A new study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal confirms that sex during pregnancy is safe (with very few exceptions). Apparently, there are no Canadian guidelines regarding sex during pregnancy. The study looked at "complications of sex" during pregnancy. Such "complications" included pelvic inflammatory disease and preterm labor. It also examined whether sex is safe for women who have a placenta previa. In the end, it's apparent that a woman needs to discuss with her doctor whether sex during pregnancy is safe for her if she has any rare or known issues that could put her or her baby at risk. However, that was one of the purposes of the study:
