If you’re newly pregnant, and especially if you’ve been trying to conceive for a while, you may be worried about how sex could affect your growing child.

First of all, you might be wondering if you should even have vaginal sex while pregnant. Don’t worry: Sex while pregnant is actually beneficial for you and your child! It can help induce labor at the right time, support a healthy mood, and increase cardiovascular blood flow for you and your baby. 

If you’re concerned that sex -- and your partner’s penis -- could somehow hurt your baby, don’t be. Your cervix will keep your partner’s penis outside of the uterus, meaning your baby won’t be anywhere near it. Plus, your fetus is surrounded by a protective system that includes your placenta, amniotic sac, and mucus plug, all of which are very selective about what comes near your growing child. 

As for sperm itself, it’s considered safe for pregnant women and their babies, but it’s a good idea to check with your doctor if you have any risk factors associated with your pregnancy. Plus, most sperm will be discharged from the vagina anyway. 

Conclusion: If you’re feeling frisky while pregnant (and many women will experience an increased libido during the second and third trimester), you can get it on knowing that you, your partner, and your baby will benefit.
