In pregnancy, the blood flow to the uterus and some other sexual parts gets increased, which allows orgasm to be more passionate. Studies show that sex can help lower blood pressure, making you feel calmer, and can even lower the risk of heart attack. Typically, these aren’t a cause for concern, but it’s a good idea to touch base with your ob-gyn just in case. It allows your to be sexual without having to have sex for whatever reason, and yet your partner (or you) can enjoy a release of sexual tension. Even if you’re still landing single o’s, your sensations are likely heightened because the genital and pelvic regions are engorged with blood (and blood and oxygen power orgasms), thus intensifying all kinds of stimulation.
