A 28-year-old female asked:

Usually no worries: In normal women with normal pregnancies, orgasms do not cause problems or miscarriages, and of course miscarriages do not cause orgasms, although the two can happen coincidentally (at the same time). That said, if a pregnant woman has complications such as preterm labor contractions, her Ob-Gyn doctor likely will advise against activities that cause uterine contractions.
