Couples are concerned about whether or not to have sex when they are expecting. Some fear that the penis may negatively affect the unborn baby.

Isn’t this a valid point of concern? Pregnancy does not interfere with having sex since the penis does not enter the uterus, and the baby is always covered by amniotic fluid. If everything is going according to plan, you should be able to have sex. Pregnant women may even want more frequent sexual encounters than before.

The following are some of the advantages of having sex when pregnant:

  1. It lowers blood pressure

Sex indeed lowers blood pressure considerably.

  1. The orgasms become more enjoyable

There are two reasons for this: The flow of estrogen is more concentrated in your pelvis, and your whole body is more responsive to it. Orgasms will be much more exhilarating than usual due to the swelling of your nipples and clitoris.

  1. It will help you relax

Pregnancy is stressful, and your hormones may make you feel like you’re going crazy. Relaxation and a good night’s sleep may be achieved by engaging in sex. Because of the Oxytocin produced during sex, this occurs.

  1. Helps in labor preparation

Having sex may help your body prepare for labor if you are full-term or even over your due date. This is because the prostaglandins in semen induce the cervix to be ready.

  1. Pre-eclampsia is less likely to occur

According to researchers, sperm contains a protein that has been shown to modulate the immune system. Even though this hasn’t been verified, it’s very likely.

So, if you’re expecting and worried about having sex, now is the time to put your fears to rest. The more you let your body do what it wants, the better you’ll feel at the end of the day. Enjoy!
