Why Does My Stomach Hurt After Sex?
at afternoon. I want to ask why my stomach hurts after intercourse? While I was pregnant. Is there a problem with my fetus? Please answer yes. Thank you
Hello, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
The complaint you convey may be caused by dyspareunia. Dyspareunia is pain that occurs during or after sexual intercourse, where this pain can be felt on the outside (vagina and pubic lips) or felt on the inside (lower abdomen, pelvis).
Some of the causes of this complaint include:
• Lack of warming up before sexual intercourse / lack of lubrication
• Vaginismus is a vaginal contraction that occurs reflexively to cause cramping or pain as a result of a psychological or physical response to being entered by an object.
• Inflammation of the vulva / vaginal lips and vagina
• Endometriosis is the growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterus
• Pelvic inflammation
• Inflammation of the connective and supporting tissues of the uterus
• Urinary tract infection
• Sexually transmitted infections
• Crohn's disease
• Infection or kidney stones
• Torn large intestine
Actually, having sex during pregnancy is not problematic and is not dangerous for pregnancy provided that during pregnancy you have never experienced problems and do not have a history of disorders in pregnancy such as:
• Have a history of miscarriage
• Have given birth prematurely in a previous pregnancy
• Current pregnancy with low-lying placenta or placenta covering the cervix
• Premature rupture of membranes
• Pregnancy with bleeding
• Pregnancy with cervical incompetence (the cervix opens and does not close) which can lead to miscarriage.
• Husband suffers from sexually transmitted diseases
During pregnancy the cervix is filled with thick and thick mucus, and there is a strong membrane that protects the fetus, so sperm will not affect the fetus. However, keep in mind that having sex during pregnancy can stimulate contractions in the uterus.
If the complaints do not improve, I suggest consulting and checking with a gynecologist. The doctor will conduct media interviews, physical examination and supporting examinations such as ultrasound, etc. Appropriate treatment can be given once the cause is known.
Some tips that you can do to reduce complaints include:
• Increase water consumption
• Increase consumption of fruits and vegetables
• Clean intimate organs before and after intercourse
• Get used to urinating after intercourse
• Limit the use of vaginal cleaning fluids
• Clean intimate organs in the right way, from front to back, to avoid the transfer of bacteria from the anus to the vagina.
That's my answer, hope it helps
