Can Sex Start Labor

curious - March 19

Hey. I was just wanting to know if having s_x can start labor? I am only 35 weeks and want to, but am afraid that having s_x could throw me into labor or maybe even break my waters. Is that possible? Or do i have nothing to worry about? I have been afraid to have s_x with my hubby cuz I have heard that it can bring on labor and so I have been trying to avoid it. I feel so bad toward my hubby, cuz i know he is already gonna have to wait atleast 6 weeks after baby is born. Thanks for any information or advice!

It CAN start labor.... if you're body is ready for it. Unless if you have had problems with pre-term labor or your doc has specifically told you not to then there really isn't any reason why you shouldn't enjoy without worrying. There's actually a couple of other places on this site that help outline some do's, don'ts, and cautions. http://www.pregnancy-info.net/s_x_intro.html

exactly what sara said. but if it is a go, and youre worried about it, have him wear a condom.. it's something in the sperm (can't think of the name right now) that irritates the cervix that causes everything to start. hope that helps.
