Thanks for your query.

Sexual intercourse at 36 weeks of pregnancy is not recommended .
She will be nearer to her expected date of delivery,and intercourse during this time can cause premature delivery , premature rupture of the amniotic membrane which can leads to secondary bacterial infections.

Hope this helps you.If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
