  • How does orgasm change during pregnancy?

“During the period of pregnancy, relaxin is present, which is a hormone that makes tissues more elastic. In fact, based on the situation of the pelvic floor muscles of everyone it is possible, therefore, that there is less sensitivity during penetration, but it is not a rule that applies to everyone.

During the first trimester, indeed, it is possible that a decrease in sexual desire occurs. This decline can be due to many reasons such as tiredness, nausea or fears arising from false beliefs about sex and pregnancy.

On the other hand, in the second trimester, we see an increase in desire and consequent sexual activity. Then, in the third trimester, the desire suffers a high decline.

However, all that we have mentioned is not a fixed condition, each couple experiences the period of pregnancy with their own modalities and characteristics.

If the couple's sexuality has always proved to be good, balanced and based on dialogue, the period of pregnancy will also be a period of great sexual satisfaction. "

In conclusion, having sexual intercourse during pregnancy, with the right precautions, is recommended and possible. Always rely on an expert to receive the right advice and the right information.
