In brief: Usually not

It is usually not a problem for most couples to remain sexually active throughout pregnancy.
Late in pregnancy, comfort may become an issue, and some positions may be more comfortable than others. Some women with complications, such as placenta previa or preterm labor, should not have intercourse during pregnancy.
