Q&A: Can I use a vibrator while pregnant?

Is it okay to use a vibrator while I’m pregnant? I haven’t asked my doctor yet. I am only seven weeks along, and I have already used one once. -- anonymous user

The Bump Expert

Unless your doctor or health care provider has specifically asked you to refrain from sexual activity due to potential complications with your pregnancy, it should be absolutely fine to use a vibrator.

Many couples enjoy having a full sexual relationship right up to the birth of their baby. And when you think that penetrative sex involves active thrusting, the vibrator seems mild in comparison. Also there is no reason you shouldn’t use a vibrator externally on your clitoral region, as that’s a very good way to bring yourself to climax (if you have a high-risk pregnancy, though, check with your doc first). If you have a clean bill of health and your pregnancy is going swimmingly, you still might find you’re more satisfied having sex with your husband or using the vibrator internally.

As with any activity during pregnancy, use your judgment about how you’re feeling to determine what you do. But don’t let your partner miss out on the fun -- he may want to get involved in the action too!

This is a great article - Q&A about having an "O". http://www.fitpregnancy.com/yourpregnancy/sex_relationships/The-Pregnancy-Orgasm-82812012.html From the article: Q: Why does the pregnant belly get so hard during orgasm? A: The abdominal muscles contract as they normally would, but it’s more evident because your belly’s extended.

Q&A: Can I use a vibrator while pregnant?

you're uterus always contracts when you have an orgasm, but you are normally unaware of it when it is its normal size )prepregnancy. now that the uterus has grown the contractions are more noticable and cause cramping. it should go away within a few minutes or so. i find that it tends to help if you stay laying down for a while afterwards.

Q&A: Can I use a vibrator while pregnant?

Is this possible at the VERY BEGINNING of a pregnancy, like 4-6 weeks along? I was on clomid and might be pregnant but didnt know about the cramping after the "O".

Q&A: Can I use a vibrator while pregnant?

YES!! If you have a normal pregnancy, by all means use one! Some women have an increase in their sex drive while they are pregnant--as was def. the case with me. Vibrators are awesome!!!

Q&A: Can I use a vibrator while pregnant?

Okay! I thought I was ilke the only one!!! But it's okay to use a vibrator! I believe the only issue would be is not to put it too far inside! i use it for outside stimulation (always have). And yes its normal for your tummy to have contractions or feel like its squeezing. An issue would arrise if you are bleeding or fluids show. But I use mine 1 or 2 times a day! Now I wonder it thats too much stimuli!

Q&A: Can I use a vibrator while pregnant?

@ alvarado, I asked my OB about this at 8 weeks because I had been having this issue since about 5 weeks--she said it's normal and not to worry. I've read if the discomfort lasts for an extended period--like hours--than it's something you should mention to your doc but otherwise, it's normal.

it is perfectly normal to cramp up after orgasm. whether sex with a partner or yourself.

Q&A: Can I use a vibrator while pregnant?

Ladies, I think the reason we notice the cramping now is because we are so paranoid. Let's all just relax and have a good time ;)
