No Sex?

So I am almost 7 weeks preggo and I went to the doctor this week and he said that everything looked good. I asked him and he said that the heartbeat was good. He never said that anything was wrong or that there was any concerns at this point. But he said that he wanted me to come back in two weeks and we should not have sex until I come back. I have never heard that before. Is that normal or do you think there is a concern?

  • I have never heard that either. They usually tell you to do it b/c its healthy. I guess i would just listen to him and ask him why when you go back.

  • could be the baby is implanted low. that is fine but sex could cause bleeding. I had this as the pregnancy went on the placenta grew up so there was no problem if it grows down and covers the cervex then still ok but you have to have a c section.

  • I've never heard of only being 7 weeks along either and not being able to have sex.

  • Unless you have been having problems or had a hard time getting pregnant I have never heard of the doc telling someone to come back in 2 weeks if they were only 7 weeks pregnant. Appointments are usually every month until the 7th or 8th month. Sounds like he might have a concern based on this and the fact that he said no sex. I would find another doctor who will be honest and up front with you about everything. Seems like this doc wasn't.

  • Late post; but I wanted you to know that it is possible he might think you have placenta previa, but is still unsure and unable to clearly diagnose it; just wait it out and do as he asks, you don't want to risk anything :) GL!
