Pregnancy is a period a couple cherishes for their whole life, especially the first one.
After that, a couple’s life transforms into a new one, leaving the previous life behind.
However, some things about sex during and after pregnancy are unclear to people.
So, here are a few essential things that a couple needs to know about this subject :
1. The baby does not get hurt:
While having sex, couples think of new and innovative positions to make intercourse more enjoyable. While having sex, the baby rests safely in the amniotic sack, protected with flesh and fluids. Thus, the baby does not get harmed.
2. The male partner cannot bump the baby on her head:
No matter how long the penis is, the penis can’t bump into the baby. Therefore, it is unlikely to hit the baby even if they are resting in the pelvis.
3. The baby will not know about the act:
The baby can’t know or remember what happens outside. The activity, the baby, may prick a little bit after orgasm. Still, the baby can’t remember anything.
4. It does not transmit any STD to the baby:
Once the baby is inside, the cervix is shut and is out of reach for anything.
In addition, the mucus plug acts as a thick cork that does not let anything inside from the semen.
Thus, any infection cannot reach the baby. But, one crucial thing to remember is to proceed with your partner for sexual activity only when you are sure they are not infected.
5. Have fun with new positions:
For women with a baby bump becomes challenging to have sex with the same missionary pose.
Try something new and exciting to maintain enjoyment and safety.
