Help!!! Odd feeling in lower abdomen?

So, I was a virgin until about a week and a half ago, but a couple of days afterwards, I felt a slight pain in my lower abdomen, sort of like a period cramp, but then it also sometimes feels like pressure. We used protection, as I am on the pill and he wore a condom, but I was just wondering if this is a common thing after a first time or if it is something else?

Hello, Anon.

Thank you for writing.

I don't know that it's common after sex. A period like a cramp seems nothing to worry about though.
