Listen to Doctor: If your doctor meant "no sexual intercourse" (penetration), you should heed the advice. However, having an orgasm is a bit different. It often causes uterine contractions but seldom actually starts labor. I suggest you ask your doctor for clarification. Don't be shy!

Best to listen to: your doctor and not have sex for the safety of you and the baby.

A 40-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to have spotting after sex if I am pregnant?

Yes: Any new bleeding in pregnancy should be reported to your doctor/cnm. The cervix is very friable (bleeds easily) in pregnancy. Because of this, many women experience spotting after intercourse. I would not qualify this as normal, but it is very common and most times not worrisome.
