Not sure: There is not a relationship between sex and nausea. If he has ejaculated, then you may be sensitive to prostaglandins in the semen. Try having sex with a condom and see if the symptom goes away.

Reflux?: I am not really sure, as this is an unusual symptom. I am going to throw out the idea that this could be related to reflux related disease. Consider daily antacids and see if this makes a difference. Anyone who is sexually active and nauseous should also check a pregnancy test too !

Sex: Nausea with sex may occur if the penis is banging against the cervix quite hard, if the ovaries are in a position in which they can be touched by the pressure in the vagina, and these can produce nausea or light-headedness. The complex physiologic process accompanying orgasm may produce many different reactions in different individuals.

Good Question: At 16 you shouldn't be asking questions here just so you know. It is not normal to feel sick after sex. You should be seen and evaluated. It could be physical, mental, or both.
