According to most women sex can be complicated and annoying when you are pregnant. It may be difficult and even painful to engage in intimacy with your partner at this time, leaving many pregnant women sexually frustrated. However, a vibrator is one solution to the problem of sex during pregnancy.

Pregnancy adds more intensity to a woman’s sex life. The increased flow of blood to the genitals and the breasts causes the expecting mother to be easily aroused and leads to major orgasms. But you still need to ensure your baby’s safety even when your hormones are sending you libido into overdrive.

 

Dr. Ingber, a Women’s Health Specialist told Cosmopolitan that the mechanical action of a vibrator or dildo is no different from the actions of a penis. In fact. the foreplay, sexual activity, and orgasms resulting from adult toys are all encouraged throughout pregnancy. He explained that the hormones released during orgasm especially oxytocin (or love hormone) triggers bonding, emotional thoughts, and maternal instincts. These feelings are essential in maintaining a healthy relationship both before and after delivery. Even if you do not have a partner during sex the oxytocin is still released and its effects are the same.

 

Risk Factors

A common misconception is that the contractions produced during orgasms may induce early labor. But Dr. Kyrin, a board-certified OB-GYN explains that the contractions. that happens during orgasms are benign and do not result in labor. You should, however, seek medical attention immediately if the contractions continue hours after masturbation.

 

The other risks apply to women with placenta previa and vasa previa. In placenta previa the insertion of any object inside the vagina including adult sex toys will cause bleeding, abruption and possibly miscarriage. In vasa previa the use of vibrators or dildos may dislodge the placenta and damage the blood vessels within the umbilical cord threatening the life of the baby and the mother.

 

Women who have been diagnosed with placental abnormalities should try and achieve orgasms without penetration. They can use a clitoral vibrator to masturbate and they will be fine.

 

Clean your vibrator

A dirty vibrator is a big health risk for pregnant women. If your vibrator carries bacteria and you use it, it can lead to vaginal infection and an overgrowth of bacteria that is linked to preterm labor.

 

It is important to note that UTIs are more common in pregnant women due to hormonal changes and increased pressure on the bladder by the uterus. This is why women who are found to have bacteria in their urine during screening are treated with antibiotics even if they are asymptomatic. To be safe wash all your sex toys thoroughly and pee after using your vibrator.
