  • That's totaly normal. As long as they stop and don't progress into labor, you're fine. Orgasms release hormones that make your uterus contract, so once the orgasm is over and your body has time to process that surge of hormones, the contractions stop.

  • Sounds very normal, but mention it to your doc at your next appointment anyway, just in case.
