Intercourse during pregnancy is the act of having private part , oral, or anal coupling while a partner is pregnant. Both pregnant people and their partners often have questions about coitus during pregnancy. Should you have lovemaking while you’re pregnant? Is it safe? Can the baby feel it? Are there times when you shouldn’t do it? Will erotic desire change during pregnancy?

Erotic activity won’t affect your baby, as long as you don’t have complications such as preterm labor or placenta problems. However, here is why coupling is good for pregnant women.

Having an orgasm causes your pelvic muscles to contract, which can strengthen them. This helps to ease labor pains, improves bladder control, and potentially leads to a quicker recovery after giving birth.
