Pregnancy and sex go together very nicely. Many couples report that pregnant sex is the best sex they've ever had in their lives. This doesn't mean that pregnant sex isn't without issues. Though the use of the right pregnant sex position can help alleviate complications you may have in your sex life during pregnancy.

Here are some common complaints from women about sex in pregnancy:

  • Can't lay on their back
  • Doesn't want the partner on top
  • Partner goes too deeply
  • Orgasm issues

The good news is the pregnant sex positions can help alleviate many of the difficulties you're experiencing, depending on which position you choose. Remember, difficulties with pregnant sex can come from pregnancy symptoms to physical challenges related to the size of your growing belly.
