Normally, there's no reason why intercourse should cause ovulation pains... However 50% of women experience irregular ovulation pains anyway, so know that you are not alone.

What I would say is if this pain seems particular frequent after or during sex, then it's possible you have either endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).

These medical conditions can be treated or managed, but are often really tricky to diagnose - so I would suggest getting checked out early on to rule them out.

There are many causes of painful sex including vaginal or urinary infection, lack of lubrication, tumors, irritants (like spermicide), sexual disease, physical abnormalities, previous surgery, sexual trauma, repair of episiotomy or tear, vaginismus, vulvar vestibulitis, endometriosis, tipped uterus, and skin thickenings that can divide the female opening or injury to the vulva or vagina, such as childbirth, rape or sexual abuse. Chronic pain during sex may be caused by adhesions following episiotomy or plastic repair of the vagina. Endometriosis, vaginitis, pelvic inflammatory disease and radiation therapy sometimes result in chronic painful intercourse due to adhesion formation at the round or broad ligaments, uterus or other structures.
