Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you experience after intercourse could be suggestive of increased pelvic congestion at time of orgasm, vaginal infection, PID, injury to the soft and pregnant cervix etc. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for thorough evaluation especially to rule out chances of infection (as, if severe, it can be harmful to baby). Get started on treatment as appropriate. If infective cause is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection. Avoid rough intercourse, be gentle and be in your comfort zone during the sexual contact. Drink plenty of water.
Take care.
