Can I have sex while I'm pregnant?

Yes you can! If you have a normal pregnancy, you can keep doing it right up until your waters break.

If you feel like having sex, go ahead. Having happy sex during your pregnancy is good for you and your partner.

You might worry that sex might make you miscarry your baby. But for most couples there is no danger. If you have had bleeding in this pregnancy, or previous miscarriages, you may want to avoid sex for the first 3 months of pregnancy.

To help prevent any infections, it is best if your partner wears a condom. This way you will be able to stay healthy. If you do get an infection - go to the clinic. They will be able to treat you.

Having sex won't make you go into labour early, but it can help get labour going if you are overdue.
