Can sex harm my baby?
Some mothers worry that sex may harm their baby. Or is it just all in their heads?
This mom worries that having sex may harm her unborn child. She vents her worries to our expert.Will it endanger my baby?
I had a threatened miscarriage round about a month and a half ago. My doctor advised we should refrain from intercourse until 12 weeks, because your first 12 weeks are critical. When will it be okay to have intercourse again?
Midwife and premature baby nurse, Welma, gives her advice on the matter.
If your doctor suggested 12 weeks, then at least stick to 12 weeks, however, if you can make it a bit longer it will always contribute.
When having intercourse, just check for bleeding afterwards and if it happens refrain for at least one more month. Always consult your doctor for advice if you're not entirely sure or comfortable.
