Orgasm is the most pleasurable moment of a sexual relationship, where the climax is reached during sex. However, for many women, intercourse can cause discomfort due to vaginal dryness or abdominal pain during or after sexual intercourse. There is always a lingering thought at the back of your head: Why does my stomach hurt?
Although climaxing is beneficial for conceiving, some women experience certain pains in the belly right after reaching orgasm.
When orgasm occurs, a wave of pleasure invades the body. The body experiences a shock that causes the release of a hormone called oxytocin and endorphins. Thanks to this release, the body suffers certain involuntary pelvic spasms in the vaginal area in the case of women, which causes the lips of the vagina to contract due to muscle contractions.
The sensation of climax is total and can be more or less intense depending on the sexual relationship. But if it is something pleasurable, why does my stomach hurt?
It is precisely due to the contractions that occur in the part of the pelvic floor and that are uncontrollable by pleasure since this can cause distension in the lower abdomen and pain right after the wave of pleasure.
When the lower area of the belly hurts after an orgasm, and it occurs at a specific time of the month, it is advisable to look at what day of the menstrual cycle we are. Reaching climax can reduce the tension or discomfort of menstruation, but it can accentuate pain if we are at the time of ovulation. However, when the pain is persistent and has nothing to do with the menstrual cycle or the contractions of orgasm itself, it is advisable to look further in case it could be a medical problem.
The cause that can cause abdominal discomfort after satisfactory sexual intercourse may lie in the so-called polycystic ovaries. At the moment of orgasm, these contractions of pleasure reach the ovaries. When there is pain apparently for no reason, it may have to do with an internal problem, such as ovarian cysts or infection. It is advisable to consult and contrast with a medical specialist.
What are the symptoms of fibroids? Many women have no symptoms of fibroids. However, fibroids can cause uncomfortable or sometimes painful symptoms such as:
- Heavy bleeding or painful periods
- Anemia (when you don’t have enough red blood cells)
- Bleeding between periods
- Feeling “full” in the lower abdomen (belly), sometimes called pelvic pressure
- Frequent urination (caused by the pressure that the fibroid puts on the bladder)
- Pain during sex
- Lower back pain
- Reproductive problems, such as infertility, multiple miscarriages, and early onset of labor during pregnancy
- Obstetrical problems, such as an increased chance of cesarean section
Can fibroids make your stomach hurt, or is it abdominal gas?
Do you experience discomfort, gas, or constipation? Is there a relationship between abdominal gas and fibroids? The appearance of gas can make us bitter at any time. Food makes us uncomfortable and bloated; other factors also involve excess gas.
Almost all of us have experienced abdominal gas pain at some point. This is a normal physiological phenomenon. Intestinal gasses can cause bloating and are mostly caused by bad habits that cause them to accumulate in the folds of the colon.
Chewing food correctly to avoid taking in more air than normal will be the first step to good digestion. Reducing the intake of certain foods such as legumes and vegetables can also keep intestinal gas at bay. However, women who experience large subserosal uterine fibroids end up compressing the organs near the area of the uterus, bladder, and intestines which can cause an accumulation of gas, constipation, or urinary disorders.
Most of the time, women with uterine fibroids do not experience any symptoms. However, others may have lower abdominal swelling, pain, or gas. Occasionally some women have problems with menstruation and suffer from headaches, pelvic pain, back pain, frequent urination, and constipation due to an enlarged uterus.
Feeling bad after sex is not very common, but it is not uncommon. We will tell you what could be happening to you.
You have had a night of passion where both of you have reached the climax, but the truth is that instead of feeling euphoric, your stomach is terrible. The truth is that it is never normal to feel nauseated after sexual intercourse.
The first has to do with the cervix, the guardian between your vaginal canal and your uterus. Contact with it during sexual intercourse or cervical stimulation can create a response in which blood pressure and pulse rate drop. This can cause nausea and even fainting. This zone changes throughout your cycle, making you more susceptible to penetration.
You may also feel like vomiting if sex is painful, resulting from an underlying condition. Women with endometriosis and pelvic inflammatory disease can experience stormy intercourse. If you experience any sexual intercourse of this type, you should see a gynecologist.
If none of these possibilities apply to you, that nausea could signify something more serious. Sex can irritate an ovarian cyst or hit a fibroid, disrupting your pelvic organs (in the same way as deep penetration), leading to vomiting and other symptoms. It is best to call your gynecologist for an examination.
