We are not saying that nothing will change in your intimate life. Some changes may be required to accommodate the changes in your body that inevitably come with pregnancy. You may want less or more sex, and habitual positions may work in the first trimester and not at all in the second. The partner must go towards his pregnant girlfriend and do what she asks.

Do not self-medicate! In our articles, we collect the latest scientific data and the opinions of authoritative health experts. But remember: only a doctor can diagnose and prescribe treatment.

A few simple tips:


  1. Use a water-based lubricant to reduce irritation and ensure a comfortable entry.
  2. You can use pillows or rolled up towels, putting them where you want.
  3. It is better to refrain from harsh and rough experiments, even if you are used to them and you like them. Excessive vigorous activity can cause bleeding.
  4. If you have been advised to have sexual rest, this usually means giving up orgasm completely, but you can check with your doctor if all sex is prohibited or if you can have anal, oral or manual sex.
  5. Always voice your needs to your partner: he still can’t read your mind.

First trimester

During the first trimester, it’s normal for you to get used to the idea that a new person is growing inside you. Don’t be afraid, you won’t hurt the baby if you have sex.



Missionary position

You won’t be able to practice this pose for very long, so take a chance. Believe me, you still have time to miss her. But listen to how you feel during this position. Some women vomit on their back, so it is important to stop in time.



The standing position is also not excluded from the menu during the first trimester. It’s important to stick to something. Lean against a wall or other strong support, and ask your partner to support you by the waist while he enters from behind. To stimulate the clitoris, ask your partner to caress you from the front with one hand or press a vibrator against you.


Second trimester

In the second trimester, you feel much better, you no longer feel sick, and, in general, you seem to be ready for exploits. It is not recommended to lie on your back after the 16th week of pregnancy due to the weight of the uterus. But you can have sex in the position on the side, on top or behind.

“Doggy Style”


Yes, the perfect position for the second trimester. It is not only comfortable, but also relieves pressure from the uterus. In addition, many women feel that they are much more pleasant in this position than in any other.


Yes, you can have sex in the position of the classic “spoons” or slightly improve it so that the “small” spoon seems to be slightly lying on the “big one”.

Any position that takes the load off your back is fine: doggy, side, top… Don’t forget the vulva massage.

Don’t rush inside

You can try the practice of sensitive touch if you don’t particularly feel like penetrative sex in the third trimester. The idea is to touch each other and focus on the sensations as much as possible. Listen to yourself.

Another option for non-penetrative sex is to replace penetration with other sexual activities: perineum massage, kissing, rubbing, mutual masturbation and, of course, oral sex.
