Sexual activity during pregnancy

A study of uterine activity and fetal heart rate changes during sexual activity revealed changes that under other circumstances would be considered ominous by attending physicians. Uterine activity increased, and several fetal heart rate changes were observed. Sexual intercourse during pregnancy has previously been associated with premature rupture of the membranes, increased risk of infection and low birth weights.
