Sex Q&A: Am I Wrong to Expect This?

Q.

The Nest Q&AI'm pregnant and my husband doesn't want to have sex. Am I wrong to expect it?

A.

In an ideal world, you're absolutely right; there should be compromise in the bedroom just as there should be compromise in every other aspect of a relationship. But because we're living in the real world and this is a temporary situation, you may have to take things slower than you want to. While it's perfectly safe to have sex during pregnancy, some men get anxious about potentially hurting the baby -- or you! Reassure him that nothing bad will happen, and eventually he may warm up to the idea. If he still shies away from it, ask him to pleasure you with his hands or use a vibrator to stimulate you to orgasm. Psst...you can also masturbate and stimulate yourself -- pregnant or not.
