Re: sex

Your abdomen might feel hard after sex because your uterus will contract with an orgasm or from the movement. Also if you are feeling apprehensive your stomach muscles may have tightened up out of fear! Spotting after sex is not uncommon because of changes to the cervix -- sometimes the slightest "nudge" will cause a small bleed.

Re: sex

Hello spotting after sex is very normal and common the tightning thats contractions. sex can cause your uterus to contract. Im not positive about how nowmal that is so call the ob doctor or thethe hospital and ask for labor & delivery and ask them at your weeks and sex is this ok they should tell you over the phone. It will help put your mind at ease.

Re: sex

I have the same thing feeling every time my DH and I have sex.. I was very concerned at first also, but talked to my dr. and she said that everything is fine. Your uterus can contract after sex and that is all you are feeling... It won't harm the baby at all. When you get closer to the end of the pregnancy, however, sex can induce labor (something in the semen).
