Toys Preggos Can't Use

Rayne Millaray Rayne Millaray
There have probably been a thousand threads like this. There will probably be a thousand more. But I'm wondering...

The winner of my most recent giveaway is pregnant. One of the first toys I reviewed was the Brigit by Shots Media. Being fairly new to sex toys, at the time I was shocked to find the instructions explicitly warn against using Brigit while menstruating or pregnant.

It didn't say whether or not it was okay to use externally, it just said at all. And I wondered, but never asked because I'll never be pregnant again, if that's normal, or if it's just certain vibrators?

So, does anyone know if vibes are safe to use while pregnant? If it's just some vibrators that aren't, do you know any others off the top of your head?

Thanks!

I think vibrators in general are likely to be fine to use during pregnancy, as long as it is not a high risk pregnancy. I believe the concern is that orgasms can potentially trigger labor. Obstetricians will often suggest couples have sex to try and trigger labor if a baby is past due. The warning, which I think most if not all vibrators carry, is an attempt by manufacturers to CYA themselves in case someone tries to blame them for premature labor or a miscarriage. I can't think of any particular reason why a vibrator would otherwise be dangerous. However, I would think a concerned person should have an honest discussion with their doctor to be sure.

In terms of other toys that may be unsafe to use during pregnancy, I would certainly think electro-stim would be dangerous and ill advised.

I don't know much about engineering but maybe a certain electrical frequency has been proven to interrupt a fetus' heart rhythm?

I have never heard of that. My OB/GYN told me not to use one for 6 weeks after delivery, but didn't ever say not to during pregnancy. I can't imagine any reason why you wouldn't use one unless it was a high risk pregnancy. Hell, there was a point in all of my pregnancies where the weight of the baby (and everything else in there) caused me to be unable to get off without a vibrator. My crotch was a blue/purple color and it was almost numb. A lot of people actually recommended vibrators for me during that time because of it.

I would say they are safe unless the doctor says so. I would think, if one could have normal sex, a vibrator being used in reason should be no problem. I guess, when in doubt-ask the doc.

I researched this recently because I needed to know. My findings are that it is fine to use one during pregnancy unless you are at risk of premature labor.

I remember with my first pregnancy, I was overdue about 11 days. I had heard about the orgasm triggering labor trick but unfortunately it didn't work for me.

..and wowee! That Liberator furniture we won sure is fun. I am positive it will help us greatly when I get more preggers.
