SEVERE Period pain after Orgasm
I experienced SEVERE period pains last night after my fiance performed oral sex on me, I had an orgasm, and straight away dull period pains started, soon they escalated into the worst pains I have ever experianced. They lasted for about 3 - 4 minutes, and only subsided when I lay flat on my stomach for a while. I am very worried, I don't want to worry about that happening again.

It is fairly normal to have uterine contractions at the time of orgasm. These should last a few minutes and then subside as yours did. If you have never had this before, perhaps you should have a check-up, but it does not sound like anything serious.
