I’m a 35-year-old woman and my boyfriend is 36. We have a great relationship and we both enjoy sex. The problem is that I’m pregnant,and I’m afraid that rough sex will harm our baby. He gets angry whenI tell him to be gentle, and accuses me of not wanting to have sex with him.What should I do?

There’s nothing wrong with having sex while pregnant, but some women might feel uncomfortable because of the changes that their bodies are going through. Sex is something that must be enjoyed by both of you. Visit your doctor and tel lhim about your fears, and take your boyfriend with you. Also, try to talk to him about how you feel, so that he doesn’t feel rejected.
