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?

Are you pregnant ? Any orgasm can make your uterus contract which can cause a muscle cramp or even a muscle spasm . Since it goes away after a few minutes I don't think it's congested veins .

If you are pregnant how many months are you ? If your in the third trimester you could be having contractions after sex .

I get these cramps too. They only last a couple of minutes. I think it is normal to have them while pregnant.

Thank you for replying and yes, I am 10 weeks pregnant. I have read that this is not unusual, just needed some reassurance from others

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.

Thank you jaidynsmum for my siggy!

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.
