Hi. Low lying placenta might mean you have to abstain from sex. It is for your safety unless your gynae said its fine. As for your husband, i think many husbands stay away from sex not because they lose interest, but they are worry for their new born. Do not be despair. Trust and communication is the key.

Cuddling and being intimate without penetration is fine too.

Hi! Same thing here with me and I spoke to my husband about it and told him we could still be intimate in other ways without penetration and I think communicating to him clearly helps! But before that, we didn’t really have sex much too and when I asked him why, I think he’s scared of hurting the baby 😂 so ya our husbands are worried too

it is human nature to have needs but now we have a new life inside, maybe just bear w it for few more mths. I have low lying placenta too and my hub was more cautious than I am. He is trying his best to do his job as a dad, so just trust him and love him, it will do good for both u and bb too :)

Have trust in your hubby. We didnt have sex way before i even confirmed my pregnancy. He wants to make sure he doesnt harm the baby as well given that is our first kid. I always believe that a guy wants to go and have fun outside and i c it, i will just tell him dont waste my time.

I have Low lying placenta as well. And doctor advice not to have sex. He is protecting you and baby. Protecting your unborn child is more important than your needs in having sex.

me i should say the opposite😅my husband needs for sex increases while i dnt feel like i even want sex coz im afraid anything could happen to our first baby even though my gynae never mention anything about not to have sex.

when the doctor told us that I have partial placenta previa. My husband tahan the thing. Even tho I tease him he still tahan. Some more he said its for the baby

my husband is not having sex with since the day we knew that I am pregnant. dont worry, he's just protecting you and your baby.

Don’t think so much , t yay and faith is important 😊he’s not doing with u bcos he cares for u and the baby .

Don’t think too much. You should be glad that your husband is thinking for both of u and ur baby safety. 🙂
