    Default Intercourse during pregnancy?

    Hi y'all

    Just wanted to know if it's safe to have sex during early pregnancy? A lot of the sites say speak to your doctor to see if it's a no go zone. I'm almost 5 weeks and my appoint isn't until next Thursday! Who usually has intercourse during early preg? Any symptoms after? When should one worry?

    Thanks

    As far as I've always been told its fine. I've had s.ex throughout pregnancy each time with no problems. Especially early in pregnancy as I didn't know I was. Go for it!

    I know sex was a no go zone for my mother during her pregnancies because she had suffered many miscarriages and was at an increased risk.

    But for me it has never been a problem, I didn't go ah 'hard out' during pregnancy though lol...

    I've been told by my OB that sex is a no-no. I'm on "pelvic rest" due to a hematoma in my uterus. If u have a normal, low risk pregnancy, it should be fine.

    Zeddy, the only time it *may* be a problem (especially in the first trimester) is if you have had a previous history of miscarriage.

    If you can't wait until your 6 week check up, then just go steady/gently, no acrobatics etc!

    Here's what my FS said in an email after transfer of my embryo (which stuck!) after I asked her if it was ok to have sex:

    Good to hear you are feeling ok. Cramping is common because of all the progesterone on board (as is constipation and bloating). The when to have sex issue is a common one. There is no literature on this but after implantation (which would have happened by now) makes no difference. However, many couples wait till the pregnancy test so they are not saying "what if". I have no strong feelings either way, depends on how you are feeling really as I consider all normal daily activites are Ok. No extreme sports is about my only limit.

    The only reason I didn't have sex at the start was because like everything else it would make me vomit. Lol but as soon as my ms settled I was right back on it.. There are loads of studies saying (as long as ur a low risk) having sex will help you vajayjay go back to normal a little quicker because of all the pelvic exercise...
    The only problem I have now is positions because of my belly... But it makes it more interesting finding different ones.
    Good luck and have fun
