I'm currently 27weeks and I masturbate b/c my partner is out of the country. My question is, I've been doing it all along and nothing has really happened, but I always fear preterm labor...since the orgasm with masturbation is stronger than a regular orgasm could this start premature labor?...Doc hasn't had me abstain from sex and I haven't had any prior medical problems...Any advice would do! Thanksss!

  • No.
    Sperm is what causes the cervix to thin, and it won't do it unless the cervix has already started to itsself.

  • I don't think there would be anything wrong with it.... i did it a few times while I was pregnant and I was induced 3 days before i hit 40 weeks. LOL So i think you should be fine

  • Though orgasm can lead to starting contractions, so can just about anything physical, so don't worry! Avoid nipple stimulation, though, lol! That can be a troublemaker!

  • You should be fine. Do you have a history of preterm labor? Like mentioned above, sperm is what softens and preps your cervix. Orgasms can cause contractions, but most likely would stop and not start labor.
