Is it dangerous to have sex during pregnancy?
As long as your pregnancy is progressing normally, you can have as much sex as you want. Many women worry that sexual activity during pregnancy can cause a miscarriage, but it’s important to know that most miscarriages are due to chromosomal abnormalities or other genetic problems with the baby, not to anything you do or don’t do in your sexual life as a couple. Your baby is protected by the amniotic fluid, as well as the strong muscles of the uterus and pelvis. So don’t worry, sexual activity won’t harm your baby!
During the first trimester of your pregnancy, sex can continue without any issues. You should take good care of hygiene and remember that you may not always feel like having sexual intercourse with your partner. Hormones, emotional changes, and nausea can temporarily decrease desire, but don’t worry, as the pregnancy progresses, you will feel more and more comfortable.
Just remember that it’s important to openly share your needs and concerns with your partner to avoid misunderstandings. Is it necessary to use a condom? Doctors recommend using a condom if there is a possibility that your partner has a sexually transmitted infection. But otherwise, there are no risks or implications that suggest the use of a condom. Sex is a way to maintain intimacy with your partner, as well as an opportunity to share with them.
