Has anyone experienced cramping after orgasm? Or know why this happens?
It has happened to me, but no bleeding and it goes away after a few minutes. But it hurts so bad! To the point where I don't want to have an orgasm. One of my pregnancy books says it could be because of congested veins....what does that even mean?
Happened my entire pregnancy I hated it. Its normal. When you orgasm your muscles tense up and during pregnancy can cause the cramping. The bleeding after sex during pregnancy is because your uterus is so sensitive. As always, ask your doctor or midwife if you are concerned.
When you have an orgasm, the uterus contracts so I think this is what you're feeling. Also, I have found that actually having sex will bring on my period sooner. It's strange, but true. I think the orgasm somehow helps start the cramps in the uterus if you're near your period. I have also had some cramping in my uterus without being near or getting my period (from masturbation as you described.) I'm not a doctor but in my experience this cramping goes away and seems harmless.
