    Cramps After Sex

    Not sure if this is a topic that should go left unsaid or not. I am only 5 weeks along and last night have being with my boyfriend, for the next 45 minutes or so I had some annoying cramps on the left side of my lower back (almost at the hips). Just making sure all is normal and okay. Anyone else had this or know what causes this? I'm guessing that the uterus is stretching out and what not maybe aggitated it? At what point during pregnancy are you suppose to stop intercourse because of possible harm to the baby?

    Re: Cramps After Sex

    If you have a normal pregnancy you can keep doing it right until the end. Also, many people cramp for 30 minutes to an hour or so after sex when pregnant. I thought it was from having an orgasm which makes your uterus contract or something. Not really sure. I think it's pretty normal. I think bleeding with bad cramps is when you should worry.

    Congrats and good luck!

    I get the pain 2 afterwards and will put a heating pad on to calm it. I have read that a lot of pregnant women get BH contractions after orgasm, as long as it doesn't happen along with severe back pain and bleeding than your fine.. Maybe this is why they say in the end of pregnancy that having sex can help induce labor?

    Yeah the first time i was pg I would get really bad cramps for a while after having sex. I almost felt sick because of it sometimes. I was probably 4 weeks when it first started. I wouldn't be worried.
