  • Call the doctor and get clarification as to exactly what you should do. Each pregnancy is different and you need the specifics of your situation. Usually abstaining from sex is not for the whole course of the pregnancy. If you are advised not to have sex find other creative outlets for pleasure.

  • They told me my placenta was low and that was at like 10weeks or so and now I'm almost 23weeks and its where it should be. They said it was where it should be when I was 19weeks pregnant. I was only told not to have sex because I had a hemmorhage too at 9weeks till 18weeks that went away. They said if my placenta stayed low till birth I'd have to have a c-section or d&c or other things
