By following the basic tips and recommendations outlined in this article, you can learn about how to adjust sex positions during pregnancy. While the positions described below have been found to be highly successful, it is up to you and your partner to determine exactly what works best for you.
- If you enjoy the missionary position, move it to the edge of the bed. The woman should be lying with her buttocks near the end of the bed, with the man standing directly in front of her. He will need to hold her legs either on his shoulders, or over his elbows.
- Another great way to adjust the missionary position is to allow the woman to be on top. This allows the woman to control both the rate and depth of penetration, and has been found to be one of the best ways for women to achieve orgasm.
- If you like "doggy-style," switch it to more of a "spooning" sexual position. The man will still be behind the woman, entering her from the rear, but instead of forcing the woman to be on all fours (which can cause major back pain during pregnancy), she get to rest on her side.
- Finally, as stated above, it is important to experiment in order to find what sexual positions work best for you. During pregnancy, the comfort of the woman should be made a priority. Let her choose what sexual position she prefers in order to ensure comfort and satisfaction for both parties.
