However, according to MedicineNet, here are a few reasons you might want to stay away from intercourse:

1. Spotting throughout pregnancy.

2. History of previous abortions.

3. Hyperemesis gravidarum.

4. A premature baby in an earlier pregnancy.

5. Signs of preterm labor in this pregnancy.

6. Incompetent cervix (the cervix opens very early during pregnancy, increasing the risk of preterm labor).

7. Placenta previa: Placenta covers all or part of the cervix.

8. If your partner has or had a sexually transmitted infection, STI.

9. Multiple pregnancies.

10. Intrauterine growth restriction.

11. Recurrent herpes outbreaks.

12. Having symptoms such as female organ bleeding, cramping, and pelvic pain.
