After orgasming it feels like something is going back and forth in my vagina. I don’t understand what it is, I read that it could be vaginal spasms?
It does sound like vaginal wall contractions which is thankfully totally normal! Orgasm is preceded by moistening of the vaginal walls and enlargement of the clitoris. The clitoris then moves inward and the vagina decreases in size by about a third with vaginal wall tightening. There are rhythmic and pulsating contractions of the uterus, vagina and pelvic muscles which is a normal sensation with an intensity that varies from person to person.
