lol probably a stupid question. orgasm related so def. tmi

Alright, well before I got could have very accurately labeled me as a "sexoholic" I just love sex...everything about it. Now that I'm pregnant, I never imagined my drive could increase but it has drastically. haha

My question is...
Will multiple orgasms/lots of sex/lots of masturbation (any of those) hurt the baby or cause an preterm labor or complications?

I'm 23 weeks by the way

  • Orgasm does cause the uterus to contract. If you start to have contractions after one then I would call the doctor. Usually it doesn't cause preterm but its not a common thing. Masturbation can only be a problem only if you get bacteria in your vagina and cause an infection.

  • It could because like annamcq18 said "orgasm does cause the uterus to contract" but I wouldnt owrry about and my SO never had a problem with it as a matter of fact I went for 41 weeks! Near the end we were trying to get the baby to come out and nothing (including sex) helped. So unless you feel contractions after I wouldnt even think twice!
