In brief: Unsure.

Some of my response is speculation.
There are probably a # of possible reasons for nausea associated w sexual intercourse. Some women report nausea w deeper penile penetration ;/or rough sex. In this situation there may be pain which could trigger nausea. Indigestion ; acid reflux might be causative. Prostaglandins could play a role. In some situations – nausea or vomiting could be psychological.

in nature if some aspect of intercourse is upsetting (guilt, repugnance of sex, etc). Another possible scenario is that hyperventilation could occur with orgasm which may lead to nausea.
