Is it true that too much stimulation can cause you to go into labor early?

  • an orgasm (as well as a lot of activity) causes your muscles to contract so it can feel like you are having contractions and if your body does not naturally stop them it can lead to trouble. something in the sperm has also been linked to starting labor at times although im not sure that its medically proven. i know many women have sex when they are trying to induce labor.

  • Theres a chemical in semen that causes contractions also if you have an extreme orgasm the contracting of ur muscles can cause contracting of your uterus and ur body may not stop it

  • Yes. And because it can cause pre-term labor it can also cause miscarriage in the first trimester. Under the right conditions of course. Most women are good to have sex in early pregnancy.

  • Yes, for those at-risk for PTL. Most of us aren't though.

  • I'm already in my 2nd trimester. My last pregnancy was pre-term 32 weeks. Waiting to see if doc wants to put me on meds to avoid it this time.
