Sex and pregnancy
Is sex during pregnancy safe? And until how many months is it safe, before the baby gets hurt. Do you have to use a condom? Does the spremicide in condoms not affect the baby?

Sex is safe as long as there are no complications to the pregnancy such as bleeding. In this case, your doctor will advice you not to have intercourse. The baby is not hurt by sex and you can carry on to 9 months so long as it is comfortable. A condom is not necesssary unless you are using it to protcet yourself from STDs.
