Hi dontknow,


No, who would want to have an orgasm if pain is involved!


You should really see a gynecologist and have some diagnostic tests.  I'm not a physician, but I know that there are conditions, such as inflamation of the bladder, that could cause pain during orgasm. Whatever the cause, with a proper diagnosis you can get proper treatment, so please go soon!

I am by no means any kind of doctor, actually I'm an 18 year old girl who has the same problem, and I've thought about it for quite some time. Do you experience this after just one orgasm, or multiple? For me it happens after having quite a few and realizing that having an orgasm means having the muscles in your uterus contract, I figured it only meant I was overworking the muscles, and is no different than if I did 50 squats and having my leg muscles hurt. ONCE AGAIN, I AM NOT A DOCTER but to me this makes sense. It is just an overworked muscle. I'm usually pain free if I only have a couple orgasms, but there are some days where I just can't help myself...

I know what you are saying. I have been having cramps after orgasm for several years myself. it is all okay during sex, but for days afterward there is cramping. It appears to be nothing serious as it has been the case in my life for years, but I wish someone could tell me what it is and how to cure it.
