Pelvic Rest No Intercourse
I have a marginal placenta previa at 20 weeks. My midwife recommends pelvic rest and no intercourse. Is masturbation okay?
See answer: This is a question you should definitely discuss with your doctor and/or midwife who are most familiar with you and your condition. Masturbation and orgasm are associated with uterine contraction which potentially may put you and your baby at risk of bleeding or other complications. Always best to heed the advice of your personal healthcare providers who are most familiar with you. ...Read more

Been on pelvic rest since 30 wks. Dr. Released me (36 wks), but have heard that sex induces labor - esp w/ long times between. True? Not ready yet.
No intercourse.: It means to avoid anything per vaginam (including sex, tampons, douche, or other devices). It is generally recommended when someone is at risk for bleeding (e.g. From placenta/vasa previa) or preterm labor. It is a common sense approach with not solid evidence of efficacy behind it, however it costs little/nothing and makes sense. Prostaglandins and trauma during sex can trigger labor. ...Read more

Yes, you may... but: Yes, you may, but don't use intra-vaginal device (dildo) to disturbed with the calmness inside vagina. For specific instructions, you should direct such or similar questions to your gyn-doc before you masturbate.

I had cerclage done at 20 weeks. What type of bed rest should I be on, strict, modified or just pelvic rest.?
Ask your ob/gyn: Most likely pelvic rest. However this is something your doc should have discussed with you.

Discuss this with your OB and he/she can adjust this as you get further along. No intercourse! ...Read more

Had sex on pelvic rest. Had small SCH but have not spotted/bled for a week since I last saw doc. Can the sex lead to miscarriage? No bleed after sex
Possibly: I typically have my patients wait 2 weeks after any bleeding resolves before resuming intercourse. There isn't a lot of science telling us the appropriate length of time. The concern is that the strain of intercourse or the contractions brought on by orgasm can re-tear the blood clots that have repaired at the site of bleeding (SCH). ...Read more
