Severe Cramps after Orgasm

Hi Doc. If I have not had sex in about 3 to 4 days and then I have an orgasm, I suffer from excruciating abdominal cramps. They feel similar to period cramps but last for at least 7 minutes, continuously. I have been on the pill for at least 9 years and I am very fit and my abdominal muscles are strong. What could the cause be and what can I do about it.

It is normal for the uterus to contract after orgasm. What you describe is quite normal.

Best wishes
