Your pregnancy is coming to an end, and soon you’ll have your baby in your arms. How exciting! During this period, both you and your partner have experienced many new things. Now more than ever, it’s important to strengthen the emotional and physical bond with your partner. You don’t have to give up intimacy during pregnancy. It’s normal for new doubts and concerns to arise at this stage. But don’t worry, we’re here to answer some of the most common questions that many women have during pregnancy!
Can sex or orgasms bring on labor?
Don’t worry! Orgasms can cause contractions in the uterus, but they are very different from labor contractions. So having sex or experiencing orgasms won’t make your baby decide to come early.
Is there a time when I should avoid having sex?
In most cases, you can have sex without any problems throughout your pregnancy. However, if you have any complications, a history of preterm births, unexplained vaginal bleeding, or leakage of amniotic fluid, it’s best to avoid it for now. We recommend consulting your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms.
How long should I wait after childbirth to have sex?
Whether you’ve had a natural birth or a cesarean section, your body needs time to recover. It is recommended to wait at least 6 weeks before resuming sexual activity. Remember, patience is key!
But wait, intimacy is not limited to sex! Keep in touch with your partner in other ways. Don’t forget that you’re experiencing a special and exciting time. Enjoy this time together and don’t hesitate to communicate with your partner and medical team if you have more questions or concerns.
