Many women don't want to stop their love lives after they get pregnant. In normal cases, this really is considered a perfectly natural and healthy activity for a pregnant woman to perform.
But what about using adult toys while you are pregnant? Is it safe? Can it cause any birth defects or other problems?
Sex toys are perfectly safe, as long as you are responsible when using them, and you clean them regularly and thoroughly (preferably after each time you use them). And don't share your sexual toys with another woman, it's possible you might get a sexually transmitted disease this way. A lot of adult sex toys are made from absorbent materials and cleaning them after sharing them wouldn't be enough, so in case you are going to share your adult toys, use a condom over the toy.
Take care when using penetrative sex toys if you're in your first trimester of pregnancy. Being overly vigorous together with your sex toy might lead to damage to both your baby and you.
One of the biggest things that you should take into consideration is how much pressure you will end up using when you choose to have fun with a sex toy. Be careful and remember that sex toys might put a lot more pressure than a real flesh could. Just make sure you set the pressure level to be low, forceful or high pressure sexual acts are dangerous to both your baby and to you.
