A woman’s uterus can be an amazing muscle in the human body. The uterus not only sheds its lining every month to give you periods, but it also expands and grows when the time is right to help give life to a beautiful little baby and helps that baby be born into the world when it’s time.

So, the uterus plays a role in pregnancy and periods, but what about your sex life? The answer to that is yes, it can play a role in your sex life and can have different effects on it. Throughout this article, we are going to discuss how your uterus affects your sex life, and all the relevant information you should know if you are interested.

Yes, You May Be Able To Feel Your Orgasm In Your Uterus

Can you really feel an orgasm in your uterus? Absolutely! Pleasure during sexual intercourse isn’t just about the clitoris, vagina, and the g-spot like you may have first thought, but the pleasure you feel could also be coming from your uterus.

Some women have the ability to feel orgasms in their uterus as well as other reproductive organs.

It’s important to note that not all women can be stimulated in this way, and if you don’t then that’s completely fine! If you are then you’ll definitely know!

How The Position Of Your Uterus Will Affect Your Sex Life

The position of your uterus can also have an effect on your sex life and how you feel pleasure during sexual intercourse. In most women, the uterus is tipped slightly forward. However, on average, about 1 in 5 women have a uterus that is tipped backward, which is commonly known as a retroverted uterus.

A retroverted uterus is absolutely normal and is not something that you should be concerned about. It shouldn’t cause any problems with your reproductive life. It can, however, make some sex positions uncomfortable, like ‘doggy style.’ The reason that this might be uncomfortable is due to the deep penetration of these positions.

Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to fix a retroverted uterus. The best option for you, if you have a uterus like this, is to find positions that are more suited to you and your uterus and make your sex life more enjoyable.

Uterine Conditions That Can Affect Your Sex Life

Our uterus can be a strong muscle, and it really does do some amazing things. However, sometimes women can be born with or develop uterine conditions throughout their life. This may or may not have an effect on your sex life as every woman is different, but you should be aware of the different conditions that can cause potential effects.


Fibroids are benign growths that can form in the uterus and can range from one centimeter to 20 centimeters in size. Fibroids are quite common and are more than likely to show up as you age if you are prone to getting them. Many women have reported that they have had no pain or discomfort when having sexual intercourse with their partner, however, it is possible to feel discomfort if the fibroid is large. As all women are unique, you may feel pain, or you may not, you might even feel a strange sensation.

As fibroids are benign growths, it is safe to have sexual intercourse. If you feel uncomfortable, then perhaps speaking to a doctor or professional about ways to have a sex life and manage your fibroids is a good option.   


Endometriosis is another uterine condition that may affect your sex life. Endometriosis is a condition where the uterine tissue grows outside the uterus. Common areas of growth include the pelvis and can affect up to 1 in 10 women. Symptoms of endometriosis can range depending on the severity of the condition, but most commonly women will experience heavy bleeding and pain. This can potentially make sexual intercourse feel less desirable, and could ultimately have an impact on your sex life.

Pain from Period

Pain is uncomfortable at the best of times, and many women can suffer from bad menstrual cramps or other associated discomfort when they have their period. Believe it or not, studies have shown that having sex when on your period has the potential benefit of relieving pains associated with your menstrual cycle. For some, having sex on while on their period sounds like a messy job, but it’s absolutely safe and normal to do.

Like we said, the uterus can be an amazing muscle but sometimes underlying conditions associated with the uterus can have an effect on your sex life. In no way does this mean that you have to give up your sex life or not seek pleasure during sexual intercourse. Finding what works best for you is the right way to go.
