Sexual life and Pregnancy

Sex is safe if your pregnancy is normal. The amniotic fluid surrounding the baby will keep him or her safe and protected.  As long as you are comfortable, any sexual position should not be of concern. A few things to be aware of, however:Picture2

  1. If you are receiving oral sex, make sure your partner does not blow into your vagina. In rare occasions, the air can block a blood vessel causing life-threatening conditions to you and your baby.
  2. Anal sex is generally not recommended as bacteria from the anus can transfer to the vagina causing vaginal infection.
  3. It is strongly recommended that pregnant women not have intercourse with a partner with known sexual transmitted infections, as these can be extremely harmful to your baby.
