For men with a baby on the way, things are probably going quite well indeed. Their family is growing, their lovely female companion is about to get that rosy glow, and they’re looking forward to a unique kind of intimacy that they only get to enjoy for about nine months. It makes sense that a man pays much more attention to member care during this time, in the hopes that his lovely lady will notice and want to play in the bedroom. |
But there are many men who might roll their eyes and sigh about pregnancy, mostly because they have bought into the myths that say things go downhill during this time. Here’s what a man really needs to know about intimacy, pregnancy, manhood health and more.
Myths about intimacy and pregnancy
Ready for the truth? Here are some of the most common myths and the truth of the matter:
1) Intimacy will hurt the baby. Unless the doctor has specifically said there is some medical condition that eliminates penetration for the course of the pregnancy, a little bedroom action isn’t going to hurt the little one in the slightest. To be perfectly safe, check with the doctor at the first exam to make sure everything is still good to go on the sensual front.
2) She won’t want intimacy. On the contrary! Pregnant women deal with a multitude of hormones coursing through their bodies, and many of those hormones make them want to have intimacy - and lots of it. However, don’t be surprised if she’s a little turned off during the first three months, as that’s the time morning sickness hits. Nobody (man or woman!) wants to have intimacy when they feel like they’re going to throw up with the slightest movement. But during the second and third trimester, she is probably going to say "bring it on!"
3) Doggy is the only position that will work. That’s definitely not true, and in fact, some women might find doggy quite uncomfortable. The usual missionary is tough, thanks to that growing belly. So a guy will need to get creative with his sensual positions, including plenty of woman-on-top and side-to-side in his repertoire.
4) The baby knows what’s going on. A being so tiny and new has no clue what coupling is, so there’s no way he or she could possibly know or understand what’s going on down there. Besides that, the motion of coupling and the rhythmic muscle contractions a woman experiences during release might actually be soothing to the baby.
5) It will spark early labor. When a woman is very pregnant, right at the end of the pregnancy, a little intimacy might go a long way toward getting things ready to go. But in most cases, this activity will not bring on labor. To be safe, ask the doctor if and when the sensual activity needs to stop in order to help ensure the baby stays in as long as it should.
6) I just felt the baby! No, that wasn’t the baby. That was the cervix, which might be a little lower near the end of the pregnancy. However, if a guy is feeling this, he might also be causing pain for his lovely lady, so it’s important that communication stays open and free. If she is complaining of pain or cramping, stop the action immediately.
7) She won’t want intimacy after the baby. Yes, she will. But it will take some time for her body to heal, so count on at least a few months of an off-limits sensual life. And in fact, a guy might not want coupling, either, depending upon how much sleep the new parents are getting!
Whether intimacy continues during pregnancy or not, a guy should keep his member ready to go with a top-notch male organ crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . Look for a crème that contains a multitude of vitamins and nutrients, such as vitamin A, B5, C, D and alpha lipoic acid. Also look for a crème with Shea butter and vitamin E, to provide plenty of important hydration.
