Can you tell me about pregnancy contractions after sex?

Dr. Charles Whiting answered

Common: There are prostaglandins in semen. Prostaglandins cause uterine contractions. In fact, we use prostaglandins to soften the cervix at the beginning of a labor induction. The contractions after intercourse aren't usually a problem unless you a reason to avoid them such as a history of pre-term labor, bleeding, etc. Best wishes!
