Thank you for your question. There is no contraindication to having inter course during pregnancy provided all is normal and there is no bleeding. Sometimes nausea tiredness and fatigue mean that she may not feel like having intercourse. You can still provide closeness, reassurance and intimacy through mutual stimulation without inserting fingers into the vagina. Please seek advice and guidance from your obstetrician who knows the complete medical history and can guide you appropriately. Best wishes
