Doctor :   How can I help you?
Doctor :   Yes you can masturbate.

User :   heard that masturbation will lead to uterus contraction. my doctor has advised not to have sex. but nothing about masturbation, please advise
Doctor :   You can use gentle methods, the uterine contractions in orgasm do not lead to pregnancy loss.
Doctor :   You can masturbate. Sex is probably not advised due to the thrusts involved but
User :   my previous miscarriage was due to baby's low heart beat. i was admitted in the hospital to keep my uterus calm.
Doctor :   masturbation is definitely indicated.
Doctor :   Ok
User :   what relates between baby heart beat and uterus contraction
Doctor :   If the uterine contractions are strong prematurely, then the blood supply to the baby may be compromised and the heart rate falls.

Doctor :   Try to use stimulatory techniques rather than penetrative acts.
Doctor :   You are welcome.
