Back Pain From Sex
Yes: I see many patients with back pain and sciatica who report increased pain during sex. If your back is sore or inflamed and the nerves are sensitive, the motion of sex may aggravate your symptoms.

This typically improves. ...Read more

My wife had periods two times last month. We had sex after second period. 2 3 times. She is having back pain now, is it a problem due to sex. She is 26?
Not likely: Usually if the back pain is caused by sex, there will be a very obvious association - for example, the back pain occurs only after sex (not any other time) and also occurs immediately after or during sex. If there is no obvious association, then the pain may be due to another condition such as early disc degeneration. See a physician if symptoms persist. ...Read more

Get a pregnancy test: It is likely that this could just a delayed and longer period due to factors such as stress/ exercise etc. There is always a chance that you may have conceived as well - if this is the case then the longer bleeding may mean, that the pregnancy is aborting.

I had protected sex with woman with hsv2 5 week ago. I have lower back pain and itch on butt. Been feeling it 4 a few weeks. Is this a sign of herpes?
Low risk, no worries: Herpes doesn't cause low back pain or "itch on butt". The chance of HSV2 from one episode of unprotected vaginal sex with infected partner is around 1 in a thousand. With condom protection, it's still lower. Don't worry about this. Also look at it this way: If you've had sex with say 20 different women, you can assume 3-10 of them had HSV2. The one partner you knew about isn't any more risky. ...Read more
