Pregnancy and Its Effect on Women's Sexual Desire

PG Dip(psycosexual diseases), MBBS

Pregnancy and Its Effect on Women's Sexual Desire

Did you know that pregnancy can alter your libido, since it is influenced by biological, psychological and social factors? It is no surprise that the numerous hormonal changes and the emotional roller-coaster that a woman experiences during pregnancy, can change her desire for sex. Of course, no two woman's sexual drive is the same and hence the matter is very individual and unique for every woman. 

But some common bodily trends are observed during the various trimesters of pregnancy.

1. During the first trimester of pregnancy, some women are put off by sex when the symptoms of nausea, vomiting and tiredness kick in. This can be blamed on the rise in the levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. A woman would rather just catch up on lost sleep and lie in bed by herself, getting all the rest she can.

2. The second trimester brings relief in the symptoms felt during the first trimester. Some women experience a surge in their libido, as energy levels improve and they feel relatively more relaxed. 

3. The third trimester brings with it weight gain, back pain and other symptoms which can lower a woman's sexual drive again.

4. Besides the typical changes that are brought on in the different trimesters, quite a few women report a heightened desire for sex. With all those pregnancy hormones flowing, it's understandable. During pregnancy, a woman's breasts get bigger and more sensitive. The vulva also becomes engorged from extra blood flow and even more sensitive, which could lead to more enjoyable pregnancy sex. 

5. Another fact is that, with no longer having to worry about contraception during this time, both partners welcome the fact that they can have sex anytime they want or without worrying about the obligations of ovulation. 

So basically, a woman can easily embrace her sexual desire during this special time of pregnancy. As long as a doctor doesn't suggest otherwise, it is perfectly safe for a woman to revel in her new found desire and have sex with her partner until the baby arrives.

Remember 5 days before periods and 5 days after periods is relatively safe period to have sex. In this chances of pregnancy is very less to negligible. Early ejaculation or premature ejaculation is a common problem and most indians have it. It happens because you are not able to control your excitement when you go for sex. By the time you start to sex with your partner, your peak is near and you get discharged soon. Males usually have 3 minutes from arousal to discharge. Females take 10-15 minutes to get aroused. So how to match both. Learn to desensitize or control your emotions a little by thinking some thing else while you do fore play on your partner. You can increase the time of foreplay and that will you be satisfied that you are spending enough time in bed. When about 10-15 minutes have passed then think of yourself and you will charged immediately in a second. Then do sex then. If you have proper desires then erection will too be good. If negative thoughts are there then erection will not be good. For insertion take help of some lubrication but if you have good desires and foreplay is good, lubrication come automatically. Ask your wife to help in getting insertion. Changing of positions also helps in proper insertion and lasting & satisfying sex. Your diet should consist of is fresh fruits what ever available and similarly fresh vegetables and one hour of jogging or brisk walking every morning. This will keep you sexually active.

My wife delivered twins by normal delivery before one and half month. Now we do not need another child for 3 years. Except condom what are the way of taking protection. We want to have unprotected sex. Please reply.

Ideal contraception for the lactating mother is copper t (iucd). While choosing a method of contraception, it is important that it not interfere with lactation or have negative effects on the infant. Iucd is more effective than condoms and progesterone only pills. Oral pills suppresses milk production. And there is no need to take daily pills with this method of contraception.

Please do not sleep on your arm it can cause such problem. Use pillow and change position of your baby sometimes left lateral sometimes right lateral, so that you and your baby too can have a good sleep. Do not sleep only on one side, it is not good for you and your baby also.

My wife is pregnant for 5 months. What are do's and don't's for a healthy baby she should follow.
Exercise/yoga during pregnancy exercise 1: walking is a safe exercise but wear non-slippery shoes with padded soles. 1. Exercise 2: do some'light' exercises as that will help your body and mind. Avoid postures that involve heavy use of abdominal muscles and backward bend. Exercise strengthens your abdominal and pelvic muscles which promotes an easy delivery. 2. While exercising, change your position slowly to avoid sudden jerks. Do not exercise if you are not feeling well or feel any pain. 3. Light yoga, meditation and breathing exercises like pranayam help immensely 4. Consult your doctor before you start exercising and especially if you have diabetes, heart disease or asthma. Folic acid during pregnancy 1. Folic acid vitamin is highly recommended as it reduces risk of brain/spinal cord defects. 2. Also helps in blood and protein production. It also helps in development of nervous system. 3. Extremely beneficial during early weeks of pregnancy- especially first three months. 4. Green leafy vegetables, peas, beans, nuts, orange juice, strawberry, banana, nuts, pulses. 5. Recommended dose of folic acid is about 0.4 mg (400 microgram) every day until you are 12 weeks pregnant. Essential vitamins during pregnancy: 1. Vitamin a: essential during 2nd trimester (4th to 6th months of pregnancy). Do not take supplements containing more than 3000 iu of vitamin a. Sources of vitamin a: (a) vegetables: carrot (gajar), potato (aaloo), tomato (tamaatar), cabbage (patta gobhi). (b) fruits: mango (aam), banana (kela), guava (amrood), papaya (papita).

