The topic of sexuality when a woman is pregnant is still a taboo subject nowadays. It’s important to learn about it and to talk to your doctor in order to follow the recommendations given by the specialist as pregnancy progresses.
There are many women who enjoy having more sex when they are pregnant, especially in the first stage of gestation. They can reach an orgasm more easily because their body is in a very strong hormonal transition and there is also more blood flow to the pelvic area, which helps build sexual desire and lubrication.

Thirdly, listen to her about the way she feels in certain positions and pay attention to her needs. Once you ensure everything feels right, you can practice these top 6 positions so you can both enjoy your sex life without affecting the health of the baby.
