If you ask any woman what is the biggest gift in the world, they would all reply that it is the motherhood. But even though most of the women see the bearing of a child as a blessing and enjoy the changes their bodies go through, some of them do not find it as quite an amazing experience. They sort of see it as a task they must fulfill.
This is why pregnancy is one of the most difficult things a woman can go through. Carrying a child for nine months can often be stressful. But that is why the men can help. There are plenty of things they can do in order to relieve their wives from all the stress of the pregnancy.
Most of the women choose to believe that having intercourse during the pregnancy would be uncomfortable or do some harm to the fetus. Make sure you remember that this is not true. Having sex during the pregnancy may be the best thing you could do to relax you and strengthen the muscles for the delivery. In addition we give you some of the perks of having sex during pregnancy:
- Firstly, it will lower your blood pressure. The love hormone which is released during the sex, called oxytocin, is the one that helps you relieve from all the tension and stress. This way, the level of your blood pressure will always be within the normal boundaries. Sex during pregnancy will not only take care of that, it will also lower your risk of a heart attack.
- It will keep you more comfortable during the night and will enable you to sleep better. Of course, every pregnant woman goes through this process – frequent urination, back pain and trouble finding the right sleeping position, so they get very little hours of sleep as the fetus grows inside. This is why having an orgasm will make you fast asleep and you will not have any troubles during the night.
- As we previously mentioned, having sex during the pregnancy is somethig most of the women avoid. But in fact, indulging in a little romance making with your partner during your child bearing days will only increase the intimacy between you two. You can create an amazingly strong bond. The hormones which are released during the sex make the woman more trusting, supportive and sympathetic. You will be closer with your partner now more than you will ever be.
- Finally, by having sex you can reduce your pain. Again, the hormones are involved here. Oestrogen, progesterone and prolactin enable the flow of blood to the vagina and the pelvic area, increasing the lubrication and sensitivity and decreasing the pain.
