My wife is estimated by the midwife based on the calculation of labor will occur in the next 3 to 7 days. Midwives who will assist in childbirth suggest to continue to have sexual intercourse and ejaculation into the vagina to facilitate labor later. However, Dr. Rinita advised not to ejaculate into the vagina because sperm contains prostaglandins which can trigger uterine contractions. Therefore, be careful if you ejaculate in the vagina, especially during late trimester pregnancy, because it can trigger contractions. How about this? Which theory should I follow?

1 Answer:

Hello, thanks for the question.


Sexual intercourse during pregnancy is generally safe, except for mothers who are at risk, so sexual intercourse is not recommended or the frequency is reduced. From some literature, sexual intercourse carried out during the third trimester of pregnancy especially before delivery is more recommended, but several other sources say that sexual intercourse is not related to trigger labor. Sperm contains prostaglandins that can trigger uterine contractions, but from several studies sperm ejaculation in the womb does not cause premature births, in other words sperm ejaculation in the womb will not cause uterine contractions that trigger labor and are safe if the fetus has not entered mature age or 37 weeks and above. If you are still in doubt, ask your obstetrician directly for a more complete explanation and opinion. If the pregnancy is entering its mature age, you should prepare yourself and your family to welcome the birth of the baby, this preparation can take the form of physical, mental, and financial preparation. Also, maintain a healthy condition, eat healthy and nutritious food, meet fluid needs, get enough rest, and avoid strenuous activities. We recommend that you immediately go to the hospital or health care center if signs of childbirth are found, such as the stomach mules getting more and more frequent and strong, mucous blood, water, or if accompanied by other complaints.


Thus, hopefully it helps.
