    If you are talking about a woman experiencing cramps when she has an orgasm, there are a few reasons that this may happen. First, when a woman orgasms, there are contractions of the muscles of the uterus. If she is having her period, these may be more intense, causing a cramping feeling. The other thing to think about if this is happening is the presence of endometriosis. In this condition, scar tissue can form on the outside of the uterine muscle. Since this tissue is not elastic, contractions of the muscle to which it is attached causes a "tugging" of the tissues, causing a cramping feeling. Fibroids can also give a cramping feeling on orgasm if they become large.

    It is not clear from your question, so I would like to include muscle cramps of other muscles during orgasm. Since orgasm tends to be intense, many people will tense their large muscles sometimes resulting in a cramp. This can occur in the legs, hips, buttocks or back. Usually stretching out afterwards is all that is needed, although physical conditioning and strengthening through exercise is always recommended to prevent this.
