Your water has broken
You are spotting or experiencing vaginal bleeding. Always check with your caregiver
You have placenta previa, in which the placenta covers the cervix instead of being higher in the uterus. There is a danger of damaging the placenta, and therefore the fetus's nutrient delivery system
When to Abstain
You or your partner has a sexually transmitted disease
you've had a previous miscarriage
(you may be asked to wait out the first trimester while the pregnancy establishes itself, though it's unlikely sex will have any effect on the developing embryo)
You have a history of either preterm labor or premature ruptured membranes
