Sex Is a Great Workout

When you are sexually active, you are continuously working out and burning calories, which can help lower blood pressure. High blood pressure can cause many different issues during pregnancy (as well as create problems for men and women at any age). After a bedroom session, you may find that you also fall asleep quicker and have a more relaxing night of sleep.

Sex during pregnancy boasts your Self-Confidence

Changes in your body and fluctuating hormones can lead to feeling differently about your body. Many women begin to feel unattractive during pregnancy. Frequent sexual intercourse with your partner can help boost your self-esteem and make you feel like yourself again.

Pregnant sex can feel even better

Pregnancy increases blood flow to your pubic area, which heightens sensitivity, so some people experience enhanced orgasms, says Claire Jones, M.D., an OB-GYN at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto. This makes sense, considering that pregnancy increases the blood volume in your body by as much as 40%. Your vagina is also more lubricated because of increased estrogen levels, and your breasts can be more sensitive too.

Sex during pregnancy helps you tune into your body

Taking time for sexual pleasure and intimacy, either with a partner or solo, lets you slow down and tune into your body. Notice and appreciate all the wondrous physical changes happening as your pregnancy progresses. What better way to enjoy this stage than sensual touch? Love your body and be in awe of the beauty—and power—of growing a baby.

Sex during pregnancy Improves Labor and Recovery Time

Bottom line, the best thing about sex during pregnancy improves labor and recovery time. Orgasms are contractions of your pelvic muscles, which strengthens them, helping to ease labor pains and improving bladder control to avoid leaks or urination during pregnancy. Stronger pelvic muscles can also lead to a quicker recovery after giving birth.
