Do you think it would be ok if I have sex, Or should I wait like I was planning?

Im about 8 weeks pregnant and I am spotting. I went to the doctor today and he say that my HcG level is 5379 and my cervix is closed tight I also had an ultra sound and the baby is in there. I was thinkin that I shouldnt have sex but my doctor didnt tell me not too.

  • It's probably OK, just don't over do it... but if you're really concerned about it, you probably won't enjoy the sex. Maybe it would be a good time to give your DH that BJ he's been wanting. :)

  • Why would you ask people who do not know your medical condition and are not doctors? I have several posts today like this. CALL your doctor's office.

  • I was spotting around that time to. I called my dr and they told me not to have sex for a few days and to take it easy. They said to sit down and put your feet up and relax for a couple of days. But if I was you, I would probably call your dr to make sure everything is still okay. Hope it helped.

  • I was told NOT TO HAVE SEX until the first trimester was over. Then after that I was told not to have sex until after I gave birth. There is a substance in sperm that can cause you to have a miscarriage. If you already have spotting I wouldn't chance it. Consult your OB/Gyn and see what is recommended for you. My OB/Gyn is a high risk specialist.
