Forget those six weeks after giving birth that doctor says you cannot have sex. Those six weeks are a welcome relief in my opinion with all the adjusting to a newborn, sleepless nights, sensitive lady bits or post surgery pain that you are experiencing. I’m okay with those six weeks.
Two weeks ago my doctor told me that I was not allowed to have sex for the rest of my pregnancy. Not only that, but I’m not allowed to even orgasm for the rest of my pregnancy.
That is no sex or orgasms at all for the next four months!
Now to some that might be a welcome relief. “Sorry honey, doctor’s orders.” That is not the case for me.
For one thing being pregnant causes me to have crazy erotic dreams. I wake up in the middle of the night wanting to jump my husband right then and there. I haven’t forgotten them by the morning and those delicious sexual visions linger in my mind the rest of the day. If I couldn’t have sex with my husband I could take care of business on my own—but not anymore.
Another thing is that sex feels extra good while pregnant. Again, I know this is not the case for all women. In my case I’m less self conscious about my body when pregnant. So what if my belly is big and bulgy? I’m creating a life inside me and I am beautiful. If missionary style is uncomfortable with that belly in the way then it is all the more reason to be on top which is a good thing. Once my boobs get past the don’t-touch-them-they-hurt stage the sensitivity factor just heightens the whole experience.
Plus, no worries about birth control when having sex while pregnant.
It’s a win all around.
But two weeks ago I was diagnosed with Complete Placenta Previa and my doctor said sex and orgasms are off limits for the rest of the pregnancy. I often have people sympathize with my husband when I tell them this but what about me? At least he can still have an orgasm if he wants to.
