I’m pretty sure that’s normal…. Especially if you orgasm. Our uterus contracts up to an hour after orgasm but when we’re not pregnant we usually don’t notice it. Personally, as long as I wasn’t having any spotting & it wasn’t hurting I wouldn’t worry about it.

You can always ask your doctor about it though =)

Yep, I had this as well. Completely normal.

There was a time in the middle of my pregnancy that I decided not to have orgasms (I know! Whaaat?) because the after-cramps were so intense!! It was only for about 5 weeks or so, but then they lessened and I could orgasm again.

But yes, cramping is totally normal. The walls of the uterus expend and wiggle around when you orgasm so when you’re pregnant I guess it makes them wiggle just that bit more!

It’s pretty normal at any point in pregnancy. Only time you need to worry is if the cramps don’t stop and are accompanied by bright, red blood.

@blayne7:  I think at this point though, the orgasm is worth it!


AGREED! Enjoy it while you can… never had any issues until I got into the 2nd half of pregnancy… now it’s definitely harder to concentrate b/c I’m not as comfortable & well baby likes to move at will regardless of what I’m trying to do. LOL

yep, as PP have mentioned it is very normal. Orgams can cause your uterus to contract, and so can sperm. I used to have the worst cramps after sex, and later I found out from my doctor that the changes in my body during pregnancy made me sensitive to sperm.

@MissDareDevil:  

So true! Sperm can even cause your labour to start!

I mean right at the end of your pregnancy, when you’re pretty much due, sperm can start a reaction in your body and get labour started.
