  • Yes should not be having rough sex while preg, could hurt the baby... its ok to have sex but dont not rough, you can ask your ob/gyn and they will tell you the same thing cause thats what they told me!

  • If it hurts, then stop and try another position or something a little gentler. Baby is very well cushioned and protected, it's unlikely you could hurt your baby, but if it's hurting it could be doing some damage to YOU, like bumping your cervix (which probably won't cause too many problems other than spotting, but can definately hurt).

    As long as it doesn't hurt (in a bad way) then rough sex can actually be a very good perineal massage.

  • I'm with Ati...if it's uncomfortable you should ease up a little. And baby is well cushioned. My doc told me to go on with sex as normal unless it becomes uncomfortable then I needed to be more gentle.

  • If its hurting you, you need to stop doing it. Find a way to make it more comfortable for you. DH and I usually do too, but it hurts to much during pregnancy.
