• I think you should stay away from it because it could harm the child in many ways. Read up on the following link:
  • According to What to Expect When You're Expecting Concern about Sex 1)"In a NORMAL PREGNANCY sexual intercourse will not likely harm the baby. The Fetus is well cushioned and protected inside the amniotic sac and utterus, and the uterus is securely sealed off from the outside wold by a mucous plug in the mouth of the cervix." (p235) Concern about Orgasm 2)Although the uterus does contract following orgasm - and these contractions can be quite pronounced in some women, lasting as long as half an hour after intercourse - such contractions are not a sign of labor and pose no danger in a NORMAL PREGNANCY. ... However, orgasm, particularly the more intense kind that may be triggered by masturbation, may be prohibited in pregnancies at high risk for miscarriage or premature labor." (p 235) So what's a "normal pregnancy"? It's one that's considered low-risk for complications such as miscarriage or pre-term labor. Talk to your doctor, nurse-midwife, or other pregnancy health care provider if you're uncertain about whether you fall into this category. I am glad to hear that you and the baby seem to be doing well. I wanted to provide you with the information above but capped "normal pregnancy" because you have had something occur that makes it not as normal of a pregnancy. I think, with that in mind, you really need to speak with your doctor about your concerns and individual situation. I am quite sure you doctor has had a similar conversation with many of their other patients and with that you should not feel odd talking with them about sex. I know it is a sensitive subject so I want to make it clear that just because I said not so normal doesn't mean I don't think everything will be fine. Cause I do. It sounds like you are in great care and I wish you the best with the rest of your pregnancy. For the record, I intentionally didn't answer your question except to say go to you doctor because each case/person is different.
  • You need to talk to your doctor about this, he/she will be able to inform you better than us, or call your local public health nurse.
  • What does your doctor say? If your doctor says it's okay, then it probably is. If your doctor says you should avoid having sex, then that's what you should do. In a low risk pregnancy, having sex won't harm the fetus in any way. However, if you had a threatened miscarriage, then your pregnancy is no longer low-risk (for the time being, at least) and different rules apply.
  • you need to ask your doctor about that
