User :   i am 8 weeks pregnant now. I went for my second scan in 7th week but the foetus heart beat was only 94. I was asked to get admitted in the hospital and i was under trips. After 2 days i went for another scan and the heart beat was only 92. I have been asked to come next week for the scan to see if there is any improvement in the heart beat. My question is i masturbated during my pregnancy. was it the cause for the low heart beat of my baby. I am pregnant through IVF treatment. Please advise.

Doctor :   Masturbation is a great release of sexual energy. I highly encourage this for women. It's also great to have a session of mutual masturbation if you're not interested in penetration. Masturbation is also a good thing to think of if only one person in the relationship is interested in sex at that particular moment. 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
