Pregnancy & Sex
Should we use protection when having sex with my pregnant partner?
Yes, contraception is also used to prevent STIs from being transmitted, this is very important as the child may be infected if protection is not used. Having a sexually transmitted illness while pregnant can result in major health issues for both you and your child. If your partner has an active or newly confirmed sexually transmitted infection, avoid all types of intercourse – vaginal, oral, and anal. You should use a condom if you are not in a monogamous relationship with your partner, or if you have sex with a new partner while pregnant.
