I was stressed out having abdominal pain & menstrual cramps & back pain, everything went away as soon as I had sex i even got hungry, normal?

Not sure: I haven't heard of sex curing those ailments, but I'm glad you feel better. Sex does release endorphins, which are 'feel good' neurotransmitters, so that maybe have been helpful. In addition, sex releases pitocin, (oxytocin) which has been termed the 'love' hormone, also going to make you feel better. Maybe having sex decreased the inflammation that you were describing earlier. ...Read more
