I am 16 years old and currently a virgin.

My boyfriend and I have been together since December 2008...He lives in Brisbane and I live in Newcastle, so we see each other every 2-3 weeks (when he flies down to visit and stay)...

Every time he visits we engage in manual and oral sex, and my "stomach" ends up having the most agonizing cramps; this has happened since the stays after the last weekend of February. It is currently June now, and I keep having these pains. [Frown]

I have had my period for almost 5 years now, so I'm pretty sure they aren't period cramps. The only thing I could possibly think of why the cramps occur, is because sometimes I don't orgasm or "squirt" from oral or manual sex, due to the fact that we get interrupted by something else.

Could the pains have something to do with the similar condition of "Blue Balls" that guys get? [Confused]

Absolutely. Vasocongestion ("blue balls") is something women can experience as well, and just has to do with the blood that moves to the pelvis and genitals during arousal not moving out of that area. Orgasm helps with that process, so it's more likely for vasocongestion to occur if you don't orgasm. Check it out: FBI Files: Vasocongestion, AKA: Blue Balls

Just to be clear, women ejaculating or not (which not all women do, and which, when it happens, often doesn't even happen at the same time as orgasm) will not have anything to do with vasocongestion.

Not reaching orgasm -- which is not the same thing -- however, will.

Oh okay...I thought my pains might have something to do with Vasocongestion, but I just wasn't sure. I had previously visited other websites about Vasocongestion and was given the information that girls experiencing Vasocongestion do not experience any pain. Therefore I got worried...lol

Thank you SOO much for replying to my post.
I really do appreciate it .^_^.

Oh and thank you Heather for letting me know that not reaching orgasm contributes to Vasocongestion.
