Abstract

The aim of this review was to investigate if sexual intercourse during pregnancy is safe for mother and foetus. The method of this study included bibliography research from both the review and the research literature, mostly in books, professional journals and in ‘pubmed data base’ Results: The research showed that Women often wonder about the safety of sexual intercourse while pregnant and also seem not to discuss it openly with their caregivers. The data on the subject are biased as it is based on surveys and interviews that depend on information provided by pregnant women. Sex is a private issue and society generally encourages this approach. Therefore, data collected is biased by women’s private issues, the societal biases and their interpretation by these individuals as well as the desire to provide ‘the right answer’, the researcher is looking for. While it is generally accepted that sex in pregnancy is safe, most health professionals reassure their clients that sex is safe in pregnancy without knowing the evidence this recommendation is based on. Conclusions: Αs long as no health issues are involved, sexual intercourse during pregnancy is safe.
