Endometriosis: Of course, this could be a lot of things. Particularly with orgasms, the uterus and/or vagina can undergo a contractile response. In patients with limited mobility of the internal genitalia, a situation than can occur with a process like endometriosis, the possibility of pain during and/or related to sexual activity is real. Contact an ob/gyn provider for a thorough work-up.

Not normal !: Both of theses are typical symptoms of endometriosis. This condition of endometrial lining tissue affecting the pelvis and causing pain and infertility. See a gynecologist with experience in resecting endometriosis with laparoscopic or robotic surgery.
