Engaging topic analysis of Anal Sex:

Have you ever used a rabbit for anal sex?
i want to surprise hubby with a new toy for our anniversary. Do guys ever use rabbits for anal pleasure? i thought maybe the rabbit ears would feel.

They look so LONG!
I have had anal sex in the past (only on 2 occasions), but they weren't exactly the greatest experience, and it was awhile ago. But my hubby is...

Prep time
Does a longer en-plugged time increase the ease in dildo insertion during anal sex?

Can you get hemorrhoids from anal sex?
I am wondering if people get hemeroids or any other problems due to anal sex.

Anal sex is painful
How many people find anal sex enjoyable? Can or do you have anal orgasms?

Talk to your doctor if you have specific questions, otherwise P'gell or another one of the nurses might have some info. AFAIK there hasn't been much research on this, so your answer will probably be conjecture.

The big thing that comes to my mind would be to be doubly careful about cleanliness, since you want to minimize the risk of infections while you're pregnant. Also be careful about positions and putting pressure on the uterus, especially later in the pregnancy. I've heard that doggy and other rear entry positions are recommended for sex (P-V) during the final trimester sometimes, so one of those positions might be better than something putting pressure on your abdomen.

There is not a lot of research on this. The more "intense" orgasms get, the more they are likely to trigger contractions. During a normal pregnancy, this is fine (strong orgasms) but if you have preterm labor, placenta previa, have ever had a placental abruption, or have an incompetent cervix among other high risk pregnancy problems, anything which causes really intense contractions is usually not a good idea.

I would also worry a little about the bacterial issues with anal sex. When you are not pregnant, your immune system is strong, but pregnancy causes a drop in immune function, so you don't see the fetus as an "intruder" and your immune system doesn't try to get rid of it. Thus, you immune system is not as strong and you are much more susceptible to viral, bacterial and fungal infections during pregnancy.

I'd ask your doctor, though. Every pregnancy is different.

You can live without a lot during pregnancy, if you need to, You know it will end soon, and the health of the baby is important. (I had to give up sushi and orgasmic sex. It sucked!)

Although there is very little data on anal sex during pregnancy I know I would NOT do it. I love anal sex, but I would give it up during pregnancy, to be on the safe side.

Hahaha, this is a little embarassing but when I was pregnant with my daughter was the only time that I *wanted* anal sex, and had no complications related to it. Now it was quite early in the pregnancy, so I do not know if it could cause preterm labor from causing intense orgasms, though, there's a thought on inducing labor that I may remember that for my next child. But I see no other reason why the actual ACT of anal sex would be dangerous.

I was too constipated to even think about anal during pregnancy! I know that sounds gross, but I could only think of getting stuff "out" not packing it in.

Not to make things awkward but that's what I'd imagine.

It's sad that it's so frustrating with getting straightforward answers on this. Thank you all for giving some great answers, however. My curiosity has been mostly satisfied. I just wonder if it's really safe or not. Looks doubtful, though.

It sounds as though it's OK if you're careful (doubly careful about cleanliness) and talk to your doctor if you're pregnancy is at all unusual.

You should really ask your doctor if it is.. He/she would be the best to advise because he/she knows your medical history
