When you’re pregnant, your emotions might take a toll on your sex drive. At first, hormonal fluctuations, fatigue and nausea might zap your sexual desire. As your pregnancy progresses, weight gain, back pain and other symptoms might further dampen your enthusiasm for sex.
But if your husband and you are in the mood, by all means – get it on.
Clinicians say that as long as your pregnancy is proceeding normally, you can have sex as often as you like.
Here are 3 reasons why you should have sex when pregnant:
Physical and emotional bonding between you and your partner
This is important, as you are about to embark on a new journey together as parents. The closer you are the easier it will be.
Preparation of the pelvic muscles for childbirth
Sex will help to keep your pelvic muscles toned and strong for the extreme physical experience ahead.
Being pregnant is a new experience and there’s no reason why it can’t be a new sensual experience too.
