Well, i've been trying to find all i can on these. They are 'chills' as my gf put them, that she had after the last time we messed around. And the word aftershock popped into my head to describe them, and i could have sworn i'd heard of them before, but i can't find anything on them. I've gathered the general idea of what they are, but what i'm curious about is how long they last. Any help would be much appreciated. Its been over an hour and she's still getting these 'chills' every so often.

Do the chills occur after intercourse? Does your girlfriend orgasm?

yeah, she said it was better than any she had had before (i'm her first bf). She gets them any time she would start thinking about that time

On another note, why is this in the sexually tranmitted diseases section? To make it more clear, its a shiver, like you do when you get a cold chill. Its not an std, its just what happens (from what i've heard) after a woman has a particularly strong orgasm

Well, I don't see any problem there...the symptom seems connected to arousal, which is beneficial to the body and the mind!

In my experience, the reaction to sex like this should last as long as you are in the infatuation stage of love. This usually lasts from 6 months - 2 years ... until the relationship dynamics change.

This happens to me. It's been 23 years and I still get chills/shiver after we have sex (of any kind). It seems to me that heart rate goes up, temp goes up and after climax, as the body starts to return to "normal" the heat disappaits faster then it appeared ... hence the shivering effect. Makes snuggling after the fact more fun Wink
