I'm a 21 year old woman and have found that I get quite an intense pain after I orgasm. Normally if I orgasm only once then I'm fine, but If I have more than one, that tends to be when the pain kicks in. This happens just from clitoral stimulation, not penetration.
The pain is from my abdomen (usually down one side) and down to my groin. It's most painful when I pee. It doesn't burn or anything like that, just me using my muscles to pee causes intense pain.
The pain usually lasts for about an hour tops and eases off slightly when sat down. Is this anything for me to worry about? Does it indicate another problem??

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Having intense pain and symptoms after orgasm could signal problems due to increased pelvic congestion at time of orgasm or problems related to PID, endometriosis, adhesions, presence of cysts, etc. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and tests to confirm the exact cause. Get started on appropriate treatment as indicated.
Take care.
