You can have sex while you are pregnant as long as you are comfortable with it but if you don’t want to, that is normal.1

 

While you are pregnant you might feel erotic and wanting to have sex or far removed from it at all but don’t think that you can’t have sex because you are pregnant, it is probably good for you and it will not harm your baby.1,2

In fact, you might want to learn exactly about sex during pregnancy, from how it feels to how it affects the baby. Having sex during pregnancy induces calming hormones and increased cardiovascular blood flow and those benefits returns on your baby.1

It is okay to have sex but always consult your doctor if he have specific reasons for you not to have intercourse.1
