No non-embarassing way around this one. Why do I occasionally feel sick after having sex? I know it's not an STI as I am married, but sometimes after sex I just feel like I'm going to vomit. It's usually anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes after. We are both healthy, so I'm clueless on this one. It doesn't happen everytime, but once in a while. Anyway to eleviate the nausea other than motion sickness tabs? Is this common? Any help is much appreciated!!

Thanks Smile

Sick...
I usually do get up right after. We don't usually have alot of time (any few minutes we can squeeze in when the kids aren't around), so I don't really have the time to lay for a while...but I'm gonna try. Is this a common ailment? Or is it just me?

I know exactly how you feel! And i mean EXACTLY! I get the same way. And i don't think its cause you stand up, or it would happen all the time. I don't get up ever right after. I lay for about, well a long time haha. But i get very sick to my stomach! So if anyone has any other advice for both of us that would be great cause it really is a bad feeling.

hmm i looked at this forum cuz i thought it would tell me anything about what happened to me. I had sex (well not really sex i guess) and then like two hours later i started getting a stuffy nose and sneezing alot and im barely getting over it after almost a week. i thought that was weird since i hardly ever get sick. i thought it had something to do with the sex but i thought that was kinda weird. my bf said he wasn't sick at the time...but his little brother was. no idea how he coulda got me sick though. any ideas?

Honestly, I'd bet it was just a coincidence. You can get sick feeling from sex, but unless he had the cold virus and passed it to you during sex, you probably caught it elsewhere.
or perhaps he was just a carrier of some kind've virus and passed it to you.

It usually takes longer than 2 hours to get sick from a cold virus ~ so even if he passed it to you during sex, it wouldn't have affected you right away.

It sounds like maybe you touched something the brother touched or something maybe at some point earlier in the day or the day before.

Colds come from so many places. Germs on door handles. Germs in the air. On the bus. In a classroom. At work. There is honestly no telling where you could have gotten them from.

Keep your hands washed Smile Hope you feel better soon.

well even if it was from him it doesn't really worry anymore. lots of people at school are sick right now so it's probably just a thing that's going around right now. no biggie. i didn't think it had anything to do with the sex though...more like through the extreme makeout part. had i not been so into the moment, i woulda thought it was a bit gross, what with saliva all over our face and all. but anyway, im feeling alot better =] I started being able to breath through my nose yesterday and now i just have a slightly raspy voice but it's all good.

I have the same nauseous feeling sometimes after sex. I am not sure what causes it...at first it really made me worried, but after the first couple times I just dismissed it...but it is odd....hmmm!
