I sometimes (usually) get minor cramps right after I orgasm in the same place I get them when I have my period. Its probably nothing to worry about but I was just wondering what might cause that.

Sex isn't supposed to hurt. If it does, you should probably get it checked out by a doctor ... And if you haven't had your "yearly", now would be a really good time

orgasm involves some muscle contractions and increased blood flow. assuming that your cramps aren't the kind that make you want to double over and die, then the contractions and blood flow might be it.

if you are doubling over in pain, there's something very wrong and you will need to get it checked out with a gyno.

Its not that bad, its about 1/8th of the pain of the cramps i get at my period, and i dont get bad cramps. And they only last for about 20 seconds. So the muscle contractions are most likely it. Thanks. And i do my yearly a little more often then yearly .

My belly, approximately over the uterus, feels tender after orgasm. Your cramps sound similar, and likewise, caused by muscle contractions, so I wouldn't worry.
