Sometimes, and this is probably 10 percent of the time, my stomach hurts after sex. usually it happens when im on top. My boyfriend is 8 inches and im a size 4 so not extremely petite or anything but could he be hurting me? Also could I have anything happen thats really bad from this? I dont want him to puncture anything!

Don't worry- a penis on its own is not going to puncture anything inside you.

What's probably happening is that he is hitting your cervix, or putting pressure against your uterus that causes you discomfort.

As long as you're not feeling any pains during intercourse I wouldn't worry too much about it. Since it happens more often when you're on top, it may be a good idea to try some different positions and find one that gives you the least amount of trouble.

If the stomach aches ever persist for an extended period of time or become much worse, then it would be a good idea to check in with a doctor (and that would be more because the worsened pains could be a sign of infection, rather than from penetration/intercourse/etc.), but in the meantime I think you're probably fine.

Just to add something... Sexual activities can be like any other exercise and leave you with sore muscles. If you use your abs a lot, whether it's doing crunches or having intercourse, it could leave you with some pain.
