Pregnancy is the phase in a woman's life which turns her life upside down, especially when it's the first child. While some women view pregnancy as a burden they have to carry for nine months, some believe in cherishing every pain and happiness and create memories.
There are several theories about pregnancy, the most common being don't have sex while carrying your foetus, but the truth is a woman might just have the best sex of her life. The bonus being ease while delivering the baby!
Hold on, we have another great news for you. Apart from eating for two (and that too the most delicious of food), you can have a lot of sex with your partner too! Here are some pretty good reasons why.
Oxytocin, also known as the love hormone is released during sex and acts as a good stress reliever. The hormone leads to the release of the built up stress thus keeping the blood pressure low. Sex makes the mother calmer and reduces chances of heart attack.
It is scientifically proven that women feel much more relaxed after an orgasm, and this is very helpful during pregnancy when the mother is having issues like back pain and frequent urination. Sex enables them to have a safe and sound sleep.
There's a myth that women turn very abrasive and non-romantic during pregnancy. But the truth is, oxytocin boosts emotional attachment in the woman's body and keeps it happy. Oxytocin acts as a bonding hormone and makes the pregnant woman caring, supportive and trusting. Apart from the happiness of a baby on the way, being close to each other keep the partners even closer.
Certain hormones like prolactin, estrogen and progesterone are released during sex and increase blood flow in the pelvic region including the vagina. They increase the sensitivity and lubrication in the area and reduce chances of painful intercourse. Regular coitus also helps in the ripening of the cervix region thus reducing the pain during delivery.
