Safe sex during pregnancy: few things you need to know
Sex is a wonderful way for partners to remain intimate during pregnancy. It is usually safe, as long as some guidelines are followed:

  • Woman on top positions or side-lying may be more comfortable as pregnancy advances.
  • Deep penetration should be at the discretion and comfort of the mother.
  • Water or air (or any foreign objects) in the vagina should not be part of any sex play during pregnancy. Douching should never be done during pregnancy.
  • Understanding, empathy, creativity and humor will be good assets to love making during pregnancy.
  • You should be aware that orgasm, as well as breast stimulation, can cause the uterus to contract, this will not cause miscarriage. A bit of cramping after intercourse can be very normal. Of course, if cramping continues, or if it is associated with any spotting, you should see your care provider right away.
