As long as you don’t have a medical condition that creates a high risk for miscarriage, preterm labor, or bleeding (confirm this with your care provider), you’re all clear to orgasm to your vagina’s content. Heck, you might even find yourself reveling in multiple orgasms, as they can be more intense and easier to come by during pregnancy.
Regarding the rush of blood, it could actually benefit baby, as it sends more oxygen to the uterus. And the uterine contractions that occur during orgasm are like a massage for baby, while the surge of oxytocin fills both of you with happy feels.
What to do
If your pregnancy is free of special circumstances, orgasm away. If you’re unsure whether you’re at risk for a circumstance that could be triggered by sex or orgasm, check in with your care provider before heading to Pleasure Town.
It’s also important to follow your instincts when it comes to sex and pleasuring yourself. If a position feels uncomfortable, move out of it, and if you’d prefer to skip penetration in favor of foreplay, speak up. And hey, girl, don’t forget to take advantage of your alone time.
