Here are some…: Having six or masturbation during pregnancy has continued to be common concern & argument among people & professionals because of irresponsibility & political correctness plus lacking scientific study to deduce which is which. Largely, most advice against sex & masturbation during pregnancy is anecdotal. So, avoid it during the1st or 3rd trimester in those of high-risk history; not for the others.
