both dildos and vibrators are a safe in way to rev your engine during pregnancy: After all, they’re just mechanical versions of the real thing — though make sure anything you introduce into the vagina is clean before you use it.
Bottom line: Just about anything that feels good for you is safe for baby, as long as you have your doctor’s OK. While baby might enjoy uterine contractions during orgasm, he or she can’t see what you’re doing and definitely won’t remember it.
So don’t worry and enjoy every bit of your pregnancy period.
