Lovemaking Positions and Pregnancy

During pregnancy, your relationship changes and grows in new ways. Your sexual relationship is no exception. Just as your relationship is a combination of your varied outlooks and ideas, your sexual relationship is also made up of a similar combination of views and beliefs. Some women complain of lower abdominal cramping and backache after orgasm during the first and third trimesters.

Keep an open mind about sex during pregnancy. The important thing is that you are comfortable and feel free to stop lovemaking if there is a problem. Be creative! There are a variety of positions and depending on what stage a woman is in her pregnancy, she may find some more comfortable. Look for positions that are both comfortable for you and enjoyable for both of you. 

Remember, when you are giving and receiving pleasure without intercourse, orgasm is not the only goal. Nurturing your relationship is the real target.

Will a man's sexual interest change during pregnancy?

Men's sexual interest sometimes changes a lot, and sometimes not at all.

  • Some men continue to see their partners as sexy and attractive all the way through pregnancy, regardless of their body size.
  • Others are even more attracted to their partners. This can be related to their new curviness, or related to becoming a dad, or for reasons that are particular to themselves. 
  • However, some men lose sexual interest in their partners during pregnancy. Many do not want to talk about this. For some women this is acceptable, because their interest is low, too. For others, this lack of sexual interest from their partners is difficult to handle. If you find this happening to you, talk to your doctor, midwife or caregiver. All are experienced in handling this type of pressure, and will help you without judging you.
