Question: severe Abdominal pain after I orgasm

 badegg - Wed Apr 01, 2009 1:43 pm

Hi, I am writing this for my Girlfriend.

we have been having sex for awhile now she is 17 years old.

last night we were having sex and i was on top, everythign was fine.

then she got on top, everythign was fine. then she orgasmed.

she got off and as i was about to get back on top, she stopped and said she could move. i had to carry her back in to her house and all the next day and the night of the sex she couldnt move. she llayed in her bed and any movement hurt.

any suggestions?

is it pregnancy?

thanks, jack.

User avatar Hello,
I really don't know the cause of the pain but if it is related to pregnancy from a previous sexual encounter I don't see any reason why orgasm would affect it. in fact, pain is not a typical symptom of pregnancy unless it is ectopic and then I would not see it coming on suddenly after sex. However, because it is serious, a pregnancy test would let you know if that might be the case and ongoing, severe pain should always be checked out. There are causes of pain such as ovarian cysts and endometriosis but the only way to know would be to see a health care provider.

Best wishes.
