  • Yes it is a-okay to have sex when pregnant. Unless of course you have been instructed by your doctor not to due to heath concerns/a difficult or high risk pregnancy.

  • Yes it's perfectly safe, unless the Doctor tells you otherwise. Sex is actually recommended alot of times at the end of your pregnancy to help get your cervix ready for labor.

  • Yes you can as long as you are not high risk, on pelvic rest etc...It is safe.. If your friends have any questions their OB will be the best person to reassure them.

  • It is completely safe unless you have some serious condition. Your baby is locked safely out of reach. :)

  • their right its safe.. unless the doctor said not to . I on the other hand was high risk and it was very unsafe for me. But i only know that because the doctor told me what was happening to me. I would get blood clots and for some reason blood clots around the placenta can cause it to become weak and detach. This can cause you to have a miscarriage. So for your safety it would be the BEST idea for you to discuss any of your pregnancy concerns with your Ob/Gyn.. Good luck hun :)
