Anyone else?

Anyone else get REALLY sore 'down there' when or after having sex towards the end of your pregnancy(s)? It hurts like -you know what- down there when we do it. Why would that be?

  • Everything is just more tender. Your whole body is in the process of changing.

  • Your cervix is more sensitive during pregnancy and especially towards the end stages when it starts to thin out. You can still do it, just ask your guy not to go so deep and to take it a little easy on you!

  • Even to the point of bleeding just a little?

  • Yes. That is your cervix. You need to take it a little easier and definitely tell him not to go as deep, or change your angle.

  • Sore enough so that we didn't do it? Yes. We had sex the day before my son was born, the first time in months, and haven't been able to successfully since (he's three months old). If you're willing to put up with some soreness, DO IT WHILE YOU CAN! :)
