The orgasm is the most pleasant moment of a sexual relationship, where the climax is reached during sex. However, for many women intercourse can generate some discomfort, either due to vaginal dryness or abdominal pain during or after sex.
Although the climax is beneficial for the conception of a baby, for the skin and even for the mood, some women suffer certain belly pains just after reaching orgasm.
Why the abdomen hurts after orgasm
When an orgasm occurs, a wave of pleasure invades the body. The body experiences a shock that causes a hormone called oxytocin and also endorphins to be released. It is thanks to this release that the body suffers certain involuntary pelvic spasms and in the vaginal area in the case of women, which causes the labios of the vagina to contract due to muscle contractions.
The climax sensation is total, and may have more or less intensity depending on the sexual relationship. But if it's something pleasurable, why can it feel belly pain after orgasm? It is precisely due to the contractions that occur in the pelvic floor part and that are uncontrollable by pleasure, as this can cause a distension in the lower abdomen and pain just after the wave of pleasure.
When the low area of the belly hurts after an orgasm, and it occurs at a specific time of the month, it is advisable to look at what day of the menstrual cycle we are. Reaching the climax can reduce the tension or discomfort of menstruation, but it can accentuate a pain if we are at the time of ovulation.
However, when the pain is persistent and has nothing to do with the menstrual cycle or the contractions of the orgasm itself, it is advisable to look further in case it could be a medical problem. The cause that can produce the discomfort of the belly after the satisfactory sexual relations can underlie the so-called "polycystic ovaries". At the time oforgasm, these contractions of pleasure reach the ovaries, and when there is pain apparently without cause, it may have to do with an internal problem, such as cysts of the ovaries, or even an infection, which It is always advisable to consult and contrast with a medical specialist.
