Wondering if sex toys, oral sex, masturbation and everything in between the sheets, that is are okay when you're expecting? Sex toys like dildos and vibrators are safe during pregnancy. After all, they're just mechanical versions of the real thing — though make sure that anything you introduce into the vagina is clean before you use it. But avoid blowing into the vagina during pregnancy, since it can lead to an air embolism when an air bubble enters a vein or artery and blocks it, which can cause a heart attack, stroke or respiratory failure.

You and your partner can use positions that are safe and comfortable throughout pregnancy. If after having sex you have heavy bleeding, painful cramps or leaking amniotic fluid, call your provider or go to the emergency room. Talk to your partner about what makes you feel comfortable. Sex may not be safe during pregnancy if you have or have had certain pregnancy complications.
