Is it safe to have unprotected sex if I lost my mucous plug? Or is it not safe for the baby?

**andrea - as long as you as not bleeding, you shouldn't need to contact your DR. Although you may want to incase you are dialating so early - however, your mucus plug regenerates and if you lose it early your body will build a new one.

Also I've never heard it was dangerous to have sex after losing your plug.

just curious but how far along are you? from what i've seen in your other posts i thought you were about the same as me, around 33 or 34 weeks? i'm just wondering to other people isnt losing your mucous plug a sign you will be going into labor soon?

i lost my plugs both times a week before my due date. so if you're still one month away, check w/your doctor first. b/c the pitocin in sperm will help soften your cervix and bring on labor.

sometimes. my first it was like a week before my second it was 2 weeks before. All seems to depend on how/when you start dialating.

I'd ask the Dr. I personally didn't think you could once you lost that plug as it was the thing that stops infection. And your cervix is probably already softening if you have lost it. So take it easy considering how long you have left.

YES have sex have looooooots of sex. my midwife said it helps soften the cervics! It also help stretch then vaginal walls which helps with stretching for delivery! I say go at it and have fun! Be glad you want sex lol!
