Hematospermia: While this is not common it is not anything to worry about usually. It usually represents vigorous sexual activity that caused some trauma to the urethra or prostate. Most boys just get better quickly and they do not continue to bleed.

? torn frenulum: Happens to uncircumcised men. Frenulum is web of skin on underside of penis, attached just under the urinary opening ; attatched to inner foreskin. This can get torn during sex. May need to have it corrected surgically by a minor surgical frenulotomy. However, he needs to see a urologist, in unlikely event of blood coming from urinary opening. Hope you have had gardisil vaccination ; are using sui.

? back to you: With this question i ask a question back. How do you think co-sleeping will influence your sex life? In most cases it does put quite a damper on things especially if the baby is breastfeeding. There is a great deal of attachment going on not leaving much room for sex. But the bed will be full of love and its definitely full-on family cuddle time. As for the nap time on their own, your time is gold.

Generally: Unless there are particular problems with the pregnancy, it shold be safe to have sex during pregnancy. Listen to your obstetrician and if there are issues with bleeding, premature labor or other significant problems with the pregnancy, then sex should not be an issue.
