A little embarassing but I need to know. When you are pregnant can you use a vibrator? I know that we are not supposed to use foot spas or have massages etc. but obviously as few people talk about it I have no idea if I can still use my vibrator with my partner.

Ermmm I am not to sure if you could. Maybe someone else will know Although am that you still feel like having sex while pregnant never mind adding in

i would have thought so, same as having sex (kind of). i think a lot of it has to do with having orgasms near your due date, some people can think that they are going into prem labour if its a long one iyswim!!!

The foot spas are because the risk of getting a bloodclot is higher during pregnancy, and the vibrations of the spa might make a clot break off and cause a stroke. As for massage, I was massaged throughout my first pg by a qualified massage therapist (and experienced nurse) who told me that massage was absolutely fine as long as the masseur knew about the pg and worked appropriately. I should think a vibrator would be absolutely fine - I read about a woman who used hers for pr during labour!

LOL! Just worked out that pr is pain relief - thought you meant it in the sense of publicity!

Oh, I don't know - after all, don't we always say that we don't give a damn who sees what after we've been in labour for a while!

I don't see why not if penetrative sex ok. Imagine that for a birth plan: a bottle of red, dp and a rampant rabbit... we could be on to something here!
