  • Supposedly the chemical composition of sperm helps to soften the cervix. I have no actual factual resources to site here, but that is what I happen to have heard. However, yes, it can be very uncomfortable to have sex at any point of your pregnancy. It only gets worse the further you get, the larger you get, and the more frustrated you get.

  • Even if youre not into it....the sperm does help ripen the cervix and if you ARE into it, the muscle contractions from the orgasm can help stimulate labor. At the end of my pregnancies, I would ALWAYS start contracting after sex. They called it uterine irritation. With my second pregnancy, they went ahead and induced me because I was contracting. Hope that helps.
