People have been locked-in, life has slowed down. There has been time to plan and think about having a baby. If you've become a part of the lockdown baby boom, there are some things you may want to consider about your sex life during pregnancy.

Increased Sex Drive

During pregnancy, your blood volume increases by as much as 40 percent. That not only increases the size of your breasts, but it also heightens sensitivity throughout all your erogenous zones. That can mean more intense, even multiple orgasms. You'll probably find that your sex drive fluctuates throughout pregnancy, mostly in the beginning when you're tired and nauseated. Many women find that Sexual Enhancers can help get them the mood.

You’ll likely start to notice a build up in your sex drive during the second trimester when high levels of hormones can send your libido through the stratosphere, and tapering off as your pending bundle of joy is due to arrive and you feel achy, swollen and maybe even nervous about impending parenthood. Some expecting mothers find their sex drive remains intensified right through to the delivery date and believe it or not, some doctors will tell you that having sex just before childbirth can actually help speed things along!

Is it safe to have sex during pregnancy?

You’ll be happy to know that sex is not only safe during pregnancy, it’s also good for you. Women who have orgasms during pregnancy benefit from calming hormones and increased cardiovascular blood flow, and those benefits get passed down to your baby. Your growing baby is protected by the amniotic fluid in your uterus as well as the strong muscles of the uterus itself. Sexual activity won't affect your baby as long as you don't have complications such as preterm labour or placenta problems.

What sex positions are recommended?

When is comes to choosing sex positions, make sure you choose positions that keep you off your back, this helps with avoiding potential blood flow compression which can cause light-headedness. Also choose positions that keep the weight off the belly, this will not only be more comfortable for you and your partner, but baby too. Think of pregnancy sex as a time to experiment. Let’s talk about some positions that you many not have tried but are ideal for safe and comfortable pregnancy sex.

  • Side-by-side on an angle: You both lay on your sides with your bodies creating a ‘V’ shape. Push a pillow for support as you face your partner and rest both legs over his hip. This position allows him to keep his weight off of your belly.
  • You on top: Straddle your partner as he lays on his back. This enables you to control the depth of penetration and he can help support your growing bump. 
  • From behind: While up on all fours, this position keeps pressure off your belly.
  • Edge of the bed/seated: This position is pretty much self explanatory, you lay across the bed or sit on a sturdy chair with your legs  dangling off the edge while your partner penetrates while either standing up or on his knees on the floor, depending on the height of your bed. In this position your partner can go to town with Toys, fingers and their mouth. 
  • Anal sex: Having anal sex is completely safe during pregnancy and can be preformed while in any of the mentioned above positions. Make sure you use plenty of quality Lubricant.

    Are sex toys safe during pregnancy?

    It is completely safe to use Sex Toys while pregnant. If you have a history of miscarriage or other high risk problems, your doctor would have probably told you to avoid sex for the first trimester of pregnancy. But if you have an otherwise healthy pregnancy, there is no reason why you cannot use sex toys. You may actually find that you have stronger or multiple orgasms while you are pregnant thanks to the increased blood flow to the pelvic area, so make the most of it while you can! While pregnant, you're likely to feel sensation more intensely, so you might need to try a different toy or a Smaller Toy, or to use it in a new and different way. A Vibrator is harder and more rigid than a penis is, and your cervix is more fragile during pregnancy, so start slow and steady and avoid going too deep or thrusting too hard. Bullets & eggs will certainly be her best friend during pregnancy.

    Sex toy hygiene is crucial

    Because you are more prone to thrush while pregnant, make sure you put cleanliness first. Thoroughly cleaning your toy after each use is paramount. Wash it in warm, soapy water and then use a good quality Sex Toy Cleaner. Our Jo Organic Naturalove Toy Cleaner is ideal for cleaning sex toys for pregnancy use. Be sure to empty your bladder after you have any form of sex while pregnant, even if you just use Sex Toys. You are more prone to bladder infections during pregnancy so it's important to reduce your risk of bacteria entering the urinary tract. In some cases, urinary tract infections during pregnancy can result in early labour.

    Intimacy without intercourse

    If you are feeling too uncomfortable for sexual penetration or your doctor has instructed you to avoid sex due to a medical issue, there’s plenty of other options for you and your partner to stay physically connected. Intimacy doesn’t always involve penetration. It can include hugging, kissing, mutual masturbation and the use of non penetrative sex toys. Stimulators are ideal for non penetrative sex and offer mind blowing orgasms. Finger Vibrators are another excellent option for minimal penetration but maximum pleasure. The Charged FingO Finger Vibrator  turns your finger (or your partner’s) into your new favourite sex toy. 

    Pregnancy is a time, more than in any other stage of the relationship, where couples need to stay emotionally and physically connected and support each other. It is especially important now with the unpredictable circumstances we find ourselves in.
