Why do I feel bloated and experience cramps while having intercourse????
Hello, Every time I have had intercourse with my partner, I get bloated and cramp really bad up to the point that we have to stop. It even hurts to get up once we stop having intercourse. I have tried taking a warm bath and such, but it goes away eventually. It's the second time it has happened. Why am I experiencing cramping? can anyone tell me?
@yanara Hello, Penetrative sex can push air into the vagina or anus. If the air becomes trapped, you may experience gas-related pain in your upper abdomen or chest. Gas pain tends to feel like it's moving, so this pain may radiate to other areas. Your symptoms should subside once you expel the gas. Also, Similar to during exercise, straining the pelvic and abdominal muscles during sex can sometimes lead to cramping. Tight muscles, dehydration, or working the muscle in an awkward position can all cause cramps. These cramps usually dissipate after a few seconds to minutes. An orgasm can also cause cramps. Talk to your gynecologist. Thanks!!
