In my other board someone said as long as intercourse wasn't rough the babies wouldn't be harmed if my girlfriend and I have sex during this pregnancy. I'm just wondering though, could anything hurt the babies at all? ANYTHING?

That's really something that she needs to talk about with her doctor, since the answer is going to vary based on her specific health factors and how her pregnancy is progressing for her (and if she's developed any complications). It's a common question that women ask -- her doctor will have heard it before. [Smile]

Like Erin said, the two of you need to talk to her doctor first to make sure that she's healthy enough for sex.

If the doctor says it's ok for you two to have sex, your sperm in itself won't have any effect on the baby's development.

BUT you need to use condoms & other safe sex methods to make sure your girlfriend doesn't get any STDs. Unborn babies can suffer birth defects from all STDs, or be stillborn or born premature. Some STDs can infect the baby while it's growing. Others infect the baby during delivery - and the baby can suffer health problems that will last it's entire life.

I know that sounds pretty rough... it's really important for both of you to use protection and be honest about your sexual history if you're going to have sex with each other.
