Introduction: Sex during pregnancy and its consequences have been subject to considerable speculationfor long. In Cuba, there are very few references to studies on the subject and in other countries, they show that pregnancy inexorably affects on the sexuality of most people. Objectives: Characterize the expression of sexuality during pregnancy in a group of new mothers. Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in Eusebio Hernández Gynecology and Obstetrics Hospital from November 1, 2007 to March 30, 2008. A sample of 300 women was selected. They met the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Results: 23% reported an increase in sexual activity during the second quarter, while the rest referred to remain the same. 64% represented the quality of sex was like before pregnancy. 89% stated that the sex had been rewarding, and 92% felt that sexual relations should be maintained during pregnancy. Conclusions: Sexual desire remained in the patients studied, but sex frequency decreased, as pregnancy progressed. Most respondents evaluated rewarding sex during this time, maintaining the quality and the preferred form thereof. A not inconsiderable number of them had received no information about it.
