orgasm and contractions

This may be a little to much but I'm 26w, 25w when this happened, the other night my husband and I were having sex and when I had an orgasm I think I had a contraction. I don't know though cause I really don't know what they feel like but it scared me. My stomach got really tight all of a sudden and it hurt. I only lasted about 45 seconds and then went away. Is that what a contraction feels like and has anyone else had this happen to them? I will ask my dr. and make sure everything is ok but now I'm scared to have sex again. My husband thinks it's nothing but I don't want to go into preterm labor over sex.

Re: orgasm and contractions

You probably just felt the uterus contract from the orgasm. It's very natural, but ask your doctor just to be sure.

In fact, I was two weeks overdue with my first baby and having sex was what got my contractions started that very night! So for me, it helped! But if you aren't due yet, I'd still check with your doctor.

They are entirely normal (Braxton Hicks) and nothing to worry about unless you are at risk for pre-term labor (your doctor would let you know if you are)! They WONT cause labor. You might find them a little uncomfortable, but they wont hurt a bit - so keep enjoying as long as you feel able!

Re: orgasm and contractions

Angel is once again right...they were probably just braxton hicks contractions, nothing to worry about in fact get used to them because you'll probably have your share before you deliver. And they get quite annoying after awhile.
