So, yesterday afternoon I had an upset stomach (dirrehea) but it was pretty much back to normal (Maybe not relevant??) That night me and my boyfriend had sex, a couple of times it hurt so I got him to switch position and then it was better. After sex I was really surprised that my lower abdomen was hurting, it seemed to kind of hurt in a line down my centre the most. It was quite bad. My boyfried rubbed my stomach and I started to feel better after 1/2 an hour. Today I feel fine but if I put pressure in a line under my belly button it feels uncomfortable, not quite back to normal. Am I having stomach issues or is this a gyno issue?

Stomach issue. You really shouldn't have sex when you have an upset stomach or dirrehea. That's your body's way of trying to clean out your waste and fast. Wait until it get's better, or take a over the counter medicine like Pepto Bismol =)

As well, when we're not feeling well, it can be common for it to be tougher for us to get aroused or fully aroused. If you had intercourse when you were not fully aroused, it may have also happened that your cervix (which sits lower in the vagina when we're not aroused or less aroused) got jostled or bumped in the process and thus, added to your abdominal pain.

So, lay off the sex for a little while while you're having this pain, and also until you feel back to normal as far as your tummy issues in general go.
