If sex when pregnant hurts, don't do it. Your husband will understand and my guess is he won't want to hurt you. He can always go it alone for a little while.

I think if having sex when pregnant hurts you should really stop. I am in 36 weeks and we do it on the side no pain at all. you should try it it might help

Mary- Yes its called leukorrhea. If you feel totally grossed out about going natural, get your boyfriend to shave it for you. It's very kinky and definitely a way for him to feel a part of the pregnancy...I mean REALLY a part of it. Mine does it for me. Maybe TMI but that's what a lot of women do. As far as it being rude, no, many women don't shave, just keep it trimmed. The doctor doesnt care, really. They just want to deliver your baby. And if so, who cares? Its your vag.....groom it how you like.

Jennifer-As far as doggystyle not working, and still hurting, i agree with others...If it hurts to have sex when pregnant--dont do it. At all. You could end up hurting yourself even more and end up on bed rest til you deliver or come up with more complications. Like Mary said, try oral for a while (clean oral--many diseases/illnesses/spreading of viruses actually form and happen during oral believe it or not). But leave actual penetration sex alone....he'll understand. If not, dump him (: good luck!

I haven't had many problems where sex is concerned by I'm also expecting a baby that's under the10th percentile in weight. [Really small] I'm just assuming that your baby has the general idea that he/she is having his/her space invaded and tries to move away from the source of annoyance. Some babies are just really sensitive to things like that. If it hurts THAT badly ask your significant other if you can compromise. There's a million things you can do without having sex when pregnant. =P Good luck!!

I have to say that it only hurts a little if we shift and it moves us into a deep penetration. However, my sex drive is way through the roof. If you are getting really close to delivery then the baby settles lower and that can be very uncomfortable for you. Try oral or try manual manipulation on him if not on you. If it doesn't hurt to have an orgasm then try working with each other to that end without the penetration, or see if it doesn't hurt once you get really close to orgasm for him to penetrate so it's much less time with him inside of you. Just some ideas.

If it's hurting you to have sex in any position then just wait until after the baby is born. Your baby could be wanting to meet his/her parents in a week or two and is getting into position. Tell your partner/husband that it hurts and that your uncomfortable right now and to be patient until the baby comes. Good Luck to you

37 weeks...Huh

i think you must take a break from sexual activities. There are more chances that you may land up in labour.

If it hurts, just stop the sex and enjoy the foreplay. Anything entering deep inside you can stimulate your uterus to start a delivery process.

You shouldn't have sex when pregnant if it hurts, it's supposed to be enjoyable. Maybe you both could enjoy mutual oral or other things for a while. Or (maybe this sounds weird) but do that for a while and then he can "finish" with sex so that you can both get off but that way the penetration sex doesn't last that long. Does that make sense?



I used to feel a little freaked out because the baby would move a lot after sex and my abdomen would feel all hard! I heard if you're low risk it's not bad for the baby though.



On another topic... uh, I haven't exactly "groomed" my nether regions in a while because I can't see down there anymore!!!!! I'm a child of the eighties and this is very weird to me. Is anyone else having issues coming to terms with "au natural?" Is it rude not to "trim/shave" before seeing the doctor? Do you think my boyfriend is cringing about it? This has been the longest sex hiatus we've had. I also think he's freaked out by the leukorhea (is that what it's called?)



On the other hand he totally is in LOVE with my "pregnancy chub" (as he so kindly puts it) Gosh! Sex when pregnant is the most complicated thing ever.

Good Luck. I could never understand why during the last month of pregnancy my partner felt the incredible urge to "love me". I suppose it is his anticipating weeks without it after the baby is born. lol. Generally I have found doggy style to help relieve the discomfort.

i agree with Lynsey, if you do it doggy with your head down it will shift the pressure off of the region
