It can be really great having sex, from the whole intimate and exciting moment to the climax stage……we totally get it. But while you might have enjoyed every bit of the blowjob, thrusting, and smooches, it’s actually what happens after that can lead to some soreness.
Some really strange and surprising things can happen during sex like the change in boobs size, vagina, and more. See what these things are below so you don’t freak out when if they happen.
1. The cramps
It’s normal to experience cramping for a few hours after sex. The cramps can actually be caused by orgasms and semen. Just be aware that the cramps should be mild. If the cramps stay for a long period you need to get it checked out.
2. Emotional attachment
You might feel a stronger connection to anyone after being with them naked, but it’s also science and our bodies that we can thank for this. Oxytocin is released after sex, which is also known as the ‘cuddle chemical’ because it’s the one associated with bonding. It could also be the one that makes you really want to snuggle.
3. You can get swollen down there
If you’ve ever noticed that your vagina looks a little different after sex, you’re not alone. Your vagina can actually become swollen after sex from being turned on or from all of the thrusting. You need to be concerned if there is burning, itching, redness, or it feels hot to the touch. In that case, you might be having a reaction to the lube or the condom.
4. The bigger boobs feel
Ever laid down after sex and thought that your chest felt a bit different? You might think it’s from too much bouncing, but it turns out that your boobs can actually get bigger when you’re turned on. That’s right, it’s not only your nips that change size and shape. Just note that the effects aren’t long-lasting which is why your bra still fits.
5. The headache
Headaches can be caused by a lot of things, but sex? Yes, sometimes. There are different things that can cause them like whether you’re open to headaches, your vitamin levels are low, or you’re on medication that can cause them. You can also get a headache from the pressure on your neck during sex which can cause tension headaches.
