VERY TMI Question - Sex (in all forms) and low lying placenta
Ok ladies, before I start I shall warn you.. VERY TMI
Me and OH got told at our 20 week scan that placenta was quite low, and that we'd need further scans at 32 and 36 weeks. Now, as we lost two last year, we've already been holding back a lot in our usual 2x a day sex life... Which is honestly killing both of us! but we also don't want to do anything that would cause any kind of damage
Anyway, we have been good, even in terms of oral (because although thats nice, what I want is SEX!!!) And we were talking and wondered whether anal would be bad for low lying placenta... we're not exactly frequent at that in general, but have dabbled (as you do!)
We're getting married next week, and already desperate for sex, we were hoping to of course, consummate... but after some googling apparently as the muscle is SO close, anal is not that great of an either...
Feel like screaming, we both just half laughed and said that we don't wanna just do oral and/or shallow sex, what we want is like our old sessions lol. Oral doesn't satisfy the NEEEEEEED
I have the same problem but we have been having sex (as we never got told otherwise) and we havent had any problems, obviously if you feel uncomfortable in anyway stop,but i would talk to your midwife just to get reassurance x
First of all let me say I know exactly how you feel!!! I too have been told i have a low placenta...we had decided to stop all sexual activities...my doc has said that I am on pelvic rest and that includes having an orgasm as that is your uterus contracting and can cause bleeding. Im not saying its been easy but I just dont want to risk it...we can hold off a few more months. Ofcourse my hubby can still "do his thing alone" it surely aint the same but he gets more than I do lol
Since it'll be your honeymoon, I'd beg for a scan, they might take pity. Was the original advice to abstain from deep penetration entirely, or to reduce the frequency? Maybe if you've been very good, it would be okay?
