Sexual Positions During Pregnancy

Allison Hutton


During the early stages of pregnancy, you may not have any issues regarding your comfort level during sex. However, as your body changes and grows, your "normal" positions may become much more uncomfortable.

Having your partner on top may be as uncomfortable for him as it is for you. The most important thing to remember is to keep pressure off of your pregnant belly. Therefore, you and your partner may need to become a bit more creative when making love. If the missionary position (partner on top) becomes more awkward and uncomfortable, you may need to re-think exactly how you are going about things.

Perhaps you may want to reverse the roles, with your partner on the bottom, instead of you. Another option, that also takes the pressure off of your belly, is the "spoon" position. Each of you lay on your side, with your partner behind you. Additionally, you could lay at the end of the bed, with your partner kneeling or standing on the floor at the foot of the bed.

Talk to close friends, ask your doctor, or simply try different positions, and you will surely come across something that works for both of you.
