- Can sexual relations continue from the first months of pregnancy? When do I have to stop to avoid affecting the fetus?Answer:
Sexual intercourse can continue during pregnancy, only three things must be considered:
1) Sperm contains a stimulating factor for the uterus of certain women, so if you feel contractions after sexual contact it is good that at the following sexual contacts ask your partner to use a condom.
2) In the second trimester the fetus grows much and passes from the pelvis to the abdomen. Therefore it is good not to use the "classic" position, so that the weight of the partner does not press on the abdomen.
3) It is wiser to avoid sexual contact in the 3rd trimester of pregnancy.
