Absolutely, especially if you had an orgasm. The uterus tightens with intercourse when you are not pregnant but of course you cannot feel it then. It is perfectly normal and not at all dangerous. I have deleted an answer about cervical dysplasia, what that has got to do with this question I have no idea.

You do not get pregnant in your stomach. If your stomach is cramping it would be something you ate or a virus. If you don't feel better in a day or so, or if you start vomiting or have severe diarrhea, see a doctor.Pregnancy occurs in your uterus, which is much lower in your abdomen than your stomach. It's down in the lower intestine area.

If you are pregnant does your stomach hurt?

The pain you describe is very vague. Is it cramping in your lower abdomen? Have you skipped a period? Cramping during pregnancy, unfortunately, can mean multiple things; some are okay and some are not so good. It can be gas, constipation, your uterus growing; signs of an ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, and the list can go on and on. If the cramping continues and it concerns you too much you should contact your doctor.
