Playing with sex toys while pregnant is a concern for most women and unfortunately, they are too shy to ask doctors about the possibility. The good news is that using sex toys during pregnancy is not exactly a bad idea. In fact, as long as the couple has been given the go signal to have sex during pregnancy, then this automatically means that sex toys are OK too.
What sex toys while pregnant are allowed?
Unfortunately, not all sex toys can be used by pregnant women. Vibrators are usually the most commonly used and they are perfectly safe during pregnancy. Since vibrators work the same way as a penis does, then there are no adverse effects to the item. Note however that deep penetration – whether using a vibrator or not – should be avoided during the last stages of pregnancy. Other sex toys that may be restrictive should be avoided as much as possible since they can temporarily affect the health of the female. Sexual lubricants may also be used and will not harm the baby. In fact, it might even be helpful since pregnant women often find it hard to self lubricate even when aroused.
When are sex toys while pregnant not allowed?
As already mentioned, using sex toys while pregnant is OK – as long as the doctor approves of sex as a whole. However, women who have had miscarriages in the past or having difficulty with their pregnancy should not be allowed to use them. Bleeding while pregnancy should also be a clear indicator that any kind of penetration is not allowed. In some cases, women carrying twins or triplets should also abstain or at least minimize their sexual encounters.
Safety when Using Sex toys while Pregnant
Note that even if sex toys are allowed even during pregnancy, they should be kept clean and properly sterilized after every use. This is crucial because dirty vibrators may carry bacteria that will eventually affect the child. Couples should never mix orifices when it comes to vibrator play because this increases the risk.
What most people don’t realize is that sex is actually a great way to prepare for childbirth. Women who have been enjoying sexual relations during the gestation of the fetus may have faster and easier births than those who do not. Hence, using sex toys while pregnant may even be advantageous for the mother as long as it is approved by the doctor. Otherwise, abstinence would be the best way to go.
