AbstractSexual behavior during pregnancy was examined in a retrospective study of 150 Hong Kong Chinese women interviewed in the immediate postpartum period. Sexual activity was found to decline abruptly during the first trimester of pregnancy, and continued to decrease in frequency as the pregnancy advanced. The frequency of intercourse was lower both before and during pregnancy than has been reported in similar studies among Western populations. There was no consistent relationship between age, parity, level of education, or employment status and sexual behavior either before or during pregnancy. These results suggest that a relatively conservative altitude toward sexual activity persists within this population.
