Headline *: “Sex in Late Pregnancy Won’t Bring On Labor”

In fact, a new study has found just the opposite: Women who were sexually active in the final three weeks of their pregnancies stayed pregnant slightly longer, delivering at an average of 39.9 weeks gestation vs. 39.3 weeks for women who did not have sex during that time.

“Sexual activity didn’t have an effect,” confirmed Dr. Jonathan Schaffir, author of a paper appearing in the June issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology and assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Ohio State University in Columbus.

But for other experts, the findings were mainly seen as irrelevant.

“I don’t think they answered the question. I’m not sure we need an answer to that question,” said Dr. Victor Hugo Gonzalez-Quintero, director of Maternal Fetal Medicine at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. “What patients need to know is that sexual activity is acceptable in most of the typical patients, all the way to term.”

The study did note an interesting increase among participants of babies born with bad attitudes, however.

I mean, how would you feel?
