  • yea, during a female orgasm, there is a chemical you release called oxytocin, cause your uterus to contract, happens to me everytime! And when you have intercourse, there is chemicals in the sperm that actually cause your cervix to soften. My doc told me that sex is the best way to induce, ONCE YOUR 38 WEEKS or more, because of all the chemicals that actally work.

    Id still ask tho.
    I also have an ovarian cist that cause mild cramping long before i was ever pregnant, either way, i dont think Nothing is fatally wrong.

  • If sex is deep and "rough" it could be that your uterus is being hit. Though there are other medical possibilities for the cramping such as endometriosis or cysts. Perhaps a talk with your doc would be wise =)

  • during an orgasm, your uterus actually contracts. that could be the cramps your feeling. or it could be a medical possibility as answered above. if it continues i would call your doc

  • It's probably a Braxton Hicks contraction... I get them after an orgasm, no matter how I get there.
