Pain and swollen belly the day after sex ?

I'm 5wks but was wondering if anyone can relate to what happend and why ...my doctor cleared me for sex at 3wks although we did try my belly was just to tender and I was nervous so it wasn't that great but the other night we decided to try again and it was much better and yes the big "O" did happen but afterwards there was blood on him and I bled a little also but nothing the next day except I was hurting alot
the next day and my belly swelled up especially on the right side above my inciscion and even today 2 days later I'm sore even to the touch feels like bruises....the doctor did say I have a hematoma (misspelled) could the blood possibly be from that ? and is it going to hurt and swell up everytime after we have sex ?

I think this is just like when you overdo--you get swelling and pain at first, a message from your body that it's really not quite ready for this level of activity. It gets better.

I seem to recall reading there's some scar tissue at the top of the vaginal cuff and this can bleed at first until it stretches and becomes more flexible.

Be patient with yourself and allow yourself time to heal. Be sure to call your doctor anytime you get worried.

**** girl! Bobbie, the first few times are supposed to be gentle.....you know, ease into this! Don't go Maybe you'll want to call the doctor just to make sure everything is okay, but I agree, it sounds similar to overdoing it and now you'll need more Good luck.

Though my Dr. cleared me at 4 weeks, no way did I feel ready (too sore) until I was 6 weeks...then it was fine!

Better to be safe than sorry. I would call the doctor right
away and completely explain your symptoms. I would
ask if it is normal, related to the hematoma, or do you
have granulation. My doctor told me if there is any bleeding
after sex to call her immediately. She said there could be
some granulation that she was not able to see at the
6 wk. check up. Again, hopefully everything is fine. But
just in case, I would talk with your doctor.
