1. Orgasm is not a threat to healthy pregnancy

An orgasm does not pose any threat to a healthy pregnancy. However, if the mother is at risk of preterm birth or placental bleeding, abstinence is recommended. Otherwise, orgasm from all forms of stimulation natural or artificial, are not harmful for pregnancy.

2. They feel better than usual

Pregnancy orgasms feel better than regular ones. They can be more intense due to improved blood circulation in the sex organs. Oxytocin is produced in the later phases of pregnancy and after birth. It plays an important role here because it triggers orgasms while breastfeeding too.

3. Belly changes its shape during this period

So when you orgasm during pregnancy, the muscles of the uterus and abdomen contract and the belly forms a pointed triangular shape. This can appear on any part of the belly, the front or the sides and is not dangerous at all.

4. You may get cramps after an orgasm

But it is normal. You may feel some cramps due to contractions in the uterus which happens after every orgasm. You do not feel them usually but during pregnancy you do. They may feel like menstrual cramps and the intensity may differ from orgasm to orgasm and woman to woman.

5. Pregnancy may change the way you orgasm, for better mostly

The primary thing about orgasms is blood flow to the genitals. Hence, during pregnancy, achieving orgasms is easier. Some women report that they can orgasm much easily during pregnancy and sometimes without direct stimulation. However, for some it may happen the other way around. Some women find that pregnancy interferes with their ability to orgasm.

A particular position could be your key to orgasm but pregnancy could hamper you from achieving the same. The same way, achieving an orgasm in the later stage of pregnancy could be difficult because the uterus muscles cannot contract because of the baby.

You may feel that pregnancy and childbirth can put your sex life to a halt. But that does not happen. Pregnancy and childbirth help you by making orgasm an easy-to-achieve goal.
