Is it okay to have sex after you lose your mucous plug?

I lost my mucous plug 3 days ago and am just wondering if it is still okay to have sex? Is there a higher chance of my water breaking? (I'm 39 weeks so i guess if it did it wouldn't be a huge deal). I just don't want to do something that could be harmful to our baby. This is our first baby so I'm not really sure...

  • I'm not sure but I would be worried about causing an infection. I would run it past your doc just to be safe. Your close enough to delivery that is may not be a problem! Congrats!

  • I'd just be worried about infection, if you do have sex maybe he could pull out so you don't risk getting fluids stuck somewhere.
