Sex During Pregnancy – How To Have An Enjoyable Experience
There are many exciting events that occur after a couple first finds out they are pregnant. The events that result after a pregnancy start with fertilization, where a tiny sperm penetrates an already mature egg. The fertilized egg (also known as a zygote) travels along the woman’s fallopian tubes to the uterus, where it eventually implants itself within the uterine lining.
This is accompanied by another set of chemical reactions that create the perfect environment for a developing baby. Other events that take place after fertilization include the release of the actual egg from the ovary and the welcoming of a newborn into this world.
Sex is thought to be perfectly safe throughout all stages of pregnancy. So what is a “normal” pregnancy? It is one that is deemed low-risk for possible complications like pre-term delivery or miscarriage. If you are unsure about whether or not you fit this category, speak to your physician, midwife, or other reputable pregnancy care provider, they can tell you how to keep your sex life healthy and your baby safe.
What exactly does it mean when they say “pregnancy”?
Generally speaking, pregnancy is defined as the full term of a woman’s pregnancy; that is, from conception (the conception stage) to full birth (the birth stage). Pregnancy most often occurs during the first trimester. On average, a woman can expect her baby to come up to 9 inches long by the time she gives birth.
Some women carry a slightly longer pregnancy than others, however, most will have no problems meeting the basic needs of their babies. A major event after pregnancy occurs at approximately forty weeks after conception. This is the first time that the baby is able to move.
The development of the human body continues during this period and the last menstrual period is not actually a pregnancy; it is officially referred to as the birth of a baby. This is also the time when the woman is considered to be full-term, meaning that her body has developed the capacity to sustain life until delivery.
After forty weeks, the chance of ectopic pregnancy decreases dramatically. This is because the fertilized egg has implanted itself into the wall of the uterus. This is referred to as an implantation site or implantation failure. If this occurs, the fallopian tubes will be cut and the pregnancy will be terminated. If an early pregnancy is suspected, it is important to speak with a physician for more information on the matter.
Sex during pregnancy is not something to be worried about, even if it seems “risky”
Your baby is doing just fine. To see how long you should wait before having intercourse, you’ll first have to take a look at your own labour and delivery experience. Some women have slow labours while others bring home the bacon as soon as they hit the hospital room. This is completely normal and there’s no need to panic or freak out.
The most common complication associated with pregnancy is the increased risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections. Many women who have been active sexually throughout their lives develop infections, especially gonorrhoea and Chlamydia.
These infections pose a serious risk to both mother and baby, so it’s important to avoid having intercourse while pregnant. Fortunately, there are some safe sex options to reduce your risk. One way to lessen the risk of getting STIs is by reducing your chances of coming in contact with an infected partner.

Two of the best positions for giving pleasure to your baby are the doggy-style and missionary position
The doggy-style positions are favoured by many women because they allow for deep penetration and greater enjoyment. However, doggy-style is also the best position for pregnant women. As your baby grows, try to angle your hips down towards your baby to make it easier to reach the clitoris.
You can also try performing the missionary position more slowly for a more pleasurable experience. Make sure that your baby is resting on your chest or your abdomen. Another position that is favored by many women during pregnancy is receiving oral sex from a man.
When performing oral sex on your partner, it’s important to keep your mouth open and be gently caressed around the vulva. Be sure not to insert your finger when your vagina lips are covering the clitoris because you don’t want to stimulate your baby while you’re having intercourse. Instead, gently blow air on your vagina to help dilate the vaginal canal.
Another common question from women who are going through the pains of pregnancy is how to feel about their cervix during intercourse. Reiki is a great way to relax. Reiki practitioners say that Reiki increases your energy flow which in turn improves your overall mood.
This may cause you to become a bit uncomfortable, but if you feel uncomfortable you can simply close your eyes and breathe deeply. Just remember that your cervix isn’t really hurting at all. Your most sensitive spots during pregnancy are your breasts, inner thighs, and your ovaries.
Breast milk production slows during preterm labour, so you’ll get little or no discharge at all. The vaginal lubrication you lose during preterm labour helps to prevent vaginal dryness. It also prevents you from having painful sex, since you’ll have more lubricant to work with during sexual intercourse.
