The doctor informed me with full placenta previa you are not allowed to have any type of orgasm because it may cause contraction that includes masturbation I have not been able to get off for almost 2 months now it is painful but apparently the contractions can cause bleeding because every time you orgasm your uterus will contract
WOw some people are super judgmental on here! Just because your sex life might not be as active, doesn't mean her question was immature or selfish. Wow. I have the same condition and I have gone without sex for 3 weeks now. I'm 15 weeks pregnant and just not experiencing the really horny stage of pregnancy. It's terrible! I've never felt so sexually frustrated. And I wouldn't want my husband to go through this feeling just because I am, so why not help a guy out? Maybe anal isn't the safest, but it was a legitimate question! Damn! Also, I get that when the baby comes you will be more busy, but there is always nap time. You don't have to let your sex life dwindle!!!!!! AH!
Dyanna, when i was 20 weeks pregnant they found that my placenta was low, and said no sex until my next ultrasound 6 weeks later, but when i asked about anal sex the doctor said it was OK, they only want you not to have anything inserted into your vagina.
Make sure you use plenty of water based lube and that you're as clean and comfortable as possible about it, but other than that, it's fine!
So good luck, and always try to ask your doctor everything before you try it, they've heard it all so don't be embarrassed!
No, anal sex is not safe when you have placenta previa. As the posters mentioned above there are other ways to please your husband. It is sweet of you to care about his sexual needs but what is he doing to care for the safety of your unborn child? We all have to make sacrafices and now is the time for him to make his.
yes thats what i meant, expecially having so much sex daily, even without issues when you're pregnant its too much, well for me it would be.
I personally wouldn't risk it, anal is sex is still sex and your doc did say no sex. There are other ways you can please you man if you want to keep him satisfied. I know it is going to be hard to not have sex throughout the rest of this pregnancy but get used to it hunny, your sex life will never be what it was before you had kids....at least not for a while.
Newmommy2be-sex is completely fine during pregnancy unless there are complications. I think you maybe meant sex isn't safe in her condition.
honey how far are you? once you're further along u wont want a lot of sex. 2-4 times a day! when you're pregnant is not good to begin with! that is a lot of pressure on you and your body, i guess if its not in your vagina its okay! but i wouldnt be so obsessed with sex, expecially that you have a new one coming along, you should only be worried about the babies saftey, and if its no sex you shouldnt even be asking a question, its just no sex, u could do other stuff besides sex, but i mean not to be rude, but its kind of immature, but i hope u are alright just rest! and do other stuff beside sex, and having sex is not good at all when you're pregnant, stand up to ur husband
I do believe that anal sex is included in the no sex, it is too close to do anything when you have previa; there are other methods for him to feel pleasure.
Dyanna, you need to ask your doctor. I know it's embarrassing, but if they said no sex, no orgasm, it's hard to believe it would be okay to have the very vigorous action of anal sex. Call you OB, and ask to speak to his nurse on the phone, and just ask.
This is one of those times where your husband is going to have to put his needs second, and his family first. There are things he can do to get through this time without endangering your pregnancy and your baby's life.
congrats on your pregnancy. you and your husband have decades of sacrifice to look forward to. this is just one way. pelvic rest means just that. i think it is very foolish of you and VERY selfish of him to take these risks. no sex means no sex, doesn't matter which hole you use. if you truly feel an obligation to please him, there are ways that do not require you to risk your health and the health of your unborn child. although honestly, if it were me, i'd hand him a papertowel and some lotion. hopefully, he'll understand why you cannot do these things for a while.
i wouldnt risk it. you said you dont get off anyways so let him use his hand. you can always call your doctor and ask
