There are many myths circulating in society about pregnancy. One of them is having sex during late pregnancy can facilitate childbirth. Then is it true?

Many believe that the labor process can be faster if Mommy is diligent in having sex closer to the day of delivery. This is because having sex can trigger contractions and labor to be faster. According to the Makuku Family consultant obstetrician and gynecologist, dr. Indra NC Anwar, Sp.OG, has nothing to do with having sex during a big pregnancy with ease of delivery.

"There is no direct relationship. This means that intercourse may be done according to need," said Dr. Indra.

In general, having sex during pregnancy can cause uterine contractions. Likewise, during orgasm, the uterus can be stimulated to speed up the delivery process. However, the statement Sex can speed up labor so far it has not been medically proven.

In addition, Dr. Indra also explained the rules for having sex during pregnancy. Having sex during early pregnancy is actually quite safe. However, in early pregnancy or the first trimester, pregnant women usually experience morning sickness Where nausea and fatigue arise which can interfere with intimate relationships. Meanwhile, in a large pregnancy, pregnant women must pay attention to the comfort of pregnant women because their stomachs are getting bigger. 

In terms of frequency, of course it is different between pregnant women and normal women. The safest limit pregnant women should have sex no more than three times per week. Because too often having sex can increase the risk of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) in pregnant women. Sexual intercourse should also not be done when pregnancy has complications. This prevents the deterioration of the health condition of pregnancy.

If Mommy is still in doubt, Makuku as a mother and child consultant provides private consultation and whatsapp lectures (Kulwap) with experts who are experts in their fields.
