  • Only if you encounter bleeding or cramping or have a history of miscarriages or an incompetent cervix is sex dangerous to a pregnancy, Sex actually is a good source of exercise and can help relieve stress.

  • Unless told otherwise by your doctor is it is safe to have sex during your entire pregnancy. If you are ever in doubt with stupid advice that morons will give you while pregnant (especially the wivestales which ARE NOT TRUE!) then ask your doctor.

  • Unless you are high risk, it's perfectly safe.

  • well first off how can you conceive if it is bad to ha sex? No it isn't true only if the doctor tells you not to have sex in the first trimester. And that is after you concieve. I had sex with my first pregnancy the whole time of my pregnancy from the time I got pregnant. With my second I did for the first couple times, but then I started spotting so the dr said to wait until after the first trimester to have sex so after the first trimester it was fine. This time around I am 23 weeks tomorrow and I have been having sex through this whole pregnancy as well

  • It will not cause a miscarriage. The baby is like the size of a pea and VERY well protected!

  • Ummmm It CAN cause a miscarriage. But that's only if you have had one already or are considered high risk. Anyone who wants to disagree can call my high risk OB/Gyn I will give you his number. :) MOST women can have sex throughout the pregnancy with no problems. I am not one of them. I was told to avoid sex or lose my baby. Not a hard choice.
