Anyone else have this problem during pregnancy? adult content

Every time my DH and i have sex, i get really bad cramps. It happened all throughout my firtst pregnancy as well. I am currently about 26 weeks pregnant. They start relatively early in the process and continue to hurt for about at least a half hour to an hour or so after. Even if i take a warm shower or anything it doesnt seem to help. The doc never gave me a direct answer when i asked about it. Any body have a similar problem to this or know of anyything that may help them stop sooner if not stop happening altoghter? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Its not causing like contractions or bleeding or anything to make me think it could be hurting baby at all, it just hurts and i'd rather be able to have that time with my DH be pleasant (as would we all... lol)

  • Thats why woman dont have sex when they are pregnant. It ends up hurting and not as great. If the pain is to much stop having sex and make a doctors appointment to make sure everything is fine:)

  • Why women DON"T have sex while pregnant?? WTH? I've been pregnant 4x and plenty of sex each time. I would sometimes get the cramps you're talking about and my Dr. was never really worried about it. Talk to your Dr. anyway, to be sure there are no issues. I will say that even with the cramps.....I never stopped having sex

  • Try different positions, and shallower penetration to see if that helps. Also, Try putting a pillow underneath you to take some pressure off your pelvis.

  • to KIMEDBS: ya we have tried different postiions and tried putting support on me and taking things a lot slower and it still hurts all the same. in the long run the going slow hurts even more actually.
