This is a topic that is very delicate not because of its thematic but because of the situation of the risk. What does it mean?

A healthy sex life has also its own benefits for the couple.

The key of the success in a couple when the woman is pregnant is to speak freely to the partner for the desire and to find an arrangement which is good for both.
During the first trimester when the women is less energetic and have nausea the desire of having sex during pregnancy will disappear. This should be comprehended by the partner. Anyway we want to emphasize something very important if the pregnancy has problems you should not pretend doing sex. This might complicate the situation.
While in the second trimester women are more energetic because the pregnancy symptoms like nausea, fatigue also the level of hormones are settled down and this means that the woman is more calm and of course might have the desire of doing sex.
In the last trimester doing sex can help the woman for a fast and healthy delivery when will be the time especially in the last month of pregnancy.
To conclude we want to say that doing sex during pregnancy is a responsibility. You should be careful and understandable in confront of the partner. For any complication that you have you should consult a doctor not trying to do it without the advice of the doctor.But you can find an arrangement and in this way sex during pregnancy can not be prohibited.
