Will Using a Vibrator While Pregnant Hurt My Baby?

I get this question all the time.

Especially pregnant women who are in early pregnancy, say the first trimester.  And from women who are in their third trimester.

To see which vibrators are best for when you’re pregnant, scroll to the bottom of this article.

And more specifically those women who are wondering if it’s safe to use a vibrator during late pregnancy (36 weeks, 37 weeks, 38 weeks, and 39 weeks pregnant.)

Hey, I get it.  You will do anything to protect your unborn baby.  But hey, sometimes you’ll just need a release.  And since you can’t have 2 or 3 glasses of wine to relax, using a vibrator to orgasm while pregnant is as good as it’s going to get…as long as it’s safe.

Is It Safe to Use a Vibrator While Pregnant?

In general yes, it is in fact safe to use a vibrator while pregnant.  And in general yes, it is safe to have an orgasm while pregnant. (source: Baby Center)  There are a few things that you would want to consider.

  • I am not a doctor.
  • If you are at risk for premature labor consult your doctor  as contractions associated with an orgasm could get the ball rolling so to speak
  • If you are experiencing unnatural bleeding, having an orgasm may lead to heavy bleeding which could jeopardize your pregnancy.
  • If your water is broken you probably wouldn’t want to use an insert-able sex toy as this could increase your risk for infection.
  • As always, make sure your toy is clean, but it’s especially important when using a vibrator while pregnant.

I know a lot of women who used vibrators while they were pregnant and everything was fine.  As a matter of fact, I know a lot of women who used their vibrators more during pregnancy than at any other point in their life.  And why not?!?  They got extremely horny due to all the hormones and increased blood flow.  Sex didn’t sound good because they felt huge and quite frankly, their husbands annoyed them half the time.  So masturbation was the way to go.  I say lay back, relax and whip out your favorite vibrator.

Best Vibrators to Use While Pregnant

Now that we’ve established that it’s probably ok to use a vibrator during a low risk pregnancy, which one is the best?  Here are the top 3 vibrators I would recommend using during pregnancy.

1.  I absolutely love my Lelo Gigi 2.  It’s versatile, sleek, sexy, and rechargeable.  It has just the right amount of power without being too strong.  It works great for both clitoral stimulation and g-spot stimulation as well.  If you don’t have one, you should probably get one even if you aren’t pregnant.

2. The WildFire Slimline G Vibe can be pretty handy when you are pregnant.  Let’s face it, if you are getting towards the later stages of pregnancy it’s not as easy to get “down there” as it used to be.  While the Slimline G is technically a g-spot vibrator, it has a long handle which is awesome for reaching around that growing belly.
3.
  The Original Magic Wand might just be your best option.  Clitoral stimulation is probably the only type of masturbation you are going to be in the mood for.  And who the hell really wants to fumble around, and work really hard to hit the clitoris when you can’t even see it.  With the Magic Wand you practically can’t miss.  Plug it in (or upgrade to the newest cordless magic wand.)  Turn it on.  And lay it between your legs.  You’ll be there in seconds.  You can probably even do it hands free.
