Can using a vibrator cause a miscarriage?

Can vibrators cause miscarriages?

Every pregnancy is different, but providing you are having a low risk pregnancy with no complications there shouldn’t be any reason why you can’t maintain a healthy sex life.  This also includes continuing to use a vibrator, if you have been doing so before you became pregnant.  A question that crosses a number of women’s minds is can vibrators cause miscarriages?  Read on to find out the answer to this question.

Pregnancy and Sex

When pregnant, some women find they have an increased sex drive, so want more sex than ever before! This is generally due to an increase in hormones, oestrogen and progesterone.  However other women can find that they don’t want sex at all and their sex drive falls through the floor! Sometime if women struggle to conceive or have particularly bad morning sickness or tiredness, sex is the last thing on their minds.

In most cases it is healthy to keep your sex life as normal as possible, this doesn’t mean starting any new sexual activity, just maintaining what you were doing before you were pregnant.  However some women may question whether vibrators can cause miscarriages,  Our answer – if you were using vibrators before you got pregnant, then carry on!

Pregnancy and Masturbation

Masturbating can be a great source of pleasure during pregnancy, especially in later pregnancy when your bump gets bigger. This could be a time to start making the most of a bit of “you time”.  There are a wide range of massagers and clitoral stimulators which don’t need to be inserted into the vagina, so if you are worried these toys can be a safe option. We have chosen two sex toys that are guaranteed to provide self-pleasure and amazing vaginal orgasms.

Sexual Hygiene and safety in pregnancy

Hygiene and safety are even more important when you are pregnant, so make sure when using a sex toy, you follow the guidelines below:

  • Wash your sex toy thoroughly before and after use.
  • It is best to use warm soapy water, then rinse the toy thoroughly and dry.
  • Keep the toy stored in a clean place, then before use rinse again.
  • Do not share sex toys and do not use the same sex toy in your vagina and anus as bacteria may be transferred and cause infection.
  • Make sure your toy does not contain phthalates, as they could disrupt the hormones in your body. It is always best to have a high-quality silicone, so try to avoid cheaper sex toys if possible.

Sometimes during pregnancy, when you have a vaginal orgasm, mild cramps can be triggered, which are known as Braxton Hicks.  These are completely normal and nothing to panic about, unless they become regular and painful.

The only time you should not use a sex toy is if your doctor has told you not to have sex, you have a vaginal infection, or your waters have broken. Also, if you have had any vaginal bleeding you may want to consult your midwife first.

You may find that when you use your sex toy for the first time during pregnancy it feels ultra-sensitive.  The best thing to do is to use a lower setting or change the pattern as what your body was used to before may be too much now.

So, in short go ahead – have sex and use your vibrator – just stay safe!  If you’ve found ‘Can vibrators cause miscarriages and interesting read browse our full range of blogs and guides here.
