Sexual Desire, Satisfaction Don't Diminish During Pregnancy

Study found first, second trimesters don't mean lowered interest for most women

WEDNESDAY, March 17 (HealthDay News) -- Although women have less sex as their pregnancy progresses, they don't enjoy the experience any less, new research shows.

"We've studied men's sexual health for many years, and we have not studied women's sexual health, concerns, issues and problems in the past, and there's a gender information gap," said Dr. Irwin Goldstein, editor-in-chief of The Journal of Sexual Medicine, in which this new study was recently published.

Almost one-quarter (23.4 percent) of women admitted they were afraid that sex would hurt the baby.

In the course of researching her book, The Working Woman's Pregnancy Book, Dr. Marjorie Greenfield said that this fear sometimes ca