(c) food: eggs, brown rice, fish, yogurt (dahi), milk and milk products like cheese, cow and soy milk food and essential minerals during pregnancy 1. Many woman feel that they need to eat for two as they are carrying a baby inside. This should not be the case and usually leads to weight gain after baby is delivered. You only need to increase your intake of iron, calcium, folic acid and essential vitamins. Avoid spicy and deep fried food. 2. Pregnancy is not the time for dieting as the pregnant mother and the baby may not get enough nutrients. 3. Emphasis should not be on over-feeding, but on having nutritious food. A normal woman needs about 1600-2200 calories a day and experts recommend not more than 300 calories extra for pregnant women. Special precautions from 4th month of pregnancy: 1. Proteins: especially essential during 3rd trimester (7th to 9th months of pregnancy). For growth, repair of muscle, skin, hair and body tissues. Protein deficiency leads to low immunity, hairfall, feeling of tiredness. Proteins are not stored in our body as any excess protein is converted to energy or fat. (a) major protein sources: egg white (white portion), milk, soybeans/soymilk, fish, cheese, tofu. (b) other protein sources: beans with wheat, nuts, curd, yogurt (dahi) 2. Carbohydrates our main source of energy. Stored in liver and muscles. Carbohydrates are used the most by our body duringexercise. Hence, it is important during pregnancy to consume a diet rich in carbohydrates. (a) instant/rapid carbohydrates energy sources: banana, milk, sweets, sugarcane juice. (b) slow carbohydrates energy sources: beans, bread, cereals, potato, pulses, rice. 3. Iron: especially essential during 2nd trimester (4th to 6th months of pregnancy). Helps in production of haemoglobin and transportation of oxygen to blood cells. 1. Largest mineral found in our blood which also helps in producing energy. 2. If taking iron and vitamin c supplements, do not take them at the same time but after a gap of about 3 hours. Taking vitamin c tablet helps in absorbing iron. Sources of iron: 1. Vegetables: spinach, dark green leafy vegetables, lentils (daal). 2. Fruits: avocados (makhanphal), peach (adau), pear (nashpati), pumpkin (kaddu), raisin (kishmish), pomegranate (anaar). 3. Food: eggs, fish, meat, cereals, almonds (badam), whole wheat bread, soybean. 4. Calcium 1. Helps form strong bones, teeth, healthy gums, muscle growth and prevents muscle cramps. 2. Taking a small dose an hour before bedtime helps achieve sound sleep. Sources of calcium: 1. Vegetables: cabbage, dark green leafy vegetables, broccoli, figs (anjeer), flax seeds (san beej). Food: eggs, milk, dairy products, yogurt (dahi), almonds (badam), soybeans/soymilk. Dietary risks 1. Stay hydrated: dehydration increases risk of miscarriage. So drink at least 2 litres of fluids every day. Water, fresh fruit juices, soups that are low in salt, milk (low or no fat) and soy milk are best fluid options. 2. Do not have excessive papaya as it sometimes may trigger a miscarriage. 3. Must wash all fruits and vegetables before eating to reduce chances of infection. 4. Avoid more than 2 cups of non-herbal tea/coffee in a day as caffeine may lead to miscarriage. 5. Avoid excess spices, frozen or high mercury sea food like oysters. Non dietary rissks 1. Avoid viral vaccines (measles, mumps, mmr), explosure to x-rays or close contact with microwave. 2. Visit your doctor at least thrice and prefer not to have more than 2 sonographies done over 9 months. 3.

Avoid having too much oil or ghee. 5. Don't take very hot water baths or hot tub/sauna baths as they may alter your body temperature.

Treated tb is not dangerous for pregnancy, even untreated tb is not. Chest xray can not lead to damage because the dose provided is very low. There are some people who don't know the recent advances in gynaecology, so they advice abortion, nothing else. Many of my patients had chest x ray in pregnancy and are doing well. And whether the xray caused any damage, we can determine it by some simple tests. Please don't abort a baby only because of uncertainty, second time you may not get pregnancy at all.

Super Fact of the Day: Human hair is practically never destroyed
Apart from it being non-flammable, human hair is to an extent non-disintegrative as it decays at a very slow rate. Ever wondered why hair clogs up pipes? it is because hair cannot be destroyed by cold, climate change, water, or any other natural force and it is even resistant to most acids and corrosive chemicals.
