So when you have sex while pregnant, where is the sperm?

1 Answer:

Hi Sita,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

During sexual intercourse and ejaculation occurs in the vagina, the sperm cells and semen will enter the vagina. However, in women who are pregnant, these sperm cells are no longer possible to fertilize an egg. As long as there is semen that nourishes sperm cells, sperm cells may still survive in the vagina for up to 1 to 3 days after intercourse. However, over time, the semen will eventually dry up or come out with other vaginal secretions (for example, when there is vaginal discharge), so the sperm cells will die.


Having sex while pregnant is not prohibited. However, you should limit this sexual relationship, because according to many experts, sexual intercourse during pregnancy can facilitate the risk of infection in the reproductive organs. In addition, having sex during pregnancy in some sensitive women can also trigger premature contractions. At a young gestational age (less than 20 weeks), strong enough contractions can cause you to have a miscarriage. Meanwhile, at an older gestational age, these contractions can lead to premature labor. In addition, there are also some special conditions where sexual intercourse during pregnancy should not be done at all. An example is if you have placenta previa, which is a condition where the placenta is implanted under, close to or even covering the birth canal. Having sex in this condition can trigger bleeding that could potentially harm your pregnancy.


That's our explanation. For more details, you can consult directly with a gynecologist, yes.
