    I know that it's OK to have sex during pregnancy, but is it OK to do it without a condom? Will my boyfriend's semen harm my baby?

    EDIT: I hope I put this in the right section :\

    *sigh* if only this was true... :(

    Sex does more good than harm in pregnancy unless you have a history of bleeding, miscarriage or cervical problems. Obviously if your partner is at risk of sexually transmitted diseases, then of course you should still wear a condom. Pregnancy prevents pregnancy only... :rotfl:

    During sex orgasms will contract the uterus forcing blood into it, which in turn increases the food supply for the baby... Also the feel good hormones that are released during sex work well on the baby's mental development. In general your cervix should be sealed up like fort knox and your vaginal discharge changes in acidity in order to kill anything foreign.

    And well sadly, if you go in to third tri and ask how many of us have tried sex as a way to get things moving and it hasn't you'll find most of us have...
