    Hi, :oops:

    Is a bit of an embarrassing question but I was wondering if anyone has any info. on how safe it is to have sex in the first weeks of pregnancy.

    I must admit, I have never bothered about it before but am extremely nervous about this pregnancy having previously m/c.

    My poor DH didn't get it much in 1st tri due to me suffering from m/s in the evening and going to bed really early but i am hoping that during 2nd tri when i start to feel a bit better things will improve.

    Feel so sorry for my DH!

    We have sex as much as before (2-4 times a week). I think this is because I want things to stay as 'normal' as possible. Plus, with DS, I was single from 3 months, so the specialness of sex when I am pg, is still a novelty for me lol

    :rotfl: I'm exactly the same. Sometimes I think I'm even more horny than my OH cos he sometimes looks scared when we've had a good session and an hour later I want more! :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks for all your replies. I think I'll wait until I'm 7 weeks and then take the plunge. We did through my other pregnancies and it was absolutely fine (it did bring on a few contractions from about 38 weeks in preg no. 2 though; when I was very late with my first the m/w advised it for inducing labour although it never worked!!)

    I'm just much more nervous this time around!

    Thanks again :)

    It's safe to have sex in pregnancy but it's recommended that you don't have sex in the first tri if you have experienced any bleeding/spotting.

    It's understandable that you are more cautious this pregnancy.

    We've had sex once and had to stop because of the pain. :oops: The doctor advised me not to have sex until the 2nd trimester just to be sure everything was settled, but I'd been getting severe cramps anyway.
    Something to do with the contractions and the semen containing prostaglandin or something like that which can cause cramps...sounds complicated and I'm probably one of the few as its different with everyone but certainly don't go at it hard and heavy early on ! :wink:
