Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
The reason you are bloated may not necessarily be related to sex. Causes of bloating can include: PMS, constipation, gas, food sensitivity, carbonated beverages, stress, drinking through a straw etc.
Sometimes have sex will cause the vaginal cavity to swell a bit to create a cushion during penetration. The depth, intensity, and duration of penetration during sex can also cause a sensation of swelling or "bloating" in the pelvic area. This can dissipate after some relaxation.
I hope that helps.
