The Truth About Using Vibrator During Pregnancy In 3 Little Words

IT IS SAFE.

Some pregnant women’s morning nausea and fatigue kill any desire for sex—including masturbation. For others, due to increased levels of progesterone and estrogen, sexual desire (aka libido) drastically increases.

Women often wonder if using a vibrator during pregnancy is safe or if there are some risks. The good news is that, in most cases, it is completely safe.

And while your partner tries to be as gentle as possible (or God forbid he even avoids sex), you can provide yourself the pleasure you deserve and enjoy the benefits of masturbation. Of course, within the limits of what is approved by your OB/GYN.

You know what they say: happy mommy-happy baby. Read it again.

Let’s see what you can and what you shouldn’t do with your vibrator while pregnant.

How come that the vibrator is not harmful during pregnancy?

The Truth About Using Vibrator During Pregnancy In 3 Little Words

Pregnancy carries many risks, so it is not surprising that future moms are cautious and afraid of many things. It’s not like it shouldn’t be that way—they are fostering a life inside their tummy.

But masturbation, especially this type that will be discussed—with the help of a vibrator, should not be something scary. It’s natural and completely normal to think about the way to please yourself.

Okay, you probably know that it’s perfectly reasonable to have sex during pregnancy. Your partner will not touch the baby, will not push it, nothing will happen that should not happen (of course, you can not indulge in BDSM activities). Baby is literally ”sealed” inside of you with the help of an amniotic sac, uterine muscles, and mucus plug that closes your cervix.

The same goes for the vibrator—it can be used by any pregnant woman who previously consulted with her OB, and got approval. We’ll talk about safe ways to use it in further text.

Note: Don’t be ashamed to talk to your doctor about this. You should not think about using a vibrator without his approval.

On the other hand, there are still some ladies who should not masturbate this way.

Who should skip using a vibrator?

Some pregnant women, unfortunately, should not even think about using a vibrator (and having sex or achieving clitoral orgasm).

Not all pregnancies are the same, so if OB told you you are in any of the following ”groups”, forget about the vibrator:

  • If you have placenta previa (when the placenta is too low in the uterus), using a vibrator or even experiencing spasms from an orgasm might result in severe bleeding.
  • You’re at risk of miscarriage, or you’ve had previous losses.
  • Your amniotic sac is leaking liquid or the membranes have burst.
  • Your cervix has opened prematurely throughout your pregnancy.
  • You are expecting ”multiples”.
  • There is a concern about premature labor.
  • Vaginal infection occurred during pregnancy.

If you have not explicitly asked the doctor to use a vibrator, but he has already told you that sex is not allowed, it may refer to any type of penetration, and even to orgasm from clitoral stimulation (orgasm can induce Braxton-Hicks-type contractions).

Safe way to use it

The Truth About Using Vibrator During Pregnancy In 3 Little Words

If you are one of the lucky ones who are allowed to use a vibrator during pregnancy (you don’t belong to any of the above-mentioned groups), here is how to use it to be sure that you are doing everything properly and that there will be no unwanted situations. 

  • If you still don’t have one, choose a vibrator that will be great for a situation like this (more on the suggestions below). For preggers, online shopping is a lifeline, so jump to an online sex shop (such as Emma’s Sex Store) and find yourself a best friend who will make you happy during pregnancy.
  • Make sure the vibrator is completely clean before use. Vibrators are made of different materials and you can’t clean all of them in the same way. Take a look at this guide on how to clean sex toys.
  • Use lube if needed. Pregnancy can change a woman in many ways—hormones and physical changes are to blame for that. This also applies to the vagina. Due to the above factors, she may stop getting wet as she used to. Lubricate her and you’re ready to go.
  • Find a position that suits you. This will depend on how big your stomach is and how “flexible” you are. For example, if you are in the third trimester, it is best to have a mirror in front of you while you are sitting with your legs spread. That way you will have a good overview of the situation.
  • Masturbate with a vibrator moderately. When we say moderate, we mean that you should not push it too deep into yourself or turn on the strongest vibrations, and generally not be rough. You’ll reach the peak even if you are gently using it.

Anal is an option too

If you are a fan of anal sex, with an anal vibrator you can satisfy yourself anal. It may even be easier for you mentally because that hole is ”farther” from the baby. But bear this in mind—if you have those pregnancy hemorrhoids, you can’t enjoy this awesome play.

And never-ever go from ‘back hole” to ”front” one. You know this, right? Needless to say, how many disgusting, harmful bacteria can get into your vagina that way and cause immeasurable harm.

If you are a beginner, and you came up with an idea to start your anal journey during pregnancy, here are some hot tips for anal sex beginners that will help you master it.
