Here are few pointers to keep in mind about sexual intercourse during pregnancy.

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Check haemorrhoid: A couple can enter into a sexual intercourse if none suffer from haemorrhoids as they may tend to be larger than usual during the pregnancy

No entering from posterior: Anal sex should be strictly avoided if the haemorrhoids are bleeding since the profuse discharge might lead to loss of blood, endangering the mother and the baby

Use contraception: Transfer from anal to vaginal sex should be done after sanitising and cleaning the contraception (condom), which reduces the chances of being infected from bacterial vaginitis.

Never force: If the mother does not please the idea of sex, it should not be forced upon

Avoid in case of complications: Sex during pregnancy should be avoided if the mother suffers from vaginal disorders like Placenta Previa, as it might harm the baby and the mother

Consult your doctor: Speak to your doctor in case of any concerns regarding sexual intercourse

It is important to have a prior knowledge before indulging into the act. This will help you and your baby to be fit and safe.
