When you're expecting, you either want to get it on all the time or sex is the last thing on your mind. Whichever way you lean, nine months is a long time to go without dancing the horizontal tango. With all the changes your body is going through, you might want to change up your sex routine with pregnancy safe sex toys that are great for self-pleasure.
According to The Bump, unless your physician has told you otherwise, it's totally safe to enjoy a full sexual relationship all the way up until delivery day. Mayo Clinic notes, however, that pregnancy may be deemed unsafe for sexual activity in some cases. For example, if you experience unexplained vaginal bleeding, you're leaking amniotic fluid, your cervix begins to open prematurely, you have placenta previa, you have a history of preterm labor or premature birth, or you're carrying multiples, your physician might caution you against having sex.
But it's not enough for you to get the OK from your doctor. If you're not comfortable getting it on with a partner, then you have to find toys that are safe for expecting women. For starters, you should avoid anything labeled a "novelty toy." EXPLAIN WHY HERE. You should also skip over anything made of PVC, vinyl, and jelly rubber. According to the Kinsey Confidential, those toys contain phthalates, which are chemicals that you don't want them inside you, even if you're not pregnant, but especially when you are.
Of course, if you don't feel like reading through labels upon labels, you can invest in one of these pregnancy-safe sex toys will satisfy all your sexual needs.
