Cramping after the 'deed'.

Ok so all of us are mature enough to know each one of us has had sex, so i don't think i'm sharing tmi lol.

After sex I've noticed I get pains in my lower abdomen, near my pubic bone and my belly hardens, not for a long period of time. Then I go pee. Is this normal?

I'm 24wksand3days.

  • Your uterus contracts during/after orgasm, pregnant or not. That is part of having and orgasm! During pregnancy you feel it more, and it may be a little more uncomfortable, for me it was actually kinda painful.

    Perfectly normal, but if it concerns you, of course you should ask your doctor :)

  • I had it happen with both my babies. I would talk to the doc if it hurts bad and if your tummy stays hard for more than 90 seconds.

  • Yup! Completely normal. This happened to me during both of my pregnancies. For me, towards the end of my pregnancy it actually got to be uncomfortable.

  • It happened to me! The other lady is right when you orgasm the uterus does contract. And the farther along in my pregnancy i got the worse it got for me. Good luck
