  • Its pretty normal.

    Your uterus contracts during orgasm, pregnant or not. Its just the mechanics of an orgasm.

    So long as the BH go away, don't become stronger over time, and don't become painful, you'll be fine.

  • Yes - but if they do not stop or get worse, call the doctor I thought I was having braxton hicks, and was up all night with cramping. I went to work the next day, and they started coming harder and realized I was in labor!
