Stillbirth at 25 w.: A stillbirth after 25 weeks of pregnancy is one of the most severely stressful events to overcome. Sexual relations should be OK at this point, but if your goal is immediate pregnancy, make sure you check with your OB physician first, to make sure whatever may have caused the problem with your pregnancy is not a potential recurring one.
