When a woman is pregnant, she goes through many changes to her body and that is the biggest joy that can happen to her. Well it is a fact that pregnancy is not easy at all and that it can be really stressful. Carrying a child for nine months cannot be easy.
Although there is a way to relieve the stress, and that is sex. Many women will not agree with it and will say that you shouldn’t have sex during pregnancy but that is absolutely not true. The most interesting fact about this is that sex during pregnancy will be actually the best sex you will ever have. Having sex during pregnancy will strengthen the muscles for your labor and delivery.
And here are 4 good reasons why you should have sex during pregnancy:
1. Reduces pain – How is this even possible someone will ask. Yes it is possible because certain hormones such as prolactin, estrogen and progesterone are increasing the blood flow to the pelvic area, including the vagina and also they are increasing the lubrication and the sensitivity.
2. Increases intimacy –You will be even more closer and your intimacy between you and your partner will be at the highest level possible if you have sex during pregnancy. Why is that so? Because during pregnancy it is released oxytocin usually referred as the bonding hormone and that makes women more trusting and supportive during pregnancy.
3. Enables sound sleep – During pregnancy it is normal to have back pain, to have to urination more often and having troubles with sleeping. After having orgasm you will have no trouble with falling asleep.
4. Lowers blood pressure – Oxytocin (love hormone) is a good stress reliever and it is released during sex when the woman is pregnant. Relieving stress will keep your blood pressure at the normal level and if you have sex during pregnancy you will be calmer and you will reduce your risk of heart attack.
