What was this pain? (TMI, PIOG)

Hey ladies, last night after my fiance and I had sex (sorry if TMI) I felt this really bad cramp/tightening in my pelvis. It lasted about 2-3 mins nonstop. It would lighten up a little bit (not completely go away) then get pretty tight again. My fiance got me water and soon as I drank it, it stopped. Anyone have any ideas on what this was?

How far along are you??  When I was about 4 months or so my DH and I had sex and I felt like that...  I even went to the doctor and he told us that it happens alot and it's just a bruised cervix

 Happens to me anytime I have an orgasm, it causes a contraction. Nothing to be concerned about, it is normal!

Yep and everytime I did this when pregnant with DD the next time I went to my OB I'd be another cent. or so dilated.  It hurts a little but is well worth making progress at home rather than at the hospital.

Nothing to worry about. Everytime you orgasm, your uterus contracts - don't worry, though - this isn't hurting your baby! In fact they often enjoy the "rocking" of the contractions. As far as why water might help... Muscles often contract (think about when you get a charlie horse) when you're dehydrated. Anytime you have a cramp - be it uterine, or from exercise - water lubricates the muscle(s) and helps relieve the cramping. Don't worry, it's completely normal.
