Hey dont get disheartened. have u tried talking to ur husband about it ?

Sonali Shivlani

It is natural for some women to have a strong sexual urge during pregnancy due to the hormonal changes. If the medication has been prescribed to him by a doctor and they are safe for him then they can be continued during your pregnancy as it will have no effect on the pregnancy. Be careful of positions though and there should be no pressure on the abdomen. From your end please make sure that intercourse is allowed during your pregnancy and it is safe for you and the baby. Your doctor will be able to confirm this for you.

Hi relax and here is some advise from BabyChakra expert Sonal Raja, Psychologist.

Hi, ED, can be a frustrating experience for both you and your partner. It might be more anxiety provoking for him to perform sexually. He might also not be aware that you can have sex even while being pregnant. Sharing this info and letting him know that you are still needing physical relationship, might be a good place to start. Also, since the pressure to actually conceive is not there, help him become less anxious about it, which might motivate him to continue his med.

Let us know if this works or if you want further advise. We can connect u to Sonal.
