Pregnant after IF

When can DH and I get back to business?

Probably TMI but I know a lot of you can relate - DH and I haven't, well, you know, been intimate since about 5 days before my ER. We were told we couldn't do anything until the 1st ultrasound which was Monday. We both kicked ourselves on the way out for not asking. Thankfully we have another ultrasound tomorrow and you can bet we will be asking this time.

When were you given the all clear?!?

  • I was never put on any pelvic after the positive beta, but we really didn't do anything through the first trimester because we were both too nervous.

  • I was in the same boat.  We were told no BD until fetal heartbeat was seen.  Whne we saw it flickering on the screen I asked if it was okay for intercourse again and my nurse said yes.


  • My facility has a strict policy that you have to wait until you get a heart beat..

  • I don't think they ever told us not to.
  • Mine says not to do it until the first u/s. He went on to say that it's not actually dangerous to do it before then, but if a patient were to miscarry they would tend to blame sex as the reason. This takes it off the table. Interesting reason, but that's his advice.
