Safe sex during pregnancy

Pregnant women who want to stay sexually active generally do not fear for their pregnancy, according to a study released yesterday by the Journal of the Canadian Medical Association.Sex during pregnancy do not usually risk, although rare exceptions can cause complications for the mother, support the co-authors of the article, Claire Jones and Crystal Chan, resident in obstetrics and gynecology at the University Toronto.
It is the absence of specific medical advice about sex during pregnancy that prompted residents to focus on.

One objective of the article is to encourage dialogue between doctor and patient, since the subject of sex during and after pregnancy is often overlooked, warned Dr. Chan. "We just want to encourage the creation of an atmosphere in which physicians and their pregnant patients are comfortable discussing sex, " she says.
