For today’s questions, we touch on a topic related to parenting and sex ed from you and we’re delighted to have sex educator Darleen Proud share her answer below.
During pregnancy, how can a couple continue to have sex and satisfy one another’s needs?
Sex during pregnancy is no different to sex at any other time. In fact it can be quite liberating… if you have used contraception your whole sex life and made a decision to have a baby… you no longer have to worry about an unwanted pregnancy… the baby is now on its way, it’s a done deal!
Many women actually feel quite horny as the hormones make some adjustments during pregnancy. We can also feel more of a need to connect with our partner as the birth gets closer. The need to share the experience with the one who helped create this new human can be intense.
As the pregnancy progresses, and her body changes you may need to adjust your positions to accommodate the belly, use this time to experiment with some new ones. Be gentle, take your time. Once the baby escapes it confides, your sex life will never be the same again!
There will be the occasional instance when your doctor may advise against sex or a specific action, always follow your doctors instructions. Once the water has broken sex is definitely a no no, as there is nothing to stop the baby getting an infection as the seal has broken.
There are many old wives tails about pregnancy, don’t take too much notice of these. If you doctor says its ok, and it feels ok, go for it. If you are past your due date there is a belief that a good orgasm or two can bring on labor… always worth a try if you are done with the whole pregnancy thing! At the very least these may be the last orgasms you have for a few weeks.
