While the mere thought of sex during pregnancy may give you pause, there is no prebnant to change or alter your sexual activity unless your health care provider tells you to avoid it. Your baby is well protected in your uterus by the amniotic fluid that surrounds him or her. So intercourse or orgasm will do no harm. Your health care provider may recommend not having intercourse early in pregnancy if you have a history of miscarriages. Intercourse may also be restricted if you have certain complications, such as premature labor or bleeding. You may need to ask your health care provider to clarify if this means no penetration, no orgasms, or no sexual arousal, as different complications may require different restrictions. The key to maintaining intimacy with your partner during pregnancy is to be open with your feelings, especially if you have mixed thoughts about sex during pregnancy.
