Relax: During Pregnancy your cervix is more fragile and vascular. It can bleed much more easily from sex because of rubbing of the penis with it. Some women will also get cramping and contractions with sex as the male ejaculate contains prostaglandins. drink lots of water an refrain from sexual activity for 2 weeks. also get checked to make sure your cervix is not dilated and cervix length on ultrasound
