Sex before childbirth

Sex before childbirth - can or should not?

Most of all, to beware of the expectant mother is recommended at the earliest stages of pregnancy, when there is a high risk of miscarriage. But in recent weeks, sex for a woman and does overlap taboo, including on the oral. 6 weeks before the expected date of birth, you need to exclude everything that can lead you to orgasm, for at the peak of pleasure the uterus comes into tonus, creating a threat of premature birth.

This point of view until recently adhered to the majority of Russian gynecologists. However, gradually they all began to change their position. The modern doctor not only does not prohibit, but also recommends you have sex in the last weeks of pregnancy.

Sex is useful before childbirth

Today the main theory about the harmfulness of sex in the last weeks before childbirth is disproved: it is proved that the uterine contractions caused by orgasm can not provoke the onset of the birth process if the time is not yet has come. At the same time, more and more talk about the benefits of sex before giving birth, not only for future mothers and fathers, but also for the future child.

First of all, it concerns, of course, the receipt of pleasant emotions and experiences, which is useful for all three. But a woman sometimes wins considerably more against the background of the rest: under the influence of sex hormones, the level of which increases by the end of the term, she experiences an increased attraction to the man and satisfaction with the process. In addition, during sexual intercourse, the utero-placental current stimulates, which is undoubtedly useful for the fetus. And in some countries the beginning of preparatory battles is used to use the last sexual intercourse in this pregnancy for the purpose of natural acceleration and alleviation of the whole process of childbirth. This provides lubrication (which helps to soften and smooth the cervix), sperm of a man, or rather contained in it prostaglandins (which accelerate the opening of the cervix) and endorphins (released during orgasm and acting as a mild analgesic).

But not always

However, it is not safe to indulge in love pleasures until the beginning of intensive battles in all cases. In the 21st century, this should not have been talked about, but it would not be superfluous to mention that sex before the birth, as at any other time, should and can only take place on the mutual desire of the partners. If a woman does not feel well, just does not want intimacy or God forbid experiencing pain and discomfort during sexual intercourse, it must be stopped immediately.

Sex is also contraindicated before childbirth, when the amniotic fluid has already passed away from the pregnant woman. If, during or after sex, bloody discharge from the vagina appeared, it is necessary to go urgently to the hospital.

In general, the intimacy between loving people should only bring positive emotions and results. Do not deny yourself this pleasure even on the last days of pregnancy, if you do not have any contraindications, the pregnancy was normal and without threats. But the utmost care to observe all the same will not hurt. Active love games and potentially dangerous poses save up to better times. Although with the delay of pregnancy, the first thing that you will recommend an obstetrician will be active sex.
