Couple things: For women they may have some light bleeding or cramping after sex the first time. Possibly some vaginal discomfort and maybe even UTI symptoms (honeymoon cystitis). Sometimes with orgasm you may get some increased GI activity and the uterus does contract with female orgasm. However, if bloating persists and you skip your period, make sure to check a pregnancy test.
