Sexuality and pregnancy between misbelives and scientific truths - Sexual intercourses during pregnancy inevitably suffer of physiological and psychological changes that characterizes it. The partners’ intimacy would seem to fall even in absence of clinical risks for pregnant or fetus, that direct to a major caution. It is probable the lack of an open and clear dialogue on this by experts denies couples of clarifications and support that they need, leaving them at the mercy of taboo and misbelieves. Pregnancy, instead, could offer to partners a chance to try new forms of sexuality, helping to strengthen their emotional relationship in a moment in which they have to rearrange the relational equilibrium achieved previously. Key words: pregnancy, sexual intercourses, misbelives.
