  • That just sounds dumb... I don't know for sure though but I'm going to guess that it's a stupid myth.

  • Nope, who ever thinks that is an idiot. Maybe a little harsh but I can't help it.

  • I'd say that it's untrue. I can see that your muscles wouldn't stay as conditioned so make sure to do your kegel exercises, and talk to your Dr. about how and when to start perineal massages.

  • Totally UN -true. I was not allowed to have sex from the time I got a positive test result to my six week follow up from delivery. (I am high risk) Had three vaginal births and one emergency c-section. I don't know who is saying that, but they are so wrong.

  • Its not true at all. Yes, your cervix will be a little softer if you have been having sex so without having sex it might be a bit harder but you will still be able to go naturally
