Sex and Pregnancy


Dr. McGuire

Many people worry that sexual relations during pregnancy could be dangerous. However, there are very few instances when sex can cause harm, and your provider should tell you if these situations apply to you. One general rule is that you should not have intercourse if your partner is experiencing any vaginal bleeding. If this is the case, check with your healthcare team before resuming sexual activity.

Intimacy during pregnancy is a way of maintaining your close bond. Be creative in your expressions of love, and remember to talk with your partner and express your feelings and needs.
