Daily Health Tips: Is Sexual Intimacy During Pregnancy A Pre-Requisite For Safe Delivery?

Leave a comment


Q: Dr is it compulsory to have sex during pregnancy in order to have a safe delivery? Does every woman or lady have dry vagina during pregnancy which leads to painful sex? What is the cause?

A: Thanks for the question and since I’ve received a couple of this same type of question ever since we discussed sexual intercourse during pregnancy, it’s important to re-iterate the finer points of that discussion.

Sexual intercourse is generally considered safe during pregnancy unless there are reasons why your obstetrician has suggested against it. This, however, does not mean that sexual intercourse is a necessary condition for a baby to be delivered safely. No! One could very well be pregnant for nine months and deliver safely without having had even one episode of sexual intercourse during pregnancy. Think about all the split families you know (husband in one country and wife in another!)
