Making love during pregnancy is a great idea and benefit your relationship

Physical intimacy during pregnancy is believed to be taboo but let’s debunk that myth. Sex can be quite a mood booster for a healthy, happy glow. Making love while you await your little angel’s arrival will also benefit your relationship. We list nine reasons to continue having sex until you are ready to deliver (or your obstetrician says otherwise).

Happy Hormones: A surge in hormones helps fetal movement. An orgasm releases endorphins or happy hormones that make both you and your baby happier and more relaxed. It is also believed that pregnancy sex is more orgasmic due to the increased blood flow in the intimate areas. During pregnancy women experience an increase in sex drive that allows for an intense climax and more pleasurable sex.

A Sexy Pregnancy: The weight gain, the new-found curves and the bulked-up body could up your partner’s sex drive. He is sure to be more attracted than ever by the enlarged breasts and pregnancy glow. Make the most of the opportunity, we say.

Increases Immunity: Sexually active people have stronger immune systems and sex during pregnancy is believed to boost levels of Immunoglobulin A, an antibody that helps avoid colds and other infections.

Rest Assured: We all know that sex is a great stress reliever but sex during pregnancy plays a dual role. It helps the expecting mom relax while putting the baby to sleep with the rocking sensation of the act. 

Blood pressure: Pregnancy sex lowers blood pressure and thus saves the expecting mom from the risk of Preeclampsia, which is a complication linked to high blood pressure. 

Balancing Mood Swings: Oxytocin which is also known as the love hormone is released during the lovemaking act. This hormone helps reduce pain and increases tolerance levels to control erratic mood swings.

Recovery: Pregnancy sex is a good exercise to prepare the body for childbirth. An orgasm prepares the pelvic floor for birth and promotes faster recovery post delivery.

Creative instincts: This is when you can be most creative in the bedroom and all for a damn good reason! Try out different sex positions that will be comfortable for you and your partner without causing much strain on your belly.

The connect: Sex increases the emotional bonding between partners. It is no different for pregnancy sex that helps you connect better with your partner and understand each other.
