OK sex durring pregnancy CAN NOT cause an abortion, abortion's are caused by a vacuum like thing that a DR inserts into your cervix that removes the baby from your body!!! That is the only way that any thing can cause an abortion!!!! Sex is 100% safe durring all points of pregnancy. UNLESS your DR requests that you dont for medical reasons. Also sex during the last month of your pregnancy your partners sperm can enduce labor, but that is NOT a bad thing. So FYI Sex durring pregnancy CAN NEVER cause an abortion only a DR at an abortion clinic can cause an abortion, and the only way sex could harm the baby is if your DR tells you not to!!!

There is no problpem if you have sex during this period, you need to take precautions like not toput too much of pressure on the stomach. But avoid at the end of pregnency, this may cause damage to baby

yes it can lead to abortion i was told by many... but i used to have sex when i was pregnant too..but yes my husband was co-operative by not doing hard or hurt can tell your husband to stop if it is hurting you or if you see any bleeding, then you should inform your doctor...most of the time it does not affect the baby...atleast i had a healthy dont worry .. talk to your husband smoothly..he will understand.

Since u r in 4th month ure risk of abortion because of having sex is very little. So dont worry. just ask your husband to be somewhat gentle.
