Stomach Ache When Having Sex While Pregnant 8 Months?
Assalammu’alaikum doctor., I want to ask the doctor, I am 8 months of pregnancy, why when having sex lasts even after my stomach feels mules? Is that harmless? Or normal?
Good evening Ummah Aisha, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Heartburn that arises after having sex during pregnancy is one of the things that is common to occur while having sex, there are several things such as stimulation of the nipples and also ejaculation in the vagina, can stimulate the release of the hormone oxytocin, the hormone that plays a role to cause contractions in the muscles of the uterus so that the stomach feels heartburn due to contractions in the uterine muscles.
The heartburn condition is generally relatively safe and is a normal thing to happen, as long as after the heartburn does not arise severe abdominal pain accompanied by the presence of a lot of blood coming out of the vagina or discharge from the vagina. If that happens, then you most likely have the threat of a miscarriage or even have a miscarriage, so it requires further action at the nearest hospital emergency room. As long as you don't have a miscarriage, placenta previa, or the threat of premature birth you are still allowed to have intercourse, but there are some things to be considered during intercourse at a young pregnancy such as sexually transmitted infections, bleeding and other risks that threaten your fetus . You can read about these things more fully in the following article: having sex during young pregnancy.
I hope this helps.
