    Me and my OH had intercourse lastnight, but as soon as we "did the buisness" LOL I had awful tummy cramps, really really hurt me. I was crying as I thought something may have happened to the baby, but Ive had no bleeding and ive had the usual morning sickness this morning.
    Just wondered if anyone else has experienced this and is it quite normal?

    Hiya Emma

    It's totally normal to have stomach cramps after sex. They are usually caused by Oxytocin. Oxytocin is realeased if you reach orgasm and causes contractions that can be quite acutely felt as the uterus is much bigger than normal.

    I know it's always worrying to have cramps, but I'm sure everything is just fine!

    Hope this helps

    There's a good article in this months Pregnancy and Birth magazine about sex and associated aches and pains etc. Really reassuring and definately worth a read :D
