Is it OK to have sex while you’re pregnant? Absolutely! But be aware that a fluctuating sex drive during pregnancy is perfectly normal (for both partners). Some women feel sexier while others lose their libido completely—both feelings are normal. Be understanding and listen to your partner’s feelings; don’t add pressure if their desire is low.
If you don’t feel like sex, you can still cuddle, kiss and hug. All types of caresses and closeness are good for you and stimulate the “feel-good” hormone oxytocin that can increase well-being.
