Q. Sorry for all the TMI questions lately be we are all adults here lol So I'm 32 weeks pregnant and I'm 2 dilated and I've been having some problems with this pregnancy and my doc seems to think my baby will be born before I get too 36 weeks so last week I had to do the steroid shots for my baby's lungs.. But my question is.. Is it safe to have sex while being dilated? Or will it throw me into labor? My doc said it was fine but a doc that was on call when I was in L&D getting my shots said no... Both said yes and no in the same day so I'm confused!

I'm sorry but I wouldn't have sex with such high risk.

@ yeah that's makes sense I'm just wondering why two different docs would tell me two different things...

I'd avoid it just to avoid infection that's all. But some still do it and are fine. Personally, just take it easy

@ okay! And it won't start labor? That's my main concern! Praying I atleast make it too 34 weeks!!

@ orgasms cause your body to contract. And with you pregnant and already dilated the contractions might not stop. I personally wouldn't risk it because it can send you into labour sooner than what you want.

@ Julia is right. It could cause a false preconception of stress and you'll go before the baby would normally

Yeah you could induce labor and if your water breaks then there is an even greater risk of infection.

I wouldn't want to risk it. My first was born at 34 weeks. She was in the hospital for 10 days. Hardest thing ever driving back and forth several times a day.

@ I'm sorry you had to go through that! I couldn't imagine it would prob kill me! I'd end up staying at the hotel across from the hospital because I live over an hour away! Thank you for the advice!!
