Abdominal Cramps After Sex
Women that notice they have abdominal cramps after sexual intercourse may get really worried that there may be something seriously wrong with them. There are times there may be nothing serious, but on the other hand, it may be symptoms of a health condition. Here are a few causes of abdominal cramps after sex.
Orgasms can cause severe cramping for women. Some women experience pain in their bottoms. Cramps can last from just a few minutes to a few hours.
Women who are at menopause or very near are more likely to experience this.
Most women will have pains if the cervix is hit during sex. If you have a tilted or tipped uterus, it is easier for this to happen. In this case, then it’s very likely for your partner to hit the cervix thereby causing pain.
Women in the early stages of pregnancy commonly suffer pains or cramps after sex. This more so after an orgasm. The orgasms may bring on mild contractions. At times, the pain could be mild and other times more severe.
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
Women who have PID may suffer cramps after sex. The main causes of PID are chlamydia (a very common STD) and for some, gonorrhea.
PID causes the fallopian tubes and uterus to become inflamed, this then can result in pain after sex.
Fibroids or Cysts
Fibroids are a very common condition in women. The fibroid is a benign, or non-cancerous, tumor that grows in the uterus. Cysts can be found on the ovaries. Both conditions can cause pain and cramps after sex.
They are actually the most common causes of cramping after sex. While they are generally harmless, it’s important to see your doctor if you are experiencing pain.
This is one condition that can cause pain or cramping after sex. Endometriosis comes as a result of the uterine tissue growing outside of the uterus. In some cases, it grows on the ovaries. If the tissue were in the uterus as it should be, when the normal process of bleeding comes it has an outlet but being outside there is nowhere for the blood to leave the body so it is trapped and that causes great pain.
Women with this condition have severe pain during their periods, so severe that their lives are disrupted from time to time. As a result of the tissue growing abnormally outside of the uterus, there may also be pain during sexual intercourse.
Whatever the cause, you are not in the best position to determine it, so please see a doctor once this occurs a few times.
