Pregnant and in the mood

Pregnancy affects everything in your body, so it’s not surprising that your sex life can be shaken up a bit.

Pregnancy affects everything in your body, so it’s not surprising that your sex life can be shaken up a bit. Some of the changes that pregnancy brings can be very sexy. Many women say it’s the first time in their lives that they have a full cleavage. And for some women the hormonal changes at different times may make them feel hornier than usual.

The opposite is also true, though. Some women find that their libidos are not fired up, especially in the first and third trimesters when pregnancy can make you particularly tired and emotional. When you are in the mood, take full advantage, although as your belly gets bigger you might have to experiment with different positions.

From a physical point of view, there’s nothing to fear from having sex when you’re pregnant – as long as you don’t have any complications and your pregnancy is normal. If you have any doubts, don’t be shy to ask your doctor directly if it’s fine to have sex. If you have a history of miscarriages or have had bleeding during the pregnancy, the doctor may advise you to try other means of pleasing each other – your hands and mouth aren’t pregnant!
