Is it possible to have sexual intercourse in the 32nd week of pregnancy?

Yes, in principle, it is possible to have sexual intercourse in the 32nd week of pregnancy as long as the pregnancy has developed normally and is progressing without complications. For this reason, it is always best to consult the specialist who is handling the pregnancy, since he is the one who knows the particular situation best.

Thus, the specialist may contraindicate sexual relations during pregnancy if any of the following situations occur:

  • Cervical insufficiency.
  • Placenta previa.
  • History or risk of premature delivery or miscarriage.
  • Vaginal bleeding.
  • Amniotic fluid leakage.
  • Multiple pregnancy.

On the other hand, if sexual intercourse takes place in the 32nd week of pregnancy, it will be important to adopt a comfortable position that does not put pressure on the woman's belly, since it will already have a considerable size.

Finally, if the woman experiences pain or bleeding during or after sexual intercourse, she should consult a specialist.
