  • you always have contractions when having an orgasm. you just can't feel it like you can when your uterus is 10x normal size. lol

  • Perfectly normal and okay! :-)

    Later on you might hear people suggest that you have orgasms to try to go into labor, too. It's because sex (especially with orgasm) causes the release the hormone Oxytocin (which is involved in starting contractions).
    IF you were at risk for preterm labor you'd likely be told "no sex" for this reason.

    *There is no such thing as TMI on cafemom, lol!
