EXPLAINED: Why Sex During Pregnancy Is Good For You

Share This

If you’re wondering if you should have sex while you’re pregnant, the answer is a resounding YES! You and your partner will be glad you did, and here are 9 important reasons why.

#1 You might experience really intense orgasms.

Oh, this reason alone is more than enough to make most women more than happy to make love while they’re pregnant. During pregnancy, blood flow to the genitals increases, making them more sensitive. Also, the body releases hormones galore, one of which is oxytocin – the love hormone. This fun hormone has the ability to make orgasms more intense.

#2 Having sex keeps you fit.

Whether you’re pregnant or not, having sex burns calories and gives the body a great workout. After all, one 30-minute sex session burns about 100 calories on average. However, when you’re pregnant and farther along, it can really help you stay in shape and get ready for the birthing process because of how creative you can be when it comes to positions.

Some of your favorite positions might not be comfortable anymore, but don’t let that discourage you from making love. Think outside the box and experiment. Who knows? You might just find a new position to add to your repertoire.

#3 It lowers blood pressure.

Research shows that making love lowers blood pressure. This is a huge benefit since high blood pressure during pregnancy can lead to a condition known as preeclampsia, which is very dangerous for both the mom and the baby.

#4 Having sex reduces pain. 

Doctors recommend that pregnant women abstain from taking any unnecessary medications. Even popping a couple of Advils for a headache can be dangerous for the baby.

The next time you feel a headache coming on, don’t turn your lover down with the old complaint, “Not tonight. I have a headache.”� No, instead, grab the bull by the horns, and rejoice in the pain-free pleasure the act provides. By the way, it’s believed that oxytocin is the hormone responsible for this wonderful benefit.

#5 Sex during pregnancy speeds up recovery after birth.

The orgasms you have with sex actually serve a purpose other than pleasuring you. They help prepare the pelvic muscles for childbirth. When your pelvic muscles are strong and fit, they heal faster after delivery.

One way to encourage strong pelvic floor muscles is to do Kegel exercises during sex. Not only will you strengthen your child birthing muscles, you’ll also increase sexual pleasure for both you and your partner.

Be prepared: In case you don’t know what Kegels are, here’s a quick rundown on how to do them:

– Imagine squeezing your partner’s penis with your vagina, and contract the muscles that stop the flow of urine.

– Hold it for a few seconds at a time, then release.

– Repeat, and experiment with different patterns of contracting and releasing.

If you do your Kegels right, your partner should notice a tightening around his penis. If you do this exercise at the right time, it will be quite pleasurable for both of you.
