In brief: Oxytocin

One possibility is a reflex contractile response brought on by a hormone that is secreted by the brain.
Typically, this hormone is secreted in large amounts when you go ino labor. However, sexual activity can sometimes elicit a contractile response with limited production of this hormone, which can also stimulate breat tissue to expel milk. Check with your provider about specific concerns.
