Priya Seth and her husband shared an astonishing equation in bed. But, when she realized she was expecting, the familiarity nose-dive. “We didn’t have sex in the early months. After that, we did have sex sometimes, but finally stopped doing so when the third trimester began,” says Priya. Fortunately, Priya and her partner were bang on, when it came to their self-denial during her pregnancy. “keep away from sex when it bleeds and when the placenta is low on the uterus,” says Dr. Sangeeta Agrawal, obstetrician and gynecologist. “In the initial three months of pregnancy, the embryo is entrenched in the uterus,” says Dr.Bandita sinha, MD, Fortis Hiranandani Hospital, and Mumbai. “In the last trimester, it is risky to have sex; otherwise, there are probability of and near the beginning delivery,” she says. “All of this depends on the progress of the pregnancy and the complications a woman can have,” warns Sinha. “From the fourth to the seventh month of pregnancy, the couple can have sex but need to take extra safety measure,” she says.
