Afraid To Have An Orgasm

Hi, I'm 45 years old and this is the first time I conceived with the help of IVF. I will be entering my second trimester next week and so far everything is fine.

Because I had to wait so long for this and I had to go through so much for this, I was afraid to risk anything. That's I have stayed away from sex (or having any sort of orgasm) for the last 12 weeks (since the IVF). Because my body was used to having so much sex, I am finding it extremely difficult, more so when my partner kisses me that makes me feel aroused until the next day or so. It's just difficult.

Does my pregnancy fall into high risk pregnancy given my age and the IVF?

Also, am I doing the right thing by not taking any chances with orgasm or is it completely safe for me to have sex in my second trimester?

Congratulations on a successful IVF. I have never heard of orgasms being dangerous for a pregnancy, though I understand your concern. The end of the first trimester is a little higher risk for miscarriage. Once that is behind you there is no reason I know of not to enjoy your sexuality fully. As the pregnancy progresses you can find positions that give you the right stimulation without impact on the uterus. Ask your doc, I'm pretty sure she will encourage you.
