  • Yes unless your doc says otherwise. Sex during pregnancy will actually make labor easier and progress faster once it's time.

  • You can have sex until your water breaks or contractions start.

  • Sex makes your labor easier??? Did some guy tell you that? I bet....hehe. My 2nd baby was born after a very very short labor ( got to the hospital at 8:15 pm and she was born at 9:25 pm)and my DH was in Thailand when I was pregnant.....had no sex for months....LOL. I bet a bunch of men got together and made that up!!!

  • No, gertie41, it's true. Sex does help when it comes to labor and delivery. Semen helps to soften the cervix, and orgasm will sometimes give you contractions. Plus, it's also scientificly proven that sex is a great mood lifter and it keeps your heart healthy.

  • It's usually fine throughout pregnancy unless you have a condition where your provider tells you not to.
