After sex, I sometimes experience lower abdominal discomfort for a couple of days. It's uncomfortable but not painful. Girl on top position. What should I do?

I also want to ask about condoms and their effectiveness if put on properly and no slips, rips or tears. Well, what I kind of want to know is the meaning of "perfect use."

Per your first question, it's possible that your cervix is being bumped in that particular position. Make sure you're fully aroused (even have an orgasm first) before intercourse, and see if that helps. It may also just be that that position isn't comfortable for you, and that's fine. Not every position is great for everyone, it's just another way in which we're all unique.

As for your second question: perfect use in regards to condoms means that the condom was used for all genital contact, and did not slip off or rip/tear. With perfect use, the effectiveness is up around 98%.
