is sex safe during pregnancy?

Some women refrain from sex during their pregnancy, worried it will affect their infants.

Touch, 24, a housewife who is currently eight months pregnant said, “My husband and I haven’t had sex since I was four or five months pregnant because I’m afraid it will hurt the baby.”

“Some people tell me that is irrational, and it doesn’t affect the baby. But I still want to be careful and cautious while I’m pregnant,” she added. “Even so, I’ve never asked the doctor about this issue.”

Touch and her husband have been married nearly a year and this is their first baby so it’s normal for her to have concerns over her baby.

Pregnancy generally lasts nine months and if a husband and wife refrain from intercourse for that long, it can put a strain on their relationship.

In search of certainty, Touch wants to know, “Is sex safe during pregnancy? Does it affect the baby?”
