Q: Is it safe to have sex during pregnancy?
A: Yes, it is safe to have sex during pregnancy unless you have a high risk pregnancy. If you have a high risk pregnancy, then you definitely need to talk with the doctor to see if it is safe to have sex. However, even with normal/healthy pregnancies, some people worry that the penis will bump or hit the baby. This will not happen! Remember, the baby is protected several ways. First, the baby is in a protected environment inside the amniotic sac and second, your cervix is blocked by a thick mucus plug that acts as a protective barrier. And don’t forget, you also have strong muscles of the uterus that also protect the baby. If you still have concerns, ask your doctor.
